Introduction: Why You Should Play Tennis
Playing tennis is a great way to stay active and enjoy life. It is also an excellent way to exercise and improve your health. Tennis players are usually very healthy because they are constantly moving around. The game can be played by anyone, regardless of age or gender. You don’t need any special equipment to start playing, just some tennis balls and a racquet.
History of Tennis
Tennis is an old game that was first played in the 11th century. It was originally called “Tennis Court” and was played with a ball and a long, thin bat.
The game of tennis originated in France, in the 12th century, as “tennis de paume” or “game of palm.” The game became popular in England when King Charles II introduced it at his court.
In 1874, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield patented the game of lawn tennis (sometimes referred to as “Royal Tennis”) which is played with a modern racket on a grass court.
