COURT TENNIS

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game, though very similar to rackets and squash, is more
scientific than either. The court is enclosed by four walls. A net
midway down the court divides the "service" side from the "hazard"
side. The rackets used in court tennis have long handles and a large
face. The balls used are the same size as tennis balls, but are
heavier and stronger. In play, the ball rebounds over the court and
many shots are made against the roof. While somewhat similar to lawn
tennis, the rules of court tennis are extremely complicated. The game
is scored just as in lawn tennis, except that instead of calling the
server's score first the marker always announces the score of the
winner of the last stroke.
