Welcome to the official website of R.S.T.V. Passing Shot, the one and only student tennis club in Rotterdam! Although a majority of our members is Dutch-speaking, Passing Shot is also home to an increasing number of international and exchange students. This section briefly summarizes in English the information that can be found on our website.

Passing Shot was founded in 1969 as a tennis student association and operated under the administrative wings of Erasmus Sport. For 45 years it has been a haven to numerous Dutch and English speaking students, looking for a comfortable combination of social and tennis related activities. As of now, the club houses a total of around 450 members. Aside from the yearly membership fees, Passing Shot members do not have any obligations or duties throughout the year. Instead, each member is sincerely welcomed to come and play tennis on a voluntary basis, during one of our club afternoons and evenings. Tennis levels vary widely from beginner to semi-professional, so you can be certain to find someone who matches your level. During the summer season, we almost exclusively play on the beautiful clay courts of Tennispark Kralingen. During the winters, we commonly play at the indoor courts of Tennispark Blijdorp or Tennispark Victoria. Aside from the club afternoons and evenings, members can subscribe to series of practice sessions throughout the entire year. In addition, numerous social activities, drinks, tournaments, matches, competitions and events are organized. Not even a week goes by without at least one fun activity, so be sure to check your e-mail regularly!

If you have finished your study, can’t play tennis anymore because of injuries or don’t want to be a member of R.S.T.V. Passing Shot anymore because of another reason, make sure to be aware of the following:

• You can unsubscribe by sending an e-mail or a letter to the secretary of Passing Shot (Achterharingvliet 60, 3011 TC, Rotterdam, secretaris@passingshot.nl).

• The association year is from September 1 till August 31. Your unsubscribing needs to be in possession of the secretary at least 1 month before the end of the association year. At the beginning of each year Passing Shot applies for the sports cards and that’s why unsubscribing after this date isn’t possible.

• After unsubscribing you’ll receive a confirmation of this within two weeks from the secretary. This is your proof of unsubscribing so make sure to keep it safe. If you haven’t heard anything within two weeks from the secretary it’s a good idea to contact her. We also recommend you to keep a copy of the e-mail or letter you send, so you can show you have unsubscribed on time.

• PAY ATTENTION: if you don’t unsubscribe at least 1 month before the end of the association year, your membership will automatically be extended with a year.

If you have any questions about unsubscribing from Passing Shot, please contact the secretary.


Practical information

The yearly membership fee amounts to 55 euros. In addition, a valid Erasmus Sport pass is required. If you already have a sport pass, please mention this on your subscription form. If you do not, your account will be charged by Passing Shot with an additional fee of 100 euros, in order for us to acquire your mandatory sport pass.

The membership is valid from September through August. Please contact our secretary if you have any questions regarding adjusted fees for late or early applications.

As a member, you are welcome to join the club afternoons and evenings as many times as you like. During these sessions, at least one member of the board will be present to welcome you and guide you through. Courts and tennis balls will be arranged; all you need is a racket and apparel. In addition, all members will be automatically subscribed to the Dutch tennis federation, which enables you to play official matches during the competition or any tournament held in the country.

Members can subscribe to several series of practice sessions held throughout the year. When the subscription term opens up, they are notified by e-mail. The practice sessions cost roughly 5 euros per hour, depending on the season. The practices are commonly given by experienced student tennis players from our own member database.

From April to December, members are allowed to play on Tennispark Kralingen at any time without any additional costs, as long as courts are available. As a common courtesy, please make sure you order something to drink afterwards.

When events and activities are set to be held, members will be notified by e-mail, and usually a Faceboook event will be created. All relevant e-mails are written in English as well as in Dutch, so we will make sure you do not miss any information!
