Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Play Tennis Day.

On this day in 1874, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield patented his game of 'Sphairistike', which later became known as lawn tennis.

He had demonstrated the new game to friends on the lawn of a house at Nantclwyd, Wales, during a Christmas party two months earlier.

Though it is not the right season in the northern hemisphere to play lawn tennis, it is still a good reason to encourage the adoption of this popular sport.
