History

  • Tennis is a game played between either two players ("singles") or two teams of two players ("doubles").

  • Originated in Europe (France) in the late 19th century

  • Tennis spread first throughout the English-speaking world, particularly among the upper classes.

  • British prime minister Arthur Balfour Wingfield, named the sport “lawn tennis”

  • Tennis is now once again an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of society, by all ages, and in many countries around the world.

Becoming Involved

  • Tennis is a life long sport that is always enjoyable and a great way to get exercise!

  • Tennis lessons are given by instructors that have extreme knowledge about teaching the sport.

  • Tennis lessons are always available, no matter what level you are at in tennis…beginner, intermediate, junior, national player, etc.

  • Other then receiving tennis lessons, joining clinics are always a good option! Tennis clinics are practices that consist of several other people included in the practice. Clinics are also a good source of fun enjoyable exercise!

  • Becoming involved in tennis was one of the best choices. I keep in shape and have developed into a nationally ranked tennis player. I now have many goals ahead of me, and will be working harder and harder every day to achieve them.

Scoring

  • A tennis match usually comprises one to five sets.

  • A game consists of a sequence of points played with the same player serving, and is won by the first player to have won at least four points and at least two points more than his opponent.

  • Scores of zero to three points are described as "love" (or zero), "fifteen," "thirty," and "forty"

  • When at least three points have been scored by each side and the players have the same number of points, the score is "deuce."

  • When at least three points have been scored by each side and a player has one more point than his opponent, the score of the game is "advantage" for the player in the lead.

  • A player wins a set when he wins at least six games and at least two games more than his opponent.

  • When each player has won six games a tiebreaker is played (First to 7, win by 2)
