The Women’s Fourths are a new team introduced to OULTC as of 2015-16. They train 1-2 times a week as a squad, but sometimes also have the chance to train with the higher teams too, both indoors and out. They have competitive matches during the week at Iffley Road and internal matches against the other squads along with the possibility of playing in the BUCS matches against other universities every Wednesday too. Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on side this year as all W4 scheduled matches were cancelled last minute and difficulties organising the W4 Varsity were also encountered– I wonder if Federer has the same problems. Often described as ‘Keen’, what W4 lacks in hard-core tennis ability, they make up for in demonstrating a genuine enjoyment of and enthusiasm for tennis as are always eager to get involved. So whilst the Fourths are not quite ready for Wimbledon just yet, this squad is full of players looking to improve their tennis in a sociable manner both offering opportunities to showcase talent to higher squads as well as playing with like-minded individuals on a weekly basis.
