The game of tennis has evolved over the centuries in terms of its equipment, attire, style of play and culture. From a humble beginning of using the palm of one’s hand to rackets made of the latest innovation in technology and material, tennis players throughout the ages had always held one thing in common – their love of the sport.
Today, tennis is played by millions of recreational players and has become a popular worldwide spectator sport. The evolution of the game is inextricably linked to changes in society – in particular, the realm of womankind. This exhibition aims to trace the history and evolution of tennis and highlight the women game-changers of the sport.
