Outdoor Tennis And Sphairistikè

By the 18th century, the rubber ball made the game popular again, as it had the ability to be played outdoors on grass.

A version of the game called Sphairistikè was played in an hourglass-shaped court in London, creating a sensation in the whole of Europe in the year 1873. This later evolved into a rectangular court, with women not allowed until 1884.
