IE Tennis Club

Written on December 15, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

With the cold winter days arriving the IE Tennis Club is getting quieter. However, as true tennis lovers such this doesn’t discourage us to hit the court.

We have organized our session in a two-fold fashion. One is to match and meet players casually whenever it suits their calendars. The other is a tennis ladder that organises competitions amongst players acco rding to their level. Thanks to our very active member base ranging from professionals to beginners the Tennis Club is able to match players with similar levels for the ladder games. Also, we are happy that we could implement the idea for the ladder into our Club which emerged from our members itself.

Our plans are to keep practicing in the beautiful sun of Madrid after the winter break and organise more sessions with a professional trainer. We plan to bucket members according to their level so we can arrange separate courts for different levels, with or without a trainer. Another exciting target is the collective attendance of the Madrid Open taking place in May 2018.

We are very proud of our diverse community who keeps enriching the IE tennis experience and looking forward to welcome more members!

Pick up your racquet and join IE Tennis Club!

Autumn for the IE Tennis Club.. Getting ready for MBAT!

Written on December 15, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

After a busy Autumn, the IE tennis club is looking forward to its winter physical preparation before coming back on courts early next year. Objectives lying in front of us are the MBAT 2018, which is the main sports event for Business schools held Barcelona. During the MBAT tournament, Tennis is played in the Davis cup format and gathers around 20 teams.

IE Tennis club has welcome new members from all levels this year and a new coordinators’ team is in place. Nata, Henri and Louis will replace Camille and Joseph from January 2018 onwards.

The craze for the tennis team has been quite important in the last few weeks, with players from every program gathering to play tennis together. Students from the MiM, the MiF, the IMBA, Master in Big Data etc have enjoyed the Madrid sun, playing in various locations such as Retiro, Pradillo, where the courts are of high quality.

We have also created a WhatsApp group for club members as a communication medium to meet, practice and play tennis. The group has been very active, and participants are bringing a lot of ideas. One of them concluded to bring a tennis teacher for players to level up and improve their technique.

In addition, an informal tennis championship is taking place between all members, allowing us to play in friendly competition and improve our technique and mental aptitudes.

2018, IE tennis club is coming for you !
