The best sport ever! Where you hit a ball over a net and try to beat your opponent. There are many different strokes. For example, groundstrokes, vollies, overheads, serves, approach shots, etc. Grab a tennis racket, a tennis court, and a few tennis balls and you're ready to play tennis!
Tennis is so much fun! I could play it all day!

Famous tennis players include Roger Federer, Nadal, and Andy Murray and Andy Roddick.
Football(soccer) player: Hey, poofter, why are you playing tennis?
Tennis player: You can hardly call me a poofter, at least I don't run around with lots of boys with no shirt on!

Tennis ball (not the urban definition tennis ball). Young teenagers would carry around or have quick access to a tennis ball in order to play one of many urban wall ball games. This was ever more popular before the home videogame console craze when kids went outside more often.
