About Us
At the end of the 19th century, tennis was introduced to Japan by a western missionary, and was later modified for the Asian physique. A special racquet and ball were developed and the game became known as Soft Tennis. In 1973, the International Soft Tennis Federation was established, with the first world championships following in 1975. Since then, the championships have been held every four years, with players from almost 65 countries taking part
