How did the scoring system in tennis originate?
The world’s first tennis court is in Hampton Court in England. Henry the 8th played tennis, and that’s like 500 years ago. One time when someone was winning a point, someone asked Henry how many wives he would untimately like to have, he shouted 15 just as the first ;point was won. Then as the second point was being won someone asked him how many sons he would like, he shouted 15 at that exact moment. Finally as the third point was being won someone asked him how many inches was his manhood. Being an egotisical liar he shouted out 10. And so we have a score of 15 for the first and second points won, taking it to 30, and 10 for the next point taking it 40. As for the rest of it, pleased stay tuned, it’s too long to go into EDIT:- as for those quoting wikepaedia please just ignore the answers. I posted a lot of that stuff some time ago for a laugh. That’s the great thing about Wiki, jokers can put stuff on their and then everyone thinks is correct.
