Tennis - Overview

Tennis is a racket sport played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Players use a racket to hit a felt-covered rubber ball over a net into the opponent’s court.

The objective is to win points by successfully hitting the ball in a way that the opponent cannot return it before it bounces twice or goes out of bounds. The game is known for its fast-paced rallies, strategic play, and physical endurance.

The headquarters of tennis is located in London, England, UK with a membership of 211 national associations.

The ITF’s governance responsibilities include maintaining and enforcing the rules of tennis, regulating international team competitions, promoting the game, and preserving the sport’s integrity via anti-doping and anti-corruption programs.
