Tennis is form of “real tennis.” Real tennis has more intricate rules than “lawn tennis” (or tennis) does. It is said that tennis came about from Ancient Egyptian times but it’s only a theory. A lot of historians actually give credit to French monks in the 11th or 12th century for the creation of the sport. In that time the people who’d engage in the sport played it with the palm of their hands. They called this “jeu de paume.”
The sport goes back 1,000’s of years. Over time gloves were developed for peoples hands to play the sport because hitting it with ones hand was uncomfortable. Further on down the line came the tennis racquet. To learn how to play tennis for beginners, check out the rest of my site.
