Throughout the year we offer excellent possibilities to play tennis. Both in summer and in winter you will find an extensive program, so that everyone – of all different levels – can enjoy playing tennis. The tennis program offers courses and practice in groups, recreational playing and private training.

In the summer period (April until October) the tennis program will take place at Tennispark Buitenveldert. This is one of the nicest and most social tennis courts of Amsterdam, within walking distance of the Vrije Universiteit. Court number 3 is available for training practice and recreational practice the whole week. During winter, the training practice will take place on the Uilenstede location. Trainers Mariëlle Spekreijse and Borre Diesbergen teach tennis in a great, fun environment. They both hold a ¨KNLTB-A or -B license¨.

Throughout the year we offer several courses and training practices for tennis in Amsterdam. Tennis courses either take 10 or 4 weeks. The 10 weeks courses run from October until Christmas (indoor), January until April (indoor) and April until June (outdoor). The shorter 4 weeks courses are in September (outdoor) and October (indoor). Each course is available at different times and at different levels. Subscription opens one month before the start of the course, and is available at the desk or online. Each time slot requires a minimum of 4 subscribers per course. In the event of less than 4 subscriptions, we’ll try to place participants at a different time slot.

Recreational free playing

In the summer period you can play on the outdoor clay tennis court. You can check the schedule of the court to see when it is free. Those are the times you can play recreationally. To do so, you need a SVU recreational playing card and you must make a reservation! You can buy the SVU recreational playing card (or ‘vrijspeelkaart’) at the desk of either one of our two locations. Making a reservation for the tennis court is possible up to 48 hours in advance, online or in person at the Uilenstede location (or by calling 020-5985090). Please have the names of all players. A desk attendant will check in the membership administration if all those players really have a SVU recreational card. It is possible to continue playing after one hour, but only if the court is not reserved by other people. Stick to the rules of the tennis court. Wear tennis shoes and proper clothing. Use the rakes provided by the court when you finish. Players who don’t comply with the above rules, will be excluded from their right of recreational playing, without restitution of their paid membership fees. But of course, we hope that won’t be the case and that you’ll have fun at the tennis court!

Private tennis practice

During the outdoor season (April until October) there is the possibility for private tennis practice. With your own trainer, or with a small group, at an hour that suits you best. For the options and further information, you can contact To subscribe please go to one of our locations. If you play in a group, the payment of the entire group has to be done at once.
