About Beach Tennis

Beach tennis is practiced in over 50 countries and there are more than half a million people all around the world,
having its greatest popularity in Italy, Brazil and Spain.

It offers an excellent cardio workout which is highly aerobic but with low impact to the knees and joints due to its practice in the sand. Similar to traditional tennis, Beach Tennis preserves most of the rules and scoring of tennis (15/30/40), modifications were made to adapt to movement around the sand court and to the faster pace of the game.

The main catch is you can’t let the ball hit the ground. Played entirely with volleys and smashes, make for quick, intense and exciting games. At high level play it is challenging and packed with adrenaline, and requires excellent physical fitness. Points start with a serve, and end when the ball touches the ground, forcing players to dive to reach difficult plays, similar to volleyball. The objective is to return the ball, with only one hit on each side of the net, as with tennis.

If you played tennis, any racket sport or volleyball, chances are you can play Beach Tennis on the first day.
