The First Equipment Used to Play Tennis
The most well known piece of tennis kit is probably the racket – you probably know that the first rackets were made of wood and were much heavier than the rackets we use today. What you might not know is that the game of tennis (and rackets) have only been around since the 1870’s. Tennis evolved from a centuries old game called “real tennis” that used leather balls stuffed with horsehair and other convenient materials!
You can learn more about the history of tennis and the equipment used to play tennis on the website of the International Tennis Federation.
