What is Tennis?

Tennis or lawn tennis is a racquet sport. It enjoys a long and proud history.

The game has evolved - it's now an Olympic Sport. The rules of the modern game are easy to learn. It's played between either two players (singles) or two teams of two players (doubles). Players use the racquet to this the ball over the net into the opponent's court.


Tennis can be a great workout and lots of fun. Playing tennis has many health benefits including:

  • increasing cardiovascular fitness
  • lowering blood pressure
  • improving muscle tone, strength and flexibility
  • increasing reaction times
