Tennis: Home


Here you will find everything you need to know about the game of tennis. My name is Laura Hampson and I created this site for my Communications on the Internet course at the University of Florida. I started playing tennis after my aunt got me a tennis racquet for Christmas one year on a whim and I have been playing for about 10 years now. I played throughout high school and got my brother and several friends hooked on the game too. I hope you find everything you need to get out on the court!

Why Tennis?

Tennis is sport that can be played no matter what age. In children, learning tennis skills helps increase hand and eye coordination. For adults, tennis can be a great work-out, with its fast-paced volleys. Older adults can keep fit with tennis as the pace can vary depending on who you are playing. Tennis is a great social sport for all ages too. It creates healthy competition and in doubles matches promote teamwork. Tennis also doesn't require an entire team to play, so it is much easier to pick of a game in your leisure time. Equipment for tennis is also minimal.
