what is tennis
What is Tennis?
  • Tennis is a sport usually played between two players (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles).
  • Each player uses a racket that is strung to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net into the opponent's court.
  • The modern game of tennis originated in Birmingham, England in the late 19th century as "lawn tennis"
  • After its creation, lawn tennis spread throughout the upper-class English-speaking population before spreading around the world.
  • The hitting area, composed of the strings, must be flat and generally uniform.
  • The frame of the hitting area may not be more than 29 inches in length and 12.5 inches in width.
  • The racquet must not provide any kind of communication, instruction or advice to the player during the match.

the game
The Game
  • Singles- 2 players
  • Server
  • Receiver
  • Service alternates each game
  • Serve from the Baseline
  • 2 Faults
  • Ball hits the net, Lands out, or foot fault.
  • Ball hits net and lands in= Let
  • A legal service starts a rally, in which the players alternate hitting the ball across the net.
  • A tennis match is determined through the best of 3 or 5 sets.
  • A set consists of games, and games, in turn, consist of points.
  • A game consists of a sequence of points played with the same player serving. A game is won by the first player to have won at least four points in total and at least two points more than the opponent.
  • The score of a tennis match during play is always read with the serving player's score first.
  • A game pointoccurs in tennis whenever the player who is in the lead in the game needs only one more point to win the game. The terminology is extended to sets (set point), matches (match point), and even championships (championship point).
  • For example, if the player who is serving has a score of 40-love, the player has a triple game point (triple set point, etc.)
  • A break pointoccurs if the receiver, not the server, has a chance to win the game with the next point.
  • Typically, a player wins a set by winning at least six games and at least two games more than the opponent.
  • The final score in sets is always read with the winning player's score first, even if the winning player loses set(s) during the match (e.g., "6–2, 4–6, 6–0, 7–5").
