Aruba Beach Tennis International Championships

November 19 - 21, 2010

"Beach Tennis can be played both competitively and recreationally and because it's so simple to play, it appeals to athletes and non-athletes of all ages. It's like regular tennis except its played on a regulation beach volleyball court. Using paddle racquets, two players on each team volley back and forth, hitting a slightly depressurized tennis ball directly over the net without letting it bounce... it's hard to make the ball bounce on sand! One hit per team is all that is allowed.

Competitions will be held at Moomba Beach."
