What is Beach Tennis?
Beach Tennis merges the worlds of Tennis, Badminton and Beach Volleyball into one energetic and visually exciting package. The sport is predominantly played as doubles on a court similar to beach volleyball, with players using purposely built paddle bats and a slightly depressurised tennis ball. Regular scoring is used, with no-advantage at deuce, no second serve, no let and of course the ball does not bounce. Sanctioned by the ITF, Beach Tennis extends one of the world's most popular games onto soft surfaces.
The sport of Beach Tennis is increasingly becoming more popular globally, with an international pro circuit being established and the Beach Tennis World Cup being held annually in Ravenna, Italy. On a national level, Beach Tennis provides a fun compliment to Tennis, for men, women, teenagers and younger kids. Beach Tennis is a great new addition to the traditional New Zealand 'Summer of Tennis'.
