Its interesting how the royal game of tennis was initiated by a small group of monks, but it did. The monks started the game as a form of recreation during the religious ceremonies and it soon gained popularity in several parts of Europe. Between 16th and 18th century, the French Royals adopted the game and christened it 'Jeu de Paumme' which means the game of the palm. The sport got its real name from a French word "Tenez", which was a term that meant the commencement of the play during those times.
In the later 18th century, the sport broke the continental barriers and reached the American and Asian lands. It's popularity grew manifolds in USA, Canada, Russia, China and India. Initially, the Croquet courts were used to play tennis, which later modified and took the current form.
