I'm a junior in high school and I just joined the tennis team. I'm not much of a joiner so it took some courage to join. I took some tennis lessons when I was younger, so I thought I would be okay, but I guess I'm not. I was looking at some basic rules to refresh my memory and it's like another language! For example, with every serve is there a point awarded? And can you hit the ball into any part of your oponant's court? I was confused witht hat because the rules I was looking at said that even points are started at the deuce court and odds at the ad court. Could someone PLEASE help me? I need a simple overview of the rules so I don't look like a complete idiot!
