A related question would be why tennis is universally loved by all rich people.
I don't know of a single upper class wealthy snob who has never played
tennis before.
It was not until the arrival of public tennis courts, that ordinary working class
peasants were able to play this sport.
At least tennis is not a socialist working class sport like badminton
or handball, but I also do not like its exclusive nature and snob heritage.
Public golf courses can cost $35 for greens fees (not including carts, which can cost another $15).

Until public tennis courts start charging an equivalent amount of money, I will never regard tennis as a "snob sport".
