One day in a town in the middle of Texas about 1860 lived a light hearted football player name Andre Yenson. His football season was over and he really didn't have anything to do after the season. He had pick up his football and threw it against the wall in his room , while he was doing it then he pick up a paddle and he was hitting the ball back and forth. Then he started to think about a court. Wait, he said to hisself a court a ball and a paddle could be played with up to four people hitting the ball back and forth. About another three years later, when Andre was 21 years old he created Tennis.
