So, what is beach tennis, exactly? Beach tennis is a sport that combines the best elements of tennis and beach volleyball into one exhilarating game. Played on a sandy court similar in size to a beach volleyball court, beach tennis requires speed, agility, and precision. Unlike traditional tennis, beach tennis is played with a specially designed racket that is shorter and lighter, making it easier to maneuver in the sand. The ball is also different, made with a lower compression material that's better suited to the wind and sand. The rules are similar to those of tennis, but the game played in doubles allows the ball to be played off the net as well. One of the best things about beach tennis is that it is a highly social game. Because it is played in doubles, you get to team up with a friend and take on other pairs. This makes it the perfect activity for a day out with friends, a family beach vacation, or even a team-building activity for your office.
