Beach Tennis | FIRST STEPS IN BEACH TENNIS

Introduction

Modern Beach-Tennis was born around the 70s on the beaches of the Italian coasts. It was not until 1996 that real beach tennis was born with most of today’s rules.

This sport can be seen as a mixture of traditional tennis, beach volleyball and badminton and today has more than 500,000 players worldwide. There are also international ranking competitions such as ITF BEACH TENNIS WORLD TOUR and Beach Tennis World Championships recognised by the ITF (International Tennis Federation).

Rules

The rules are a combination between tennis and Beach-Volley so that players must only hit the ball on the volley. The tennis scoring system (0/15/30/40) is used for this game, and the only difference is no advantage but a decisive point in a tie break to win the game. The first team to win 6 games with 2 games away from the other team wins the set.
