Tennis is a competitive sport where players are seperated on a court by a net. The game is played one versus one or pairs of two on each side. Players use rackets to hit the ball to the opposing player/team's side of the court. The object of the game is to hit the ball in such a manner that one's opponent is unable to give a good return.
