About Beach Tennis..
While the concept originated in the 20 th century in Italy, beach tennis was only formalized as a sport in 2005 in USA and now is really taking off. The game is predominantly played between doubles teams, although singles can be played on a smaller court. Under and overarm serves are permitted and either member of the receiving team may return the service. A point is won if the ball hits the ground in the opposing court or if the opponents hit (or serve) the ball out or into the net.
Exactly the same scoring system is used as for regular tennis, except with the permanent use of no-Advantage, after Deuce. Plus there is no second service and no service let

I am so happy to have found this game. It is having the best of the both worlds, beach and tennis, at a very low cost and in company of awesome group of people. The game is easy to learn but very competitive. However, it is not about winning or losing. It’s about having a physical activity while having a great time with friends in the best of environments. Although, you would be exercising when playing Beach Tennis, there is never fear of bodily injury. It is low impact on joints and falling on sand does not hurt. I love it!

Beach Tennis completely change my life! I grew up playing competitive sports, so when I finished college soccer I was looking for another sport to begin. I was introduced to Beach Tennis and instantly fell in love. Listening to the waves crash while getting some exercise; It was defiantly my kind of sport!
