Tennis Origins


Most historians believe that tennis originated in northern France in the 12th century. But at that time, the ball was struck with the palm of the hand, hence the name, jeu de paume (game of the palm). It was not until the 16th century that rackets came into use for hitting the ball and this is when the game began to be called tennis.
