Why play tennis?

Tennis is the sport for a lifetime!  A sport where you can meet people, make new friends, involve your family and connect with them for life – a sport that can be enjoyed at nearly any age and at any skill level!
Not only is it a total body workout but an effective way to promote healthy living!

There are many benefits to playing tennis such as physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Physical Benefits

  • Develops anaerobic fitness by offering short, intense bursts of activity during a point followed by rest, which helps muscles use oxygen efficiently.
  • Improves speed through a series of side-to-side and up and back sprints to chase the ball.
  • Improves focus.
  • Improves agility by forcing you to change direction as many as 5 times in 10 seconds during a typical tennis point.

Mental Benefits

  • Playing tennis will exercise the brain through problem solving. It requires alertness and strategic thinking when anticipating your opponent’s next move and planning yours.
  •  Playing tennis will increase motivation.  Regular practices will aid you to stay on track and do what is right for the game. Self-discipline also carries to other aspects of your life such as improved academic performance.

Emotional Benefits

  • Tennis develops a work ethic because improvement through lessons or practice reinforces the value of hard work.
  • Combats depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension.
  • Develops social skills through interaction and communication before a match, while changing sides of the court and after play.
  • Students learn to solve problems since tennis is a sport based on angles, geometry, and physics.
