Tennis is a racket sport played between two opponents or two teams consisting of two players each. Players use rackets to strike a felt-covered hollow ball over the net into the court of the opponent. The objective of the game is to keep the ball in continuous play until a player is unable to make a valid return. The point will then go to the opposite player.
