Free Tennis Clipart
The modern game of tennis originated in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century and was known as "lawn tennis".
Originally, tennis rackets were made of wood and the strings came from animal gut. The wood rackets gave way to laminated wood construction which yielded more strength and power. Later, rackets were made out of metal, then carbon graphite and later, lighter metals such as titanium. These stronger materials led to the production of oversized rackets that yielded even more power. Technology led to the use of synthetic strings that replaced the use of gut and also added durability.
Tennis balls are hollow rubber balls with a felt coating. They were changed over the years from the usual white to optic yellow to improve visibility.
Personally, the funniest thing I ever saw on a tennis court didn't even happen during a match. A friend of mine wanted to practice with a ball machine on an indoor court. He asked me to start the machine, which I did. After a couple of shots, he got bored and asked why I set it on such a wimpy speed. He went over and to the control on the wall and turned it all the way up. The next ball came out at what seemed like 200 MPH, as did the next 20 or so, spraying balls all over the place. All we could do was duck for cover until the machine ran out of balls. Lesson learned.
