Welcome to the official site of the Rotterdam Student Society of Tennis "Passing Shot". Passing Shot was founded on September the 25th in 1969 by a couple of enthusiastic students. Our club has around 250 members at this moment. We don't only love tennis, but we are also a very social club. Trough out the whole year Passing Shot will organise tennis events and other activities.
Two times a week there is a club afternoon. From April until October (except for July and August) we play outside on the gravel courts of Tennispark Kralingen. In the summer months the club afternoons will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 14:00 till 17:00. In the winter months (witch starts in November) we play indoors. On Thursday, we play at T.V. Victoria, from 13:00 until 16:00 and on friday evening we play from 20.00 until 22.00 at Tennispark Blijdorp. The club afternoons are ideal to meet new people and it doesn't matter if you are a tennis pro or a beginner. Any changes will be communicated by email.
To get yourself in tennis shape, Passing shot provides free tennis lessons. In the winter we train on the indoor courts of Tennispark Blijdorp. And in the summer the lessons will be given on the clay courts of Ijsclub Kralingen. Before the lessons start you will receive an email, so that you can subscribe for the lessons. You will be placed in a group with people of your own level. The tennis lessons are always given on a Friday afternoon.
The Wokkel is the internal competition of Passing Shot which is traditionally being played from October until June on the first Thursday of the month.
Each year R.S.T.V. Passing Shot organises a members weekend. For new members this is an ideal time to get to know the club and some of our members. Because we want you to get involved in our club, new members usually get a discount. This members weekend usually takes place in September. In the agenda function on the website you can check the exact date!
