 Tennis is a sport in which two or four players hit a ball back and forth using a tennis racket. The game takes place on a  tennis court. It is a firm rectangular surface with a low net stretched across the center. The same court can be used to play both doubles and singles.

How to Map

Draw the area area of every single tennis court and add leisure=pitch + sport=tennis. There is currently no consensus for if one should include the area outside of the markings (the clearance) as part of the area of the court in the mapped tennis court area.

Tennis courts are typically surrounded by a fenced area. Draw the way way of the fence around the court(s) and add barrier=fence. Add any entrances to the fenced area with barrier=gate and connect them to footpaths or other equivalent ways in the surrounding area.
