Tennis has held a place in South Africa since colonial times with the first ever South African Championships occurring at the end of the 19th Century. With a popular sport such as Tennis comes Tennis betting, if you are new to this concept hopefully this feature will fill you in.
History Of Tennis
What originated in Birmingham, England was fast spread across the globe due to British colonists in South Africa, and other countries. There has been a lot of change throughout the years of South African Tennis from changes in inclusion laws to the host venue of the Championship. At one point or another this tournament has been held near enough in every corner of the country until final settling at Ellis Park, Johannesburg.
Looking back now South Africans can be proud of their Tennis heritage and the players that this country has produced. Tennis is still hugely popular amongst South Africans with a number of events happening each year alongside numerous Grass roots and Semi-pro competitions that take place. The organisation of these many events are down to the TSA (Tennis South Africa), a non-profit organisation that promotes and supports Tennis in South Africa at all levels.
