Last Updated: 
Fri, 27 Jul 2018

The word "tennis" comes from the French word "tenez" meaning to hold or to keep. Early French players were known to start a game by yelling "tenez!" The English soon morphed this into "tennis".

There are two Tennis and Squash centres in the Chamonix valley: Richard Bozon Center in Chamonix Town and the Tennis des Iles in Argentiere.

It is recommended that you book ahead to ensure a slot on  the tennis courts, for contact information see below.
