Beach Tennis can be played both competitively and recreational.and because it’s so simple to play, it appeals to athletes and non athletes of all ages.
It’s like regular tennis except it’s played on a regulation beach volleyball court. Using paddle rackets, two player on each team volley back and forth, hitting a slightly depressurized tennis ball directly over the net without letting it bounce… it’s hard to make the ball bounce on the sand!
One hit per team is all that is allowed.
Even if you are an absolute hack with other racquet sports, we guarantee that within half an hour you will start to show improvement, which its good enough for most people to want to have another go.
