Intrigued by taking up a tennis racquet, but feel a bit out of your league? Not sure it’s worth the time and energy to learn? Think it’s just for the fit or the young or the ambitious? Think again! Take a look at our Top 5 Reasons for Playing Tennis!
5. It’s an excellent workout for both your heart and your brain.
Not only is tennis a pleasurable way to get in a cardio session, but it gives your brain a workout as well. All that strategy, planning and technique improvement? Yup, it’s a thinking sport.
4. It’s a great way to make new friends.
Many tennis partners become good friends. One of our club members recently moved here from the Midwest. She knew no one in this area. Because of tennis, she now has a new network of friends both on the court and off the court.
3. It’s a family sport.
Grandparents, parents and children can all play together. It is not unusual to see families playing doubles, especially during the holiday season.
2. It’s a sport that you can play forever.
Many of our tennis players are in their 60’s and 70’s. My oldest, and one of my dearest students, played until she was 90!
1. It’s fun!
It reminds me of being a kid again, out in the playground at recess. Tennis is a great stress reliever!
