'Being part of Newcastle University Tennis Team during my time at NU was undoubtedly the highlight of my student experience. I loved the team environment, training sessions, the competitiveness of BUCS matches, and all the social events. Through this I have met so many great individuals, many of whom are now lifelong friends. The training programme and BUCS Wednesdays were a great challenge, and a well needed escape from my course commitments. It was a privilege to Captain the men’s team for 3 years and it taught me invaluable skills; teamwork, communication, discipline, commitment, and tenacity. I would not be where I am today without these experiences and all the incredible support I received from NU Sports Centre. My time as part of Newcastle Tennis Team, although longer than most, never seemed quite long enough.'
