Background to Tennis...

Tennis is an activity that is played with a racket and tennis ball, always on the same court size with a net in the middle but it can have either grass, clay or hardcourt surface.

It is an activity that you need an opponent and can be played in singles (1 v 1) or doubles (2 v 2). Courts can be provided for all to use for recreational play or owned by clubs where matches can be organised between members and even teams entered into local leagues.

Clubs will provide opportunities for participants to play against simlar levels of ability as well as introducing talented players to the more competive local, regional, national and internation levels. The Grand Slam tournaments are competed by well know professional players.
