jeu de paume

jeu de paume

The word tennis came into use in English in the mid-13th century from Old French, via the Anglo-Norman term tenez, which can be translated as hold, receive or take. The game commonly known as tennis derive from real or royal tennis. In 1979 the ITF limited racket length for professional play to 73.7 cm. Maximum racket width is 31.75 cm. The dimensions of the tennis court are 23.8 by 8.2 metres for singles and 23.8 by 11.0 metres for doubles. The height of the net at the centre is 0.91 metre, and it is supported at each side of the court by posts 1.1 metre high placed outside the court
