Tennis is a very popular sport played worldwide for recreational, competitive and professional reasons. Many people enjoy a good game of tennis with friends, families, colleagues, associates, relatives and more. It’s an “all-age” sport meaning that from children on up to adults engage in the sport.
Playing the game of tennis is a social sport with many health benefits both mental and physical. You’re able to burn off calories (or lose fat), increase your agility and reaction time, have fun with friends, enhance your muscle and increase your bone density, and more!
Many people ask where did tennis come from and the truth is: this sport was made back in the 19th century in England but many believe that the sport dates back to Ancient Egypt. People use to play tennis without the modern day racquets and balls we have. They supplemented those things with their hands as racquets and balls made out of other earthly material.
Tennis is a sport played either 1-on-1 or 2-on-2. There are opponents. Each team or individual play against one another. Equipped with a racquet and a ball, they serve (or hit) this ball against their racquets back and forth across a net to one another. Whoever lands the ball in the opponents court without them being able to return the ball, they score a point.
