The ITF Beach Tennis World Tour Sand Series Classics 2023 are kicking off with their first stop in Réunion (FRA), on March 18th and 19th. Beach tennis is a rapidly-growing sport aiming to become the leading beach sport for professional and junior athletes worldwide. Since 2008, beach tennis has been part of the International Tennis Federation (ITF), helping to make the sport bigger. The sport is a combination of tennis, beach volleyball, and badminton. Beach tennis is a vibrant, engaging, and fast-paced sport. It is played using beach tennis paddles and a low compression Stage 2 'orange' tennis ball. The sand courts measure 16 x 8 meters, and the net is 1.7 meters high. The most common form of competition is played in doubles. Over the weekend, 64 teams of 16 different nations, men and women combined tough it out under the scorching southern hemisphere sun.
