touchtennis is a new sport created by Rashid Ahmad in 2003; inspired by tennis, it follows the same basic rules as mini tennis red, small rackets and sponge balls.
The game is a real leveller and players of all abilities can take part in this fun format of tennis. The ingenuous design of the interaction, between racket-ball-surface-court dimensions, allows for longer rallies and putting the ball away sometimes seems impossible! Speed of mind, understanding of the rival’s weakness and exquisite touch count far more than physical strength and power. Outmanoeuvring your opponent is far more effective than trying to out hit them.
Currently, touchtennis has a huge following amongst experienced tennis players, some of whom have played professional tennis on the senior tour. However, the skill level required combined with the simplicity of the various formats of play, make it great fun to play at any age and brilliant for beginners and less experienced tennis players. The short history of the sport is proving very successful.
