Just hit it

Tennis evolved from a French ball hitting game called ‘jeu de paume’. It was king Louis X of France, a fanatic player, who built the first modern style indoor court in the 13th century, which was later copied in palaces across Europe. Around 1600, the racket came into use and the game got its name from the French word tenez (‘hold’).

During the 18th and 19th century ‘lawn tennis’ gained popularity and the game developed. The lawn mower was introduced and now grass could also be used for tennis courts. In 1872 the first tennis club was founded in Leamington Spa, England. Modern tennis is played on a variety of surfaces such as grass, clay, and hard courts. Nowadays, artificial grass is intensively applied and one of the most used tennis surfaces.
