Tennis is a top sport played by millions all around the globe. It originated in England during the late 19th century from lawn tennis. It is normally played by two people (singles) but is also played by four people in two teams (doubles). It is played with a racket and a small ball with a felt covering, which is hit back and forth over a net on a tennis court. A tennis court is a flat, solid rectangular surface with a low net that is stretched out across the centre. The surface is normally made of grass, clay, concrete (hard court) or a synthetic suspended court.
When you play tennis you play a match. The result is decided through the best of 3 or 5 sets. A set consists of games and games are made up of points. Normally for both men's and women's matches, the first player to win two sets wins the match. However at certain significant tennis tournaments for men, including all four Grand Slam tournaments, the final of the Olympic Games and the Davis Cup, the first player to win three sets wins the match.
Tennis has grown exponentially over the last 100 years. From the upper social classes of Europe and USA it has now become a sport enjoyed by millions all over the world. There are hundreds of national and international tournaments and many sports clubs throughout the world have tennis courts. People of all ages, social backgrounds and nationalities now love the game of tennis and it is watched on television by millions.
One tournament that comes to most people’s minds and holds a special place in the sporting calendar is Wimbledon. The Championships at Wimbledon is held once a year over two weeks at end of June and early July. It is not only the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world but also the oldest. It has taken place since 1877, at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon. The Wimbledon Championships is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and the only one still played on the game's original surface, grass, which gave the game of lawn tennis its name. With the growth of popularity of tennis have come photographs of tennis. The walls of many of the clubs all over the world are full of tennis photos. Photos of tennis players, photos of club members and of course photos of various winners of tennis events and tournaments.
