My Favourite Sport-Lawn Tennis

By Shubham Sharma , VIII , E

My favourite sport is lawn tennis. Tennis is a sport played between two players {singles} or between two teams of two players each {doubles}. Each player uses a strong racket to strike the hollow rubber ball over the net into the opponent’s court. The modern game of tennis originated in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century as ‘lawn tennis’ which has heavy connections to other lawn games and to the ancient game of real tennis. After its creation, tennis spread throughout the upper class English class speaking population before spreading throughout the world. Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of the society at all ages. The can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including people in wheelchairs. Tennis enjoys a lot of international players and is a hugely popular sport worldwide.The most keenly watched four grand slam tournaments are The Australian Open, The French Open, The U.S. Open and the Wimbeldon.
I like lawn tennis as I am practicing for the last five years in my school and it had increased my concentration level and has made me agile. Lawn tennis is a sport which requires a lot of hard work and dedication to master it and I hope that I am able to achieve this goal soon.
