MISSION TWO: RACQUET AND PADDLE SPORTS

THIS MISSION IS WORTH: 400 STAR COINS
MISSION PROGRESS 29%

ABOUT THE MISSION:   Sports involving rackets and paddles have been around for centuries.  Some say tennis was invented by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Although there is no archaeological evidence, there are some words — Tinnis, an Egyptian city along the Nile, and “rahat,” an Arabic word for palm or hand that may be related to “racket” — that could be a link.  “Cat gut” is what some people think tennis rackets are made of.  In this mission, help Wilbur discover what sports around the world involve paddles and rackets.
