Best Answer

Tennis is one of the oldest of all racquet sports.

During the Tudor times it was played indoors in a large room with a net. Like tennis today, players had to hit the ball over the net. However, in the Tudor times, the ball could also be bounced off the walls and points were also scored by hitting the ball into one of three goals high in the walls.

Tudor tennis rackets were made of wood and strung with sheep gut. The leather tennis balls were filled with hair.

Some of the more wealthy men played a form of tennis. Hunting was also very popular. Hope this helps! They played backgrammon and draughts. Tennis was played with a ball stuffed with hair. A form of shot putting was played called 'casting the bar'. Wrestling and a rough version of football were played - there were very few rules so injuries were common. Jousting.

Definitely. Although the game was very different to the Football played today. Their was no maximum number of players on each teams- and sometimes whole villages played against each other in HUGE matches. Football did actually get banned in 1540 because of the injuries from the game! The Game was though of as a pastime for the poor. Hope this helped!

Henry VIII was bored from composing music. He invented a game where you his a conker (a wooden ball) over a net with a big stick. He called it "Tenes" which gives us "Tennis"
