Walking Tennis 2 (WT2) offers a great opportunity to learn tennis skills, build physical fitness and meet new people. WT2 is played on a full-size tennis court but with a few simple changes to the rules enables the game of tennis to be much more accessible.
There is no difference in terms of court dimensions and markings between the Walking Tennis and the traditional game. Therefore singles is played within the singles court and doubles is played within the doubles court.
Walking Tennis 1 allows the OPTION of a second bounce. However, unlike Walking Tennis 1 the second bounce must land within the designated court markings for the format you are playing (so singles lines for singles and doubles lines for doubles). However, there is one exception to this and this is WHEN SERVING IN SINGLES when serving in singles the second bounce IS permitted to land in the tramlines (same as doubles).
When playing Walking Tennis BOTH feet are not allowed to leave the ground at the same time, so no running or jumping permitted.
Walking Tennis 2 is played using full-size rackets and ORANGE tennis balls.
Walking Tennis 2 is played on using traditional scoring but to prevent matches lasting too long we do encourage the use of sudden death deuces.
