Beach Tennis was probably developed by a team of marketers wired on Redbull: it is a lot like table-tennis, but instead of a table you have a beach that you stand on, and a big paddleball racket that you use to hit a tennis ball over a badminton net. They first considered “Swamp tennis” but soon discarded it as soon as they realized that anything with “Beach” sells better.
What’s best is that private lessons are very affordable (R$60 per hour) and one hour is enough to get you going.
