Tennis etiquette is about respect for the court, other players, and the rules of the game.

Two ways to demonstrate sportsmanship when playing tennis are:

1) Give encouragement to others.

2) Be ready when your opponent is going to serve.

    If you are lucky enough to be able to go to a local court with a backboard, then you can practice hitting against the wall using your forehand and/or backhand. Stand far enough away so that you allow the ball to bounce twice rather than once
