Tennis

Sport Overview

Tennis is played in singles (one-on-one) or doubles (two-on-two), and players rally a ball over a net using a racket to win more points than the opponent. Players play individually or in teams. Apart from the court size and the order of serving/receiving, doubles matches are played in the same way as singles matches.
