Beach Tennis

What is Beach Tennis?

The sport is a combination of Tennis, Badminton and Volleyball.  It's all volley, the ball does not bounce.


The Court

16m x 8m Doubles and 16m x 4.5m Singles

Surface is sand.  Depth of the sand must be minimum of 40cm and run back at least 1.5m.

The Net

1.7 metres high – optional height for men’s game is 1.8m.  Junior height (12 and under) is 1.5m.
