Tennis

Print

Tennis is played by two or four players and it consists in hitting a ball with a racket. It is an extremely technical game, which requires high coordination. The purpose is to hit the ball so that the opponent should not be allowed to hit it again after it jumped at least once in the half of the opponent’s playing field.

The matches are divided in games and sets. A game is awarded with the score of 15, 30 and 40 and it ends when a player scored the fourth point. The set is formed of 6 games, but the advantage rule is valid; therefore, in order to win a set, someone must win with the two-game margin (for instance 7-5). Tennis, in general, is played on four types of surfaces that differentiate it depending on the playing field. The surfaces are the following: grass, concrete, clay or synthetic.
