Lawn Tennis Club

OULTC provides high quality coaching, matches and social activities for nine men’s and women’s teams as well as over 100 social members. In addition, the club offers opportunities for all members of the university, regardless of standard, to play lawn tennis. As a result OULTC currently has more than 200 active members.

Oxford is the only university in the club’s BUCS leagues that cannot provide indoor courts for all teams throughout the winter. As OULTC continues to develop as a club, it is looking to secure extra indoor training sessions and hire indoor courts for all BUCS matches at The White Horse Leisure Centre in Abingdon. This will enable the club to continue to attract and nurture some of the best players in the country for their age.

We would therefore really appreciate one-off or regular gifts for the following purposes:

  • £50 Court hire for an indoor training session
  • £120 Indoor court hire for a 2nds/3rds BUCS match
  • £500 Indoor court hire for BUCS matches for a 2nds/3rds team for a whole term
  • £1000 Indoor coached training session for two teams for a term
  • £2000 Taxis to White Horse Leisure centre for an OULTC team for a whole year
  • £3500 Indoor court hire for BUCS matches for an OULTC team for a whole year

Please get in touch at if you would like to hear more or get involved, and if you do not currently receive the quarterly alumni newsletters please contact

OULTC Prentice and Seabright Cups

Individual donations are invaluable as the main source of income supporting the costs of the Prentice Cup and Seabright Cup tennis matches and team tours in the UK and the USA, held every two years. The Prentice and Seabright Cups are respectively the mens’ and ladies tennis matches held between joint teams from Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and Harvard and Yale Universities.

In 2022, the matches will be played at the Seabright Lawn Tennis Club in Rumson, New Jersey on grass courts, with donations providing support to player travel and subsistence costs. In 2024 the matches will be played at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, Wimbledon – donations will provide support for the costs of holding the match itself, as well as tour costs of hosting our guests from Harvard and Yale.
