Why Tennisletics?

Sometimes we get asked where did the name Tennisletics come from?

Well, the inspiration came from history. Tennis origins lay in the 12th century with jeu de paume (‘game of the palm’). Today, tennis is an Olympic sport played at all levels of society and at all ages. The word ‘Athletics’ is derived from the Greek word ‘athlos’ (ἄθλος), meaning ‘contest’ or ‘task’ and encompasses human competitive sports requiring physical skill and training that prepare ‘athletes’ for competitive performance.

So, we combined ‘Tennis’ and ‘Athletics’ to create ‘Tennisletics’, a vibrant start-up that seeks to inform, inspire, innovate, and deliver a positive impact on all ages and abilities through the sports of tennis and pickleball. Learn more
