Good question! Beach Tennis is tennis reimagined. It can be played on any surface in any season, despite its beachy name. Beach Tennis is all-volleys and a hybrid of volleyball, tennis, badminton, and paddle tennis. The game is played on a court similar to volleyball, with a net that is ranges in height from 5 ft. 7 in. to 5 ft. 10 in. with a depressurized tennis ball.
