Take the fun and fast-paced sport of tennis, add some sun and sand by the beach or golf course, and you have beach tennis, the most electrifying new sport to hit the U.S.

"Beach tennis merges the worlds of tennis and beach volleyball into one exciting sport. It can be played both competitively and recreationally, and because it's so simple to play, it appeals to athletes and non-athletes of all ages," says Richard Centerbar, Director of Tennis at Boca Grove.

What exactly is beach tennis? It's played just like regular tennis, except it's played on a regulation beach volleyball court. Using special beach tennis paddles, two players on each team volley back and forth, hitting a slightly depressurized tennis ball directly over the net without letting it bounce because, well, it's hard to make the ball bounce on sand! One hit per team is all that's allowed.

Fortunately for Boca grove members, the club has become the first in the area to offer beach tennis courts. So, what are you waiting for? Beach tennis is out there on the sand, waiting for you to try it out and, like us, become instantly hooked!

It's your serve.
