Here up north, you pretty much have to be at least upper middle class to play tennis year round. The court fees are $25 to $30 bucks per hour during the Winter. I imagine before the proliferation of public courts in this country, tennis was exclusive to the upper class. I think the fact that tennis is a non-contact sport that can be played at a leisurely pace appealed to the aristocracy. At least tennis is not as snobbish as golf. You won't get thrown out of a tennis club by wearing denim shorts a la Michael Jordan.
