French Monks And The Palm Game
A version of modern tennis, played without racquets (using palms of the hand) by French monks was called jeu de paume, or the Game Of The Palm.
It was upgraded in the year 1500 ADE with wooden racquets, and balls made of leather and cork. The game became extremely popular in England where about 1800 indoor courts came up.
I get my inspiration from nature and objects around me.
