HAND TENNIS

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





A game of lawn tennis in which the hand is used in place of a racket.
A hand tennis court is smaller than a regulation tennis court. Its
dimensions are 40 feet long and 16 feet wide. The net is 2 feet high.
The server is called the "hand in" and his opponent the "hand out." A
player first scoring twenty-five points wins the game. A player can
only score when he is the server.

A foul line is drawn 3 feet on each side of the net, inside of which
play is not allowed. In all essential particulars of the rules the
game is similar to lawn tennis.
