The History of tennis game was developed from a  12th century French handball game called “Paume” (palm). In this game the ball was struck with the hand. After some time “Paume” game produced handball “Jeu de Paume (game of the palm) and there were used racquets. The game was first created by European monks for entertainment roles during ceremonial occasions. At first, the ball was hit with hands. Later, the leather glove came into existence. This leather glove was replaced with an adaptive handle for effective hitting and serving of the ball. That was a birth of tennis racquet.
