RUB Tennis Team vice-champion at the German University Championships

The final round of the German University Championships in tennis team competition took place in Cologne on 27 and 28 June. The Ruhr-Universität team came in second place.

With a 9:0 victory in the round of 16 on 12 May against the University of Hamburg and a 6:3 success in the quarter finals on 16 June against the University of Münster, the RUB team qualified for the DHM finals. This was played in the Final Four mode in Cologne.

The playing mode in the Tennis Team Competition

Six singles will be played: First, four men's singles and then two women's singles will be played. Then three doubles will be played: one men's double and two mixed doubles. In all matches two winning sets will be played and a possible third set will be played as a match tiebreak.

The Bochum team was supposed to have played the semi-final against the team from the University of Hanover, but the team from the capital of Lower Saxony had to cancel their participation at short notice and so the RUB team was able to enter the final without a fight.

In the second semi-final, the hosts from Cologne beat the University of Freiburg 6:3 and were thus the final opponents of the Bochum team. After the first round of singles, the score was 1:2 for Cologne. After that, there were close matches, each of which was unfortunately won by the Cologne players in a matchtiebreak. In the end, the score was 1:5 after the singles, which meant that the Cologne team was the DHM 2023 winner.

The RUB tennis team can now call itself the German Vice University Champion 2023. This qualifies the team for the European University Games (EUSA Games) 2024 in Debrecen and Miskolc (Hungary).
