Often people come for their holidays in France and fancy a game for some exercise. This is a French gite with pool and tennis court access.
This is a very popular game in France and most villages and towns have a court or 3 available to use. In fact, the name “tennis” is believed to derive from the French word “tenez” meaning ‘take it’ or ‘play’, which was shouted to start the game in Royal courts.
In the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries it became a more popular game in royal circles, where it was known as ‘jeu de paumme’, meaning ‘game of the palm, because players hit the ball with their palm. Over time, a glove was used to protect the hand, and later a flat paddle, which became the early racket.
