What is Beach Tennis?

Beach Tennis is the fastest growing beach sport throughout the world.  Currently being played in over 75 countries, the fast paced beach sport has goals of being an Olympic sport.

Beach tennis is played on a sand surface, similar to a volleyball court.  The court is 8 meters by 16 meters with a net dividing the two sides.  The net height is set at 1.7 m.  The player uses a paddle made of fiberglass and/or carbon fiber between 18.5 inches and 20 inches in length and depressurized tennis ball weighing around 40 grams (+-5g).

The server gets one chance to serve the ball from anywhere behind the baseline and must serve the ball over the net into the opponent’s court.  The opponents must then return the ball over the net and the point continues.  The point is over when the ball hits the sand or lands out of bounds.  Scoring is the same as tennis except it uses a “no-ad” system which means at 40-40 (deuce) it is a deciding point.  Matches are typically 2 out of 3 sets but can be adjusted accordingly.

It is an incredibly easy sport to play the first time and very difficult to master.  Often, players are playing a full match within 10 minutes of picking up a paddle.  The sport is suitable for any age or athletic level.

Beach Tennis originated in Ravenna, a small coastal town in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy.  Although there have been ball and paddle games for centuries, the first organized beach tennis match was played sometime around 1970.
