Dating back to the late 1800s, the modern game of tennis as we know it has seen the countless volleying of hollow rubber balls by rackets strung with cord as it has developed over the years. Officially governed by the International Tennis Federation for over 80 years now, the game has grown from play on the lawns of great British estates to the international stage where it resides today.
In addition to its popularity, accentuated in the past two decades by players such as Roger Federer, the Williams twins and many others, it offers participants and fun and cardiovascular exercise, with more tennis courts across North America than ever before.
As a game traditionally played in the great outdoors, having the right equipment has been of paramount concern. With Mother Nature’s ability to cloak courts with rain, sunshine, heat, cold and snow at any given time, the netting used for the sport has been developed to both withstand the elements and the test of continued play.
