  2. The sport tennis • Tennis was first in the modern Olympics in 1896. Then it denied from the Olympics in 1924. After that it returned 64 years later. • Every country has to put in twelve athletes, six women and six men.

  4. How to play tennis • Players hit a ball to the opponents side of the net. The point is to score points so that the ball does not return to your side of the net within the boundary lines. • The first three points in tennis is scored as 15, 30, and 40. Then if you get the next pint you win. If it is tied on 40 it is called deuce. To win the deuce you must get the next two points. • Matches are best of three, but in the men’s single final it is then the best out of five.
