Since many years we play at Tennispark De Geusselt, soon attached to the “groene loper” of Maastricht. Our park has 10 smashcourts, from which 9 have the possibility of lights during the evening. We also hope to have padel courts very soon. Every Wednesday we have toss-evenings and once a month we have toss-drinks which guarantee awesome nights at our tennispark.

During the year we offer 4 training periods from each 7 weeks, and should you sign up as a member to the period you’re able to give preference for the day and time of the training. The training groups are based on level, the highest groups will most often be trained on Mondays. The trainings are given by a permanent trainer of ours on Tennispark De Geusselt, and are always given in the evenings from around 17:00 p.m. onwards.
Except for evenings when tournaments are planned, we have a toss-evening from 19:00 p.m. onwards on Wednesdays. During this evening members are welcome to play tennis, make some friends and have a few drinks. You can also sign up for dinner between 6-7pm. The toss is organised as follows: mostly doubles are played, in which members are paired together randomly each round, we do keep in mind the difference of tennislevels. Every half an hour new couples will be made randomly, so you will meet a lot of new people these evenings!
Since last year, once a month we organise a Toss-Drink. On this evening it is possible to, like every other toss-evening, play some tennis! Next to playing tennis you can also join the “borrel”, as we say in Dutch, and enjoy some (special) drinks between 19:00 and 01:00. During these drinks we enjoy a few (drinking) games, special drinks and shots. It’s a great way to get to know the other side of Stennis without the commitment of joining a committee!
3 to 5 times a year we have a small tournament. This will be organised by a committee and will mainly consist of a lot of tennis.
Once a year we organise a mix-tournament alongside Ready. This is mostly done on another Wednesday and cancels out the normal toss. During this evening, members of M.L.T.C. Ready and M.S.T.V. Stennis will be partnered up and play a few matches in doubles.
This intern tournament is held each year by and for members, where they can figure out which member is the best, both in the singles and in the doubles. During this week there will also be held a lot of activities and a party.
Bolsius Stennis Open
France has Roland Garros, England has Wimbledon, Australia has the Australian Open and the United States has Donald Trump, but we have Bolsius Stennis Open. This is one of the biggest tournaments of Maastricht, with a lot of awesome activities which will organised every year in some theme. This year we will also have the category 2, and i.e. there will be a pub-crawl, a cantus and a big party in the end of the week. The tournament is held in the last week of September, like every year. You don’t want to miss this one!

Every year we will go to four external tournaments: Fellenoord (Eindhoven), Veracket (Groningen), Chip & Charge (Amsterdam) and Qravel (Leiden). These tournaments are one of the best things Stennis can offer, with a cantus, pub crawl and many parties every single tournament. Every year many Stennissers join these tournaments. This is the perfect way to include tennis in your summervacation and enjoy the parties as well! Next to the extern tournaments during the summer, we are also on other tournaments during the year of other student-tennis-associations throughout the Netherlands!
Every spring M.S.T.V. Stennis participates with a large amount of teams in one of the biggest tennis competitions in the world, organised by the KNLTB. Members can subscribe for both the Saturday and the Sunday, and the competition will last 7 weeks. For more information and the exact data you should check the website of the KNLTB.
Every fall M.S.T.V. Stennis also participates in the fall competition. Of course all teams in every poule compete to become the champion, but above all this competition is very nice and a lot of fun with nice competitors. In the fall we will play on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. More information and the exact data can be found on the website of the KNLTB.
Internal Winter Competition (IWC)
Two times a year (during the winterperiod) we organise an internal winter competition on Wednesday evening between 19:00 and 22:15. This competition lasts 3 Wednesdays, and afterwards there will be a winning team in each poule. There are 3 poules (based on level), and each poule contains 4 teams of about 5 or 6 people and only doubles are played. Between the rounds you can have some drinks in the clubhouse at tennis park De Geusselt.
