2015 M1 Varsity

The Men's Blues team start training just before Michaelmas Term gets underway. The Blues squad usually consists of around 10 players, who train together all winter, the final squad of 8 for Varsity being chosen in Trinity Term. The Blues train indoors during the winter at White Horse Leisure Centre in Abingdon and on the grass courts at Iffley Road Sports Ground during the summer under the excellent Abingdon coach Jon Maskens. They also have regular fitness and conditioning sessions each week.

The Oxford Men's Blues team has continued its great form, showcasing some great tennis and camaraderie over the year. With convincing wins over the Army and Old Blues, the team looked in good shape coming into the annual Varsity fixture, this year held at North Oxford Lawn Tennis Club. Despite all players fighting hard and producing some of their best tennis, the Cambridge team proved too strong and prevailed 15-6 overall. 

No doubt, however, we will be bouncing back from Varsity defeat and using it as motivation to push ourselves this coming year. Similarly, we will be fighting to regain promotion in BUCS, after suffering relegation due to some tough results.
Some of the Blues went on tour in Easter to Los Angeles, where we had some intense training sessions in even more intense weather, and some very competitive matches against US colleges, whilst also fitting in a day trip to Indian Wells and seeing all the sites too. 
The very best of Oxford's male tennis players continue their strong form and will be training hard and striving for success in all their matches in the year ahead.
