We offer comprehensive and varied tennis courses with supervised training and learning content. If you can already play tennis or want to practice in addition to training, you have the opportunity during our unsupervised games. RWTH Aachen has six clay tennis courts at Professor-Pirlet-Straße. During the summer semester individuals who have the tennis card can play unsupervised games here seven days a week, including holidays. If you do not have the tennis card, you can book a court for an individual date or subcribe to use a court. The University's clay courts are not in operation during the winter semester. Members of the University are allowed to book a court at Tennishalle Vaals for individual units during specific hours.
