What is Beach Tennis?
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. It is a professional sport played all over the world and will be featured in the 2015 Pan Am games with prospects of being an Olympic demonstration sport in the not too distant future.
