The difference of playing tennis indoors and outdoors is the speed, bounce of tennis balls, and weather conditions. Indoor tennis is more comfortable and faster paced. Outdoor tennis is slower and subject to many variables such as wind, heat, the positioning of the sun, and an increased risk of fatigue and heat related illness.
With indoor tennis, you don’t have to deal with the wind or sun. Courts are flat and smooth with no cracks – a perfect environment to make it just about the competitors. Outdoors is so much different. The ball speed is slower due to the ball picking up dirt and moisture. Wind plays a big part, as well as temperature.

Tennis was ranked as the sixth most popular sport in the UK in 2015 in terms of the number of people who play at least once a week. It followed swimming, athletics, cycling, football and golf. The sport is popular and can be played both outdoors and inside on a range of different surfaces. The interesting thing about tennis is that the game is remarkably different depending on the surface and whether it is played indoors or outside.
As the warm weather approaches, many tennis players will take their game from the indoor courts to the outdoor surfaces. After playing indoors for consecutive months, it is easy to get acclimated to the indoor conditions.
Moving from outdoor tennis to indoor tennis should be easier compared to going from indoor to outdoor. The climate and temperature are stabilized, and the spot you hit the ball is usually where it goes since the elements and conditions won’t be moving it around. There will be no need for you to plan for a cross-wind!

An advantage is that it's easier to find space to play outside - even a small garden should provide plenty of room. When it comes to pro competition, however, table tennis is an indoor sport.
