Modern tennis can trace its roots to a variety of games, centuries ago, but, most notably, the French game, "Jeu de Paume" (i.e., "Game of Palm"). The modern game of tennis started around the late 1800's in Britain, and evolved into the game as it is, today. For further information, refer to the Wikipedia link, below. Tennis is played in virtually every country and island nation.
