During the 12th century, the Britishers were used to hit the ball using the palm and they used the wall as part of the court. Later, the Polish men played with the help of wooden rackets. In the early 19th century, the British selected certain croquet (sport) lawns to be used for tennis for playing and formed the National Tennis Association bringing many players from different nations to take part in the tournaments. Finally the sport became popular and was included at the Athens Olympics in 1896.
