My website is moving!

GeoCities will close on 26th October 2009, so I will be moving this page to my new website (when I have thoroughly checked and edited it):

http://abroad.sqweebs.com/tennis/

Please update your links and bookmarks ASAP, because there will be no redirection after 26th October.


Tennis is a game that involves two players hitting a ball over a net using rackets. The idea is to hit the ball so that it bounces twice without your opponent touching it, without hitting it out of the court or into the net. As simple as it sounds, the game is amazingly addictive, and when played by players of the highest calibre, it becomes a fine art-form of power, accuracy, style and finesse in an unbelievable atmosphere of tension and excitement.
            No other sport enables its players to express themselves as richly as they can by hitting a small yellow ball to construct amazing, intricate and unique rallies. (Table-tennis comes closest, and can be more fun to play than tennis, but professional table-tennis is too fast and furious to appreciate on the same level, plus tennis allows volleying, which you cannot do in table-tennis.)
