To play tennis, you need a tennis court, a tennis racket for each player, and a tennis ball. If you are playing singles, one player stands on each side of the net, for doubles, two players are on each side of the net. Players hit the ball with the racket back and forth over the net.
If a player is standing on the baseline and looking at the net, the left side of the court is called the ad side.
Each player starts off on the deuce side (right side of the court) at the beginning of the game and alternates between deuce and ad (left side) every point, but every game always starts on the deuce side.

The first serve of each game will be from the deuce side (the right side if you are standing on the baseline) and the ball will be hit cross-court to the other player's deuce side. The next serve will be from the ad side (the left if you are standing on the baseline) and go cross-court to the other player's ad side. This alternation will continue until the game is finished and a new one starts or the match is over.
