More About Tennis - The World's Favourite Spectator Sport

The first forms of this sport appeared around the 12th century in France. Played by hand instead of with a racket, the first player known by name was Louis X, although the reasons for this were unfortunate. After a particularly challenging game, the King drank a large amount of cooled wine and died as a result. It wasn't until the 16th century that rackets were introduced and the game came to be known by its current title.

Today the game is played across the globe, with its heart in England where the world's oldest tournament - the Wimbledon Championships - still resides, the first match of which culminated in a major debate on standardising the rules of the sport. Millions flock to watch their favourite players pit it out against each other in the four major Grand Slam tournaments each year, with electronic review equipment making the game more intense than ever before. The 2012 Olympics popularised the sport further as fans of the game were given the chance to watch their favourites battle it out on the Wimbledon courts a second time and witness Andy Murray reap revenge over Roger Federer.

Watch these incredible athletes go at it in a test of agility and strength by purchasing tennis tickets securely on StubHub UK, your go-to secondary ticket marketplace.
