The incident of a ball stuck in the palms of the player could be where the sport began, according to the historians. This pattern then eventually developed into a racquetball game along the 16th Century, that eventually took shape to be the real Tennis. The term ‘Tennis’ came from the french word ‘Tenez’ which translates to ‘to hold’, ‘to receive’ or ‘to take’ in French.
