Tennis powerhouses like Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova make it difficult to believe that tennis was originally a man's sport. Since the early twentieth century, however, girls and women of all ages and skill levels have secured a permanent place on the tennis court. After discussing the history of women in the sport and the importance of Title IX, this exciting primer describes the rules, equipment, and skills required to play. Readers will learn how to grip, volley, and swing their way to an invigorating match. Profiles of key players, past and present, will interest tennis novices and pros alike.
