Wordle #312

Today is World Tennis Day. Tennis began in France as “game of the palm.” In the 12th and 13th centuries it was a game played indoors, against a wall, more like what we know as handball. In the 16th century rackets were invented and it became known as “tennis.” Then invention of the lawnmower brought us “lawn tennis,” and our current courts.

It occurred to me how many of tennis terms can be used in other contexts. The following words are all tennis related, however, don’t limit yourself to that game!

love
racket
court
double/s
game
official
point
backhand
score
single
string
fault
