This sport dates back to the late eighteenth century, and a remote village in France. The locals hit a ball with the palm of their hands. At that time they called it Jeu de Paume. Later, they began to play on natural grass courts and invented some gadgets called rackets. The sport gained staunch supporters and spread across all English-speaking countries, especially among high society.
It was not until 1926 that, thanks to the creation of the first Tour, the sport turned professional. Currently, tennis has become universal and is played in nearly all countries in the world.
