2008 saw the launch of the ITF Beach Tennis Tour, a new circuit of international events of the sport's fastest-growing offshoot.
The calendar consists of National Association sanctioned and/or organised tournaments worldwide, which offer international ranking points to participants. Players are ranked individually based on their results in doubles events only.
Tennis Europe's involvement with the ITF Beach Tennis Tour comes mainly in the form of the annual celebration of the European Beach Tennis Championships. First played in 2007 as a team event, the competition has grown exponentially each year and the competition regularly hosts well over 100 players at each edition.
Rules of Beach Tennis and Rules of the Beach Tennis Tour, together with application forms to stage ITF-approved Beach Tennis tournaments can all be found at the ITF's beach tennis weblet: www.itftennis.com/beachtennis
