Beach tennis is a variation on classic tennis and originated in Italy. Doubles matches take place on a 16 x 8 m sand court, while singles are played on a narrower 16 x 4.5 m court.
Beach tennis is not usually seen as a competitive sport. The national tennis associations are responsible for the rules.The game can be easily adapted to suit the abilities of the players, however at a more advanced level, the game is technically very challenging and a real thrill for spectators. To succeed in the game, players must master the art of using a paddle bat, have good reactions and be able to move quickly on sand.


CST has eight beach tennis courts and all the equipment required for running training sessions. Two courts are equipped with the special nets needed for matches.


The CST provides 160 sports facilities, including three triple gymnasia, a double gymnasium for artistic gymnastics, four multi-purpose halls, eight full-size football pitches, an open-air athletics complex and an indoor athletics complex, a 50m swimming pool and a diving pool, four fitness and weight-lifting rooms and a water sports centre.
