Beach tennis is a combination of tennis and volleyball. It is played on a volleyball court and apart from a couple of exceptions, uses tennis rules.

The bats are known as paddle bats and the ball is a slightly depressurised tennis ball. Usually played in doubles, beach tennis is a relatively new sport, first becoming established in 2008, which is growing increasingly popular around the world.

Open to all ages and usually played in doubles beach tennis is a fun way to stay active and have fun with friends whilst being surrounded in the perfect environment of sun, sea and sand!
