Just like Arthur Wellesly popularised Cricket in Thalassery, European clubs popularised Tennis. Thalassery has several Tennis courts. Some of these courts were demolished for constructing government buildings. On one of the courts a fire station has come up and in another court a volleyball court has come up. Some of the well known tennis players of those years were Tata Mosa, P.V. Moosakeyi and Kunjupakki Keyi.
