Upper-class Sports

When we talk of upper-class sports, there might be a few different ones which come to mind. But, two of the most popular ones that we can think of are tennis and golf. Let’s take a look at both of these sport a little bit.

Tennis

Tennis is basically a racket sport which can be played by either two individuals or four individuals. All players must use the tennis racket to hit a rubber ball over a net into the court of the opponent. To win a point, a player must hit the ball in a way that the opponent cannot return it appropriately.

Tennis is a sport that is even played in the Olympics. It can be played by people of all ages. This sport can be played by anybody who can hold a racket really. The modern game as we know it today originated in England towards the end of the nineteenth century. The rules have changed a bit since then, but overall, they have remained pretty much the same.

Golf

Then we come to the sport of golf. Here, players use clubs of different sizes in order to hit balls into holes on courses in as few strokes as they can. Golf, unlike most games which have balls, doesn’t have a standard playing area. This game is played on courses with 18 holes. Every hole has a tee box where the play starts, and a putting green where the hole is. Terrain like fairway, rough, sand traps, water, fescue, rocks, etc. can be found between the two.

The aim of the game is to be the one with the lowest score at the end of the game. This isn’t like most other games, but that’s how golf separates itself from just about every other major sports game.
