Tennis or lawn tennis is a racquet sport. It enjoys a long and proud history. The game has evolved - it's now an Olympic Sport. The rules of the modern game are easy to learn. It's played between either two players (singles) or two teams of two players (doubles). Players use the racquet to this the ball over the net into the opponent's court.

The lawn tennis association (the sports NGB) says 'Anyone can play whether you're a boy or girl, 5 or 95, live in London or Lands End. This is why three million people in the UK play tennis, you only have one other person to organiser.
