I really love outdoor activities or sports. So I am so excited to try this new beach sports that I discovered - THE BEACH TENNIS. 

Have fun and be competitive, Beach Tennis can be the next big beach sports event next to the widely popular Beach Volleyball and here in our country beach volleyball is super in every summer. 

Beach Tennis is a global racquet sport organized under the London-based International Tennis Federation. The world’s top doubles tennis players Bob and Mike known as the Bryan-Bryan Brothers – have declared the sun, sand and sea as more enjoyable while playing beach tennis! 

This action-packed serve and volley game has become a craze in Europe and the Americas. There are zonal, international and World Cup tournaments. In Asia, Japan is the top beach tennis country. The sport is actually tailored-fit for the Filipino racquet enthusiasts. It require speed, agility and of course a strong bond between you and your partner. Yup, you heard that right. Filipinos are basically athletic, loves to bond with friends and are natural lovers of the beach. 

Beach Tennis is fun and easy! Let me tell you more about it so you can picture it better.

The surface is sand and played with the basically same size of a beach volleyball court. Similar to the regular Tennis sport, beach tennis is played in doubles and singles.

Beach tennis rackets are called “paddle bats” and are like over-sized table tennis rackets and the balls being used are low compression "orange" balls – or soft tennis balls making the speed slower and the pressure lighter when you hit it.

Beach Tennis can be played by all ages and in every level. It’s a perfect way to stay fit and healthy while bonding with your family and friends on a regular day, holiday or even in a local tournament.
