Tennis can be played indoors or outdoors, on clay, on grass, on a synthetic surface or just for fun on a tarmac course in your park or a local club. Here’s what to know before you enter the tennis court.

The objective

  • Your goal is to hit the ball in the camp of the enemy so that it cannot be returned.
  • The land is a large area and good players have to have endurance, agility, and cunning.
  • Only one bounce is allowed on your side of the field, so be prepared and stay on your toes.

The score of a game is a series of duels. Players must earn four points (15, 30, 40 and “Game”) to win a game. A 40:40 gender is called “equality” and a player must win two consecutive points ( “benefit” and “Game”) to win.

  • The service alternates with each game and the first six or more, with an advantage of two games, wins the “set”.
  • Most games are played best of three or five “sets”. If in a “set” other than the “set” decider, the score reaches six games each, players must engage in a “tiebreaker” and the player who scores seven points or more with an advantage of two points wins.

Play tennis strokes

In a long game, you will use the forehand and backhand, high balls over the head of your opponent and return quick volleys.

  • Practice the basic moves and master the service, which is open every point. Good service puts your opponent on the defensive.

4 Step Pouring

  1. Stand at the bottom line with your body perpendicular to your opponent and transfer a part of your weight on your back foot.
  2. With the right arm and throw the ball slightly forward, and bring your racket toward the rear in a “launch” position.
  3. When the ball reaches its apex, bring your racquet forward.
  4. Try to hit the ball as high as possible a point because it maximizes the power of impact and the angle of rebound, which makes it harder for your opponent to reach and return the service.

Forehand in 4 steps

  1. When the ball approaches you on your side of the racket (your right if you are right-handed), move the racket head backwards in a circle, so that it is up to the head.
  2. Turn your body to put any muscle power of your legs and your torso in the game.
  3. Continue the motion of the racket, designed to make contact in front of your body when the ball bounces to waist height.
  4. Complete the movement, so that the racket comes through your body, finishing up.

Setbacks in 4 steps

  1. If the ball is on your side without racket (you’re left if you are right-handed), move the paddle across your body so that it rests horizontally on your stomach.
  2. Try to meet the ball in front of the body.
  3. Hit (with both hands) when your weight is on the front foot so that your momentum adds power to the shot.
  4. Push with your legs and your arms at the time of impact, finishing top.
