The way of counting points in tennis comes from the "jeu de Paume": This French game, played in the 16th and 17th centuries, is the ancestor of tennis created by the English in the 19th century ("tennis" is also the deformation of French word "hold !", pronounced by the player throwing the ball).
In the "jeu de Paume", it is assumed that the winner of the point had to advance each time 15 steps in the direction of the net (15, 30, 45 or 60 paces from the service line), and the one who reached the net, located at 60 steps, won the game. The number 40 would be a shortcut to 45, too long to pronounce.
When the players were tied at 40, the advantage was to take 5 more steps.
To discover in Ansousis: The Castle, historic site, the former home of the Monument Sabran Pontevès family, originally a classical fortress, transformations (twelfth, thirteenth centuries) and numerous additions (XVII) with the elegant southern façade, will soften the rigor of the building. The groves, gardens and terraces that surround the castle of greenery to the charm of the site. The Church, which consists of a nave of three bays and a vaulted cross spaceship broken barrel. The ship, which completes a square apse flanked by two chapels, one convicted and the other turned into sacristy is perhaps a remnant of a previous building: it is noted there are many brands of jobbers (absent the nave) and various sculptural elements, gaskets and transoms decorated with geometric and plant motifs pellets extras human or animal heads, apparently reused in construction. The presence of the boundary wall has imposed a significant level of distortion between the choir (transverse vessel and apse) and the nave which probably replaced a previous smaller nave, not leaning against the walls.
