Special thank to Touchtennis channel. You can follow them here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQfiDdL55IN4CEk8ZI7E9tw Touchtennis: Touchtennis is a modified version of tennis played on a compact court with foam balls and shorter (21 inch) rackets. It's growing in popularity and acceptance as an alternative form of the full size game. Rackets The official touchtennis rackets must be no shorter than 20.9 inches and no longer than 21.1 inches. Most manufacturers "21 inch" rackets fall within this variation despite being labelled as 21 inches in length. The rackets head size may be no greater than 107 square inches. Balls Special foam balls have been developed to withstand heavy hitting. The official ball of touchtennis is 8 cm in diameter and made from cut foam. The official ball has the touchtennis trademarked logo on it. Court The dimensions of an official touchtennis court are 12 m × 5 m for singles and 12 m × 6 m for doubles. However, variances of up to a metre are tolerated on all lines in order to make the game more accessible and varied. Mini red/10 and Under Tennis dimensions are perfectly suitable. Players can also utilize a badminton court by lowering the net and taping a new service line 1 metre away from the badminton service line towards the baseline. So,if you have time, let's try ;)

Beach Tennis - A Combination Of Tennis And Volleyball

Tennis varies, and Beach Tennis is an exciting form of it. Beach Tennis - A Combination Of Tennis And Volleyball In other countries beach tennis is called beach paddle ball or nation-specific names like matkot in Israel, racchettoni in Italy, and frescobol in Brazil. In Israel it has been played at least since the 1920s[5], and in Brazil since the Second World War. In Italy, it was first played in Romagna near Ravenna and Rimini in 1978.[4] In 1996, it was formalized by Italian Gianni Bellettini,[6] president of International Federation Beach Tennis-IFBT.[6] The best players in the world are from Ravenna Italy: Alex Mingozzi and Matteo Marighella, two-time USA National Champions and four-time world champions.[6] On a trip to the USA by Paul Mapley in 2008, he and Marc Altheim met in a restaurant in Soho, New York, for lunch. Paul urged Marc to put together a US team and travel to Ravenna and try and win the World Championships of IFBT Beach Tennis. Altheim was reluctant at first as he had already spent time on the development of the racquet game which he had imported from Aruba. Jim Lorenzo, Alex Querna and a bunch of young American sporting pioneers boarded a plane for Italy to have a crack at the Italian players, who were undoubtedly regarded as the world leaders in the paddle style of the sport. Jim's party also packed their tennis rackets as they considered themselves the world champions of the "string" specialty; however they were met by a very strong opposition by some Italian players, also very proficient in the specialty. They met their match in both disciplines of the game, so like everyone else before developed respect for the Italian players and became supportive of this form of beach tennis. At this time Alex Mingozzi, Matteo Marighella, Alan Maldini and Nicola Gambi were considered top players, along with several female players led by the Meloni sisters. These players did not necessarily have a tennis background, but their skill with the paddle was second to none.
