On 10th February the touchtennis Varsity Cup Scotland took place at Dundee International Sports Centre (DISC).
The event which was organised by Abertay University ambassador Ross Taylor and, Dundee and Angus College sports officer Craig Nicoll, offered students from Universities and colleges across Scotland the opportunity to play tennis in a fun and friendly environment. 18 teams (RGU x 3, Dundee x 3, Abertay x 3, DA College, St Andrews x 2, Stirling x 2, Strathclyde, Edinburgh x 2 and QMU) made up of 76 students, competed over 52 matches in an action packed day, with some brilliant tennis on display. The University of Dundee took the title after beating Robert Gordons University in the final 3-0.
touchtennis is a rapidly expanding sport which sees players compete on smaller courts with 21” racquets and a unique foam ball. The abbreviated game is great for all abilities to compete together.
The event was sponsored by Jamal Property World as well as supported by a team of 11 volunteers, supporting the delivery of the event.
Well done to everyone!
