...
The size of the court being the same to that of normal tennis ones, the soft tennis matches will be played out at the JSC Tennis Courts!
...
The usage of the soft balls make sure the players are not emptied of their energies so much during the match as it's comparatively an easier and simpler version of tennis.  
...
The racquet used is a smaller and lighter version of those used in tennis whilst there are soft rubber balls used instead of the harder ones used in lawn tennis. 
...
Soft tennis is basically like tennis but the catch lies in the ball used and the racquet employed in the sport. 
...
With the high success in the tennis events as Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan claimed gold for themselves in the Men's Doubles as Ankita Raina created history by winning bronze, can soft tennis also see a similar outcome?
