The confusion over some of these terms reflects the worldwide use of English and regional developments in the language, and also the recent rapid development and range of sports-specific shoes. In general, sneakers, tennis shoes and trainers are all just types of athletic shoe.
One confusion arises from the use of the words 'tennis shoes' to mean any type of athletic shoes, particularly in the US. This can be a recipe for sprained ankles and other foot and knee related injuries, because 'real' tennis shoes, (ie for playing tennis), have extra support and cushioning to allow for the sudden lateral movements common in the game.
The word 'sneaker' was first used in the US to describe a shoe similar in construction to the English Plimsoll, which was an indoor athletic shoe with a rubber sole. The design allowed the wearer to 'sneak up' on people, hence the development of the name. The range and styles of modern day sneakers are now enormous, as you can see from this page, but they all have their roots in the simple rubber-soled original.
The British word 'trainers', developed as a shortened version of the words 'training shoes', but like 'sneakers'. the term now covers a large variety of shoes, from proper sports shoes to their more decorative cousins, designed more for display and light activities.
