On any given day, on any flat road in Barbados, you’ll find chalk outlining a court, plywood standing in as a net, and a stripped tennis ball flying back and forth between two players. This is road tennis.

With an expanding roster of players who are determined to grow their sport, it may soon be played all over the world.
