The Game of Tennis

Origin

Tennis was developed from a 12th century French handball game called "Paume" (palm). In this game the ball was struck with the hand. After some time "Paume" game produced handball "Jeu de Paume" (game of the palm) and there were used racquets. The game was first created by European monks for entertainment roles during ceremonial occasions. At first, the ball was hit with hands. Later, the leather glove came into existence. This leather glove was replaced with an adaptive handle for effective hitting and serving of the ball. That was a birth of tennis racquet.

 

This website was created very quickly for a project in my web design class, and I realize it isn't very "good" persay. I will not be held accountable if you lose your socks because they may or may not have been knocked off by this site. If you happen to like the website and also happen to be Mr. Herz, please be sure to give the author a 100 on this project!
