For nearly 150 years, the game of tennis has been a very popular sport for individuals to play, whether at home or on vacation, for exercise or competition. Visitors to Belize are no exception, as it’s a great way to get exercise and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean sunshine, at least that’s what Bill Gates thought when he played tennis here on Ambergris Caye.
