The purpose of this research was to examine the process of forming the tennis game subculture and its substance through diverse forms of interaction of each tennis club participant. In order to examine this, literature data connected with subculture and identity were collected and theoretical framework was arranged based on Coakley(1998)'s power & performance model and pleasure & participation model. The sample was drawn from 21 members of Gu-il tennis club in Joogong apartment, Myong-gu Dong, Gangseo Gu, Seoul, using typical case selection which is one method of criterion based selection. The data was collected using both in-depth interview and participation observation. This research used member check, peer debriefing, and triangulation to verify reliability and validity. On the basis of the result analysed, the conclusions were drawn as tennis club participants prefer to double game and volley style play. They also prefer to control to decrease unforced errors than increase wining shot which would happen to make error.
