Just so, who created tennis in the 12th century and why?
Yet, history says that the origins of tennis, that grew up to be the game we know and play today, go back to the 12th century France. The French monks invented a fun game that they played during ceremonies. They hit the ball with the palm of their hand. The game was called “paume” from the french word that means palm.
Also, who invented real tennis?
Why is it 40 not 45 in tennis?
When the hand moved to 60, the game was over. However, in order to ensure that the game could not be won by a one-point difference in players’ scores, the idea of “deuce” was introduced. To make the score stay within the “60” ticks on the clock face, the 45 was changed to 40.
The modern game of tennis traces back to a medieval game called jeu de paume, which began in 12th century France. It was initially played with the palm of the hand, and rackets were added by 16th century.
