Our women's 1st team compete in BUCS Scottish Tier 1 and the 2s compete in BUCS Scottish Tier 2.

Alongside this we have a large Development squad who play both friendlies and tournaments against other Scottish universities, helping hone their ability and progress them towards the BUCS teams.

Training Sessions

The club offers a large number of sessions for members of all abilities 

Socials

And finally, we understand that socialising is just as important as training and playing. That's why we organize biweekly socials for all members to attend and meet new people. From post-training drinks to organised events, our socials are a great way to make new friends, unwind, and have fun.

From those who've never held a racket to a competitive players, we have something for everyone – so why not come along and give GUT a go!
