Sport – Tennis

Tennis is a sport that is enjoyed by people all over the world. A singles tennis game is played between two people. When two players compete against another pair, the game is known as doubles. A game of tennis can be played with a ball and a racquet, which is the bat used to hit the ball.

Initially, tennis was played only among the elite class but slowly it became popular and is now played by every class of people. Its popularity can be attributed to the simple rules of the games and the little equipment that is needed.

Tennis is played on a national scale and worldwide tournaments are also conducted. An umpire has an authoritative position in a game of tennis and has the right to make decisions.

Tennis is played without any breaks. After a game ends, the next one starts exactly after 20 seconds. The only exception is when the players are switching sides and then a 90 seconds break is taken.

In tournaments, 120 seconds are given to the player before starting another round and this is extended only in special circumstances like damaged footwear or some technical problem. Weather changes may result in rescheduling of the match.

Even if you are not interested in taking this game up as profession, you will surely enjoy a casual round of tennis. Just select any open space, find a partner and you can start your game of tennis with a racquet and a ball. This is a wonderful game and can be played anywhere, anytime; whether you are on a picnic with your family and friends or just want to unwind after a day of work.

For those who love to play this game but can’t due to some reason, online tennis games are the best option. Here the computer is your opponent. The game is completely computerized. Although it’s not the same as playing a real game of Tennis, it is quite addicting and can keep you busy for hours.
