Delftse Studenten Tennis Vereniging Obvius started her seventeeth year and is one of the largest sport associations in Delft. Obvius has over 500 enthousiastic members.
Of course, the most important thing for Obvius is tennis. At this moment, there are two to three days on which trainingsessions are given by experienced trainers and for tennisplayers at every level. It is also possible for everyone to pariticpate in competition. This wide range makes Obvius popular: there is a lot of space for beginners bus also very experienced players are in the right spot. This year, two third class men teams and a fourth class mix team are playing on the Sunday during the fall competition. At the same time, competition is also played on Saturday by beginners and more experienced players who appreciate the cosiness.
Additionally, multiple tournaments are organised. One of the highlights is the open tournament which has grown to be a very popular event where both students and non-students compete. During the year, we also visit tournaments that are organised by other student tennis associations. Apart from these tennis activities, a lot of other fun events are organised. Every month we organise drinks and twice per year we organise a large party. In November/December there is the open party which is calles Smashed and in June we celebrate the birthday of our association. Also trips to Roland Garros, a skiing trip, a trip to the Dutch Student Championship (NSK), and a trip to the Davis Cup are organised regularly. Also, together with other 'green' associations from Delft, Obvius has been organising the 'Groenfeest' over the last few years.
