Tennis

Originating in Britain in the late 19th century, tennis is played with a racquet and hollow rubber ball either on grass or a hard court that features a net across the middle. There are two games, singles, with two opponents, or doubles, with two players forming a team. One of the most popular spectator sports in the world, the annual highlights are the four grand slam tournaments that take place in Australia, France, the US, and at Wimbledon in the United Kingdom.
