Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net and into the opponent’s court. The object of the game is to play the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. A core rule of tennis is that the ball is allowed to bounce a maximum of only one time on the court before it has be returned by a stroke. Basic types of tennis strokes include serve, return, ground stroke, volley, loop and smash. The player who is unable to return the ball in a valid way will lose the ball in play and for that the opposite player will gain a point. In tennis you play points to win games, sets and the match.
