Tennis players use rackets to hit a tennis ball over a net in an effort to score points.
Points are scored when the tennis ball drops within the boundary of the opposing
court and cannot be returned. The first player to win four points wins the game. A
game must be won by a margin of two points. When a player wins at least six games
by two or more games, he or she wins a set. In most youth tournaments, the player
winning two out of three sets wins the tennis match.
