We offer a wide and varied program of tennis courses with instructed training and learning content. Those who can already play tennis or wish to gain some practical experience beside the course, have the opportunity to do so in the so-called “Open Play”. The Professor-Pirlet-Straße tennis facility has six clay courts for tennis. During the summer semester, by booking the tennis card, you can play here freely seven days a week, including holidays. Without the tennis card, courts can be booked for single hours or in subscriptions. In Corona times only the booking of individual appointments is possible. During the winter semester, the university’s clay courts are not in operation. Instead, members of the universities have the opportunity to book the tennis courts of the Tennishalle Vaals for single dates at selected times. From time to time playing on our Allwetterplatz Königshügel is also possible!

Rules of Conduct Corona Interim Program
Compliance with the Corona Rules of Conduct is compulsory for all participants of the interim program.
Tennis Shoe Requirement!
For participation in the tennis offer, own and the respective surface appropriate tennis shoes are required!
You will need outdoor tennis shoes (clay court tennis shoes or all court tennis shoes) to play on The Professor-Pirlet-Straße tennis facility's clay courts during the summer semester. Sports shoes for other sports are not permitted.
One exception is our Allwetterplatz, where it is also allowed to play with sports shoes for other sports with flat soles. Cleated and pimpled shoes are prohibited, as these shoes severely damage the surface!
Carpeted flooring is used in the tennis hall, so special indoor tennis shoes with smooth and non-marking soles are required.
We ask for your understanding, that to maintain the playability of the court surfaces the staff monitor and enforce the shoe regulations. In case of violation, you may be barred from further use of the facility and the fees will not be refunded!
Balls and Racquets
Participants with single-date bookings must bring their own balls and racquets.
Balls and rental racquets are provided to course participants. However, for the current occasion, we recommend playing with your own tennis racket.
Course Cancellations and Facility Closures
We will inform you about short-term course cancellations and sports facility closures of this sports offer by email during the opening hours of the Service Point. Outside these times, please check with the sports supervisors whether it is possible to play on the courts. The sports supervisor decides on the playability of the tennis courts.
