The Estonian Tennis Association was founded on 10 July 1922. The founding members were five associations: Estonian Lawn-Tennis Club, Tallinn Lawn Tennis and Hockey Club, Narva Lawn Tennis and Hockey Club, Tennis Department of the Estonian Sports Association Kalev, and the Tennis Department of the Tartu Academic Sports Club. The Estonian Tennis Association became a member of the International Tennis Federation in 1934. Before World War II, the tennis association had 18 tennis clubs and more than 1,500 players.
Today, the association has 70 member clubs. There are just over 100 indoor and 200 outdoor tennis courts in Estonia, where more than 10,000 enthusiasts play. The history of Estonian tennis is rich in great figures, from Toomas Leius, who was one of the best in the world in the 1960s, to Kaia Kanepi and Anett Kontaveit, who are currently one of the best players in the world.
