The history and development of tennis – the favorite sport in the UK (Part 1)

Have you ever wondered where tennis came from and who was the first player? You want to know how this tennis has evolved through its stages. Here is all knowledge about tennis that is loved by millions of people around the world.

1. The origin of the famous tennis game

Ancient origin

If you learn about tennis, you will discover that ball games have been played since ancient times with the first depictions that can be found on the Egyptian temple inscriptions. from 1500 BC. It is said that the ball game formed part of the religious rites of the ancient Egyptians.

They were Christian monks, influenced by the Moors’ religious customs, who would be the first Europeans to play the raw form of tennis. In the first version of this game, called “La Soule”, the players hit the ball against each other either with bare hands or using a club. The game became popular in monasteries across Europe, to the point where the Church even planned to ban the game.

The development history of tennis

This was the first form of the game, in which the ball was usually hit against the walls of a courtyard, soon starting to be played outside the monasteries, with it further developing in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Soon, they discovered that they could control the ball better with just their hands, which soon led to the creation of a leather glove. It was not long before the glove started being attached to a wooden handle, thus creating the first tennis racket.

The balls undergo some screening, which changes from solid wood to bran stuffed into the skin. The game quickly became very popular, especially in France, where it was brought up by royalty.

The development of tennis

Tennis is different from the games played today. Players earn points the way they play the ball off the room walls. Another way in which polish differs from today’s game is a system of chases used.

In the game tennis nowadays, the ball is considered dead if it is bounced twice. However, in ancient Tennis, the point where the ball would bounce the second time would be marked with a marker, called the chase. Hence, a player who scores fewer points can win the game using more chasing skills.

Car racing

What will happen to the major car racing events of 2020?

Silverstone is set to host two grand behind closed doors in August. This is a part of the condensed Formula 1 season calendar in 2020. The British Travel Car Championship is geared towards organizing a schedule. It includes 27 races to start at Donington Park on August 2.

The season finals will take place at the Blooming Brand on November 15. The GT Championship is also looking forward to starting on August 2 with an event at Oulton Park. The Goodwood Festival of Speed, Wales Rally GB (UK World Cup race), and the historic Silverstone Classic and Goodwood Revival race meetings are among the canceled events.

Formula E leads the way in electric vehicle fees

Both McLaren and Williams have been partners in the most important motorsport development of the past decade. The UK-based Formula E has led the way in electrification.

Already in its sixth season, the one-seat car series is already ahead of the evolution of technology that all major carmakers are now pledging. And again, the white heat of competition has accelerated the pace.

The third generation of the upcoming Formula E car, introduced in 2022, will represent a significant change in performance. From 268bhp of the ‘Gen 1, racer, initially, 460bhp is now in range, while the weight has always dropped from over 900kg to just 780kg, as the battery has reduced in size and increased capacity.

Formula E also pioneered fast charging, including 30-second pit-up stops. All this in just six years. It is no surprise that Mercedes and Porsche have joined Audi, BMW, DS, Jaguar, Mahindra, Nio, and Nissan in a formidable F1 lineup.

How the racing club will return

Racing finally started again on July 4, with 12 events taking place over the weekend, starting with an English Motor Racing Club event at Castle Combe. Motorsport UK will limit the number of event licenses to 50% of 2019.

All event organizers will be required to meet new security protocols. They will come with social dispersion measures, providing issue PPE when needed. Also, most of the paper work before the event is done online.


The base that keeps the racing sport in the world grounded

Previously, engineers could download what a car had to say to them only when it was pockmarked; Nowadays, more and more advanced wireless technology allows them to get a gigabyte of data from a car on the track in five seconds.

It is then capable of processing to digest 350 terabytes of data each year, provided for applications used, for example, by Daimler’s research and development engineers working on road cars of Mercedes in Germany.

In addition, there are production technologies, including automation, that can be replicated from the professional needs of racing production for use in other industries. Dropping into a road car may not always be clear, but it is more durable than ever – and the transfer of technology is far beyond the automotive world.

Cutting-edge technology activities in racing sport

It is no coincidence that well-established F1 teams such as McLaren and Williams have diversified with cutting-edge technology activities that are increasingly playing a leadership role in their general businesses.

The continued belief, longevity, and relative simplicity of the good old internal combustion engine mean that amateur sport is still very much in store.

It is like a lot of different, different things, Chambers said. People look back on scenes tinted with roses up to 50 years ago, but the truth is that people are still spending a considerable amount of money, even on the racing club.

There is no question about having certain costs associated with improved safety, but few would argue that Donkey is a bad thing. It is extremely safer than before, with a factor of about 100 to one. If you choose racing subjects now, you can still compete in the same way you did 20, 30, 40 years ago. There are many interesting things you can do with an old car if you choose wisely.

The pandemic will leave a lasting and painful mark on the British racing sport. But the deep roots of the industry, and the resilience of individuals and companies born from wartime adversity, will bode well for recovery once a new normal form is established. That Dunkirk Spirit really is not a cliché.

But there are increased threats to the established sports car hierarchy that will test the resilience of the British industry more than ever since the war. The directity of the current pandemic is too realistic – and who knows the long-term change and damage will leave in every aspect of our society.

Then, in the long run, there’s an existential challenge of climate change that is forcing carmakers to pass increasingly tougher laws of governments around the world, to reassess everything they understand, believe, and do.

The Volkswagen Group has announced its intention to invest in the electrified sport only.

What has motorsport industry done for the UK?

Relevance to the real world and the cars we drive every day is key. But that’s a far different pressure. Some say motorsport always has the answer to that challenge – Jaguar. The development of disc brakes on C-Type and D-Type in the 1950s is a typical example.

However, there is also an argument that motorsport has helped the UK adapted to new technologies.

High-end motorsport has been allowed to be disrupted by the spending battle created by such smart technology. And the rally – certainly the racing sport code best suited to road car technology. It is still trending, with its hybrid era not starting until 2022. But now, in the end, the motorsport community has been properly addressing this threat.

Aylett quickly stepped on the fold. Over the past few years, primarily driven by engine suppliers for F1 racing and other large lines, racing has improved the thermal efficiency of internal combustion engines from 30% of a regular road vehicle to more than 50% today, he said.

Thermal efficiency really shows how much power the engine generates per 100kg of fuel. At 30%, you’ve wasted 70% of your energy, so getting your first for more than 50%, in 2017/18, is an important milestone for future hybrids that will be needed for all of us in the next decade.

Want a prime example of the UK’s arrival? Mercedes-AMG F1. For all of Germany’s industrial-strength, Daimler chose not just one but two small towns in Central England to tackle the six-time championship super development team and associated technology development center.

That’s the investment benefit from a complex and professional network of suppliers, as well as from the UK’s international workforce and horticultural workforce – many of whom have been trained at UK universities. Like all success stories, the British racing industry is built on the shoulders of the people who control it.

The initial surge of technology that has erupted from the war has accelerated since the 1960s because of the increasingly recognized commercial potential in motorsport. Hugh TV has become a core catalyst in changing the role of sport in society, he said, Hugh Chambers, CEO of the governing body Motorsport UK.

Sports broadcasters

What is especially appealing to broadcasters is that sport is very appealing that people want to go back and watch it many times. Producing sitcoms or quiz shows, and it’s hard to predict which one will stick. As the TV expanded, bidding battles for power increased and money began to flow into the sport.

What Bernie Ecclestone has done with Formula 1 is a great job to make money from scratch. Okay, it doesn’t go directly to the grassroots, because there isn’t any significant commercialization beyond a certain national level, but it flows through certain aspects of infrastructure.

And I would say that technology has benefited from the commercial nature of this sport. The automotive industry, fueled by commercialism, has created an extraordinary infrastructure for medium and small businesses. They can then produce high-quality machinery and components, which are then available to the entire industry.

Chambers also allocates growth to increase the carmaker’s interest in motorsport. Of course, it was always there: winning on Sunday, selling on Monday, was a factor from the early days of the car because Chambers knew only too well.

His father, Marcus, was an important figure in the development of motorsport in this country, as the owner of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) competition. Television-based commercialism only motivates carmakers to invest more in the sport, whether it’s racing, saloon, motorsport, or eventually F1.

The automotive industry is rooted in war and the inherent resilience that has provided hope for prosperity after the pandemic.

Did you find that, in the first weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, the stories of British motorsport companies have shifted their expertise to sudden and overwhelming medical needs? The answer has made the industry proud, but it’s hardly a surprise.

Engineers are the first to go into crisis, because by definition, they love to challenge quick, efficient, and practical solutions, and some of the 25,000 most creative and most creative people in the UK is one of 25,000 people working in the racing business.

Adapting under intense pressure and making important decisions based on scientific logic? That’s what they do, day in and day out, in workshops, oars, tunnels and service parks gather around the world.

The Covid-19 pandemic challenges

It’s easy to doubt Dunkirk’s call to arouse spirit. However, given the Covid-19 challenges, it can understand its inspiration in the darkest hours.

In motorsport, there’s an old analog of comparing the heat of competition with war, especially about the development of new technology – but it’s just a cliché word because it carries more than a grain of truth. Drawing a line from today, the highly developed Formula 1 team – seven of which are based in the UK – and it runs directly back to World War II.

Engineers then laid the foundations for British racing. It was necessary to react quickly to develop ideas for fighting and winning on land, sea, and air battles.

In aviation, war has created a lightweight, high-speed, aerodynamic competitive challenge. Therefore, engineers have developed new solutions for every day – and if that fails, everyone is dead.

Among those dead or alive needs came a generation after the outbreak of ideas. Some of them poured their energy into the emerging racing sport. In the late 1950s, people like Cooper and Lotus exploited the technologies born directly from the Battle of England to conquer the great race.

By the 1960s, the British revolution not only surpassed F1. However, even the Indianapolis 500 unilaterally was difficult – and the industry’s young shoots continued to blossom. Its roots run so deep and powerful that its 4,000 companies. This was from small experts, artisans to 1200 manufacturers owned F1 giants – exist here, unimpeded in the middle. The heart of the racing universe.


Manchester United is in the third place in the Premier League

Thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ penalty, Man Utd won Leicester 2-0 in the final round and won the Champions League ticket next season.

Bruno Fernandes skipped a free kick and scored a penalty in the second half

Lacking four pillars due to injuries and penalties, Ricardo Pereira, Ben Chilwell, James Maddison, Caglar Soyuncu, and Marc Albrighton have to suppress the pain, Leicester City chooses to counterattack in a counterattack in the 2019-2020 season. With 3-5-2, Brendan Rodgers wanted to lock in the middle and split two leading fuses, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

More than the first hour, the match went according to the scenario that Rodgers outlined. His team has little control of the ball, sometimes just over 35% but has more shots and more dangerous situations.

Man Utd received a penalty after Martial falls in Leicester area

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s teachers have many options to approach on the evening of July 26, because with just one point, they will certainly attend the Champions League next season. Even losing, “Red Devils” still have the opportunity to achieve goals if Chelsea stumble before Wolves, the team is also thirsty for the Europa League.

Entering the second half, Man Utd kept the regular kick and almost paid the price 15 minutes after the break. Youri Tielemans free kick brings the ball to Jamie Vardy’s position. In the back turn, the English striker headed backwards, took the ball into the far corner, then touched the crossbar. Three minutes later, Vardy was still in the second ball situation, but his volley went too high.

Leicester had a huge advantage over Chelsea and Man Utd in the top 4 race, but failed to maintain a high performance at the end of the season. At the speed of the French striker, Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans both came in to tackle, causing Martial to fall in the penalty area. After being confirmed by VAR, referee Martin Atkinson gave Man Utd a penalty, and Fernandes easily completed the task.

The tragic series of host crafts continued in the last minutes. In the fourth injury time, Jonny Evans receives a second yellow card. Four minutes later, goalkeeper Schmeichel lost the ball in front of the penalty area, giving the time for Lingard to make the score 2-0. Man Utd retain third place in the final, and Leicester must be satisfied with the Europa League qualification next season.


Wimbledon as the largest tennis tournament in the UK (Part 2)

The playing field in Wimbledon

Wimbledon has 19 yards, all of which are grass. This is the traditional pitch (tennis on the pitch) of the British. On the pitch the ball goes fast, bouncing low and uneven. Therefore it is usually adapted to players with a knack for serving and serving on the net (serve and volley).

The pitch is playing at Wimbledon

The only special case is Bjorn Borg. This is the previous tennis player from clay-court rarely hit the net. He won Wimbledon for 5 consecutive years (1976-1980).

Due to the weather in London or rain during the tournament. They decided to install a movable roof on the yard, which was completed in 2009. The original No. 1 stadium attached to the Central Stadium was rebuilt in 1997. Replaced with a new grandstand that has a larger capacity.

It is said that the original Stadium No. 1 has a very unique atmosphere, loved by many players. Therefore, changing it has upset many people. Stadium No. 1 is also a venue for some important matches such as the quarterfinals of the singles. There is a huge TV screen outside for people gathered on a tall lawn to watch.

The No. 2 pitch is dubbed the “Tombs of Champions” because many of the players in the class lost to lower-ranked players. The victims included Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras…

The boy and the girl pick up the ball

In matches at the tournament, the girls and the boy picked up the ball, also known as the BBG. They play an important role in helping the tournament go smoothly. Since 1947 the ball-gathering force has been provided by the Goldings School of the Barnardo’s charity.

Since 2005, the BBG teams are six people, two on either side of the net, four on the corners. The ball pick-up is paid a total of £ 120 to £ 180 per person after 13 days. This depends on the amount of time involved.

Each BBG is allowed to keep all the costumes. Usually includes three to four t-shirts, two or three shorts or a skort (skirt with inner shorts), tracksuit, 12 pairs of socks, 3 pairs of wristbands, 1 hat, a water bottle bag, a book bag, and shoes.

The first potential BBGs will be recommended by the school principal for consideration. Applicants who wish to be selected must pass the written examination of the tennis rules. Moreover, they must pass the ki post


Wimbledon as the largest tennis tournament in the UK (Part 1)

Wimbledon is one of four similar Grand Slams with the Australian Open, the French Open, and the US Open. This is the only major tournament on the pitch. Currently, legend Roger Federer is the player who holds the record 8 times of Wimbledon translation.

Time of the tournament

The tournament takes place in late June and early July lasting over 2 weeks. Worth mentioning is the focus of the most attention the women’s singles and men’s singles finals. It is held on Saturdays and Sundays in July.

Wimbledon is noted for its tradition of costumes. Besides, as well as not placing billboards around the yard. In 2009, the Wimbledon Central Stadium was fitted with a dragging dome to shield the rain and save time.

Wimbledon tournament history

Events of 1877

The first Wimbledon tennis tournament was opened on July 9, 1977. The men’s singles were the only content to be held and the winner was Spencer Gore. He is a former racket player of Harrow School, out of 22 players involved. At that time, about 200 guests paid each person a shilling to watch the final.

The courtyards are arranged in such a way that the center court is in the middle, so the main court is called the “Center Court”. The name remained the same when the club moved to its current location on Church Road in 1922 although it no longer has a central position.

The period from 1884

the tournament was supplemented with the women’s singles and men’s doubles events. Doubles and mixed doubles competitions were added in 1913. In 1922, only the final match against the best opponent in the outer ring would be played. Ever since Fred Perry won the men’s singles championship in 1936, Andy Murray was the next British in 2013 to win the title.

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom has never won a women’s singles since Virginia Wade in 1977, although Annabel Croft and Laura Robson won the women’s singles championships in 1984 and 2008 respectively.


Greenwood as a bright young star of Manchester United

Greenwood scored twice in the great victory of Man United. Those are 2 moments that have a clear impression of the star.

Another cannon with the left foot, and 25 minutes later another cannon with the right foot. Both finishes a goal by young player Mason Greenwood is perfect to every centimeter.

Many young players need a football season to prove themselves. However, Greenwood needs exactly two goals to score against Bournemouth to show fans how talented he is. Mason Greenwood had a great match against Bournemouth.

Greenwood scored the 8th goal in the Premier League this season at the age of 18. Taking the 18-year-old milestone as a measure, we need to know in Premier League history, only three players scored over 8 goals in a Premier League season. And all are legends.

They are Michael Owen (18 goals, 1997/98 season), Robbie Fowler (10 goals, 1993/94) and Wayne Rooney (9 goals, 2003/04). Looking at these three names, surely Man United fans in general and Greenwood boy in particular are full of hope for the bright future ahead.

However, this is still not the most impressive thing about Greenwood. Greenwood scored 8 goals in the Premier League this season after 31 finishes. If calculating the performance, he scored an average of 3.8 times to finish, he scored 1 goal.

To see how impressive this figure is, look at Greenwood’s teammates: Anthony Martial lost 4.6 times on average to score 1 goal, Marcus Rashford was 5.5 shots on time, and rookie Bruno Fernandes is also 5.5 times.

Greenwood is approaching the milestones that legends have ever reached

With a successful free-kick against Bournemouth, Bruno had 5 goals and 5 assists in 9 Premier League matches this season. Bruno became the 10-time milestone player in the fastest goal in Man United’s history, equal to the achievements of two legends Eric Cantona and Robin van Persie.

Greenwood is the player who owns the fastest speed in the Premier League this season. With so many strong points such as the skill of finishing with both legs, inherent confidence, the speed of sorrow, Greenwood – the youngest 231 player from the training academy of Man United to go straight to the first team – is in hand a bright future. He will be the future of Man United and the whole of England.
