Beach tennis, a captivating hybrid of tennis and beach volleyball, has emerged as a favourite seaside pastime. Originating in Italy during the 1990s, this high-energy sport quickly gained popularity across shores worldwide. Played on sandy beaches, it combines the essence of tennis—volleys, serves, and strategic shots—with the relaxed, carefree ambiance of beach life.

Equipment needed for beach tennis

When stepping onto the sandy court for a beach tennis match, minimal gear is required:

  • Rackets: The pivotal piece of equipment in beach tennis is the racket, and whether you are an experienced player, or new to the game, you can find the racket you need on the All for Padel site. These specialized rackets are unique in design, typically featuring a carbon frame with a stretched membrane made of synthetic materials. They're shorter in length than traditional tennis rackets and boast perforated heads, designed to withstand sandy conditions while providing the necessary power and control. Take a look at our beach tennis rackets to find the one that suits you best. 

  • Balls: Beach tennis utilizes depressurized tennis balls, slightly heavier than traditional tennis balls, to withstand windy beach conditions. These balls have a slower bounce, making them easier to control on sand.

  • Bags: Whether you are an experienced player or not, an essential piece of equipment is a backpack so you can store your rackets and other items. At adidas, we have a wide selection of backpacks available for you.

  • Social Interaction and Enjoyment: Playing beach tennis promotes social interaction and a sense of community. Whether competing in matches or casually rallying with friends, the sport fosters camaraderie and enjoyment amid the scenic beach setting.
  • Mental Agility and Coordination: The fast-paced, dynamic nature of beach tennis demands quick decision-making, hand-eye coordination, and strategic thinking, contributing to mental agility and focus.

The emphasis on the racket's design in beach tennis is crucial, as it not only withstands the gritty environment but also facilitates the precise shots and swift movements integral to the game.
