The History of Tennis
An adaptation of a very ancient sport, the Jeu de Paume, Tennis has become a major sport followed by millions of fans across the globe. In 1877, the All England Club held the first Wimbledon tournament, and its tournament committee came up with a rectangular court and a set of rules that are essentially the game we know today.
