Is Tennis Good For You?

Of course it is, Tennis provides a total body workout by:

  • Strengthening your arms, back, abs, bottom and legs
  • Rallying, which is a good cardiovascular workout
  • Improving coordination/balance/speed/competitiveness
  • Working your glutes and inner and outer thighs as you become a better player

Tennis keeps your mind on the ball – it’s a mentally challenging game where speed and reaction are paramount.

Tennis gives you great bones. According to the National Osteoporosis Society, Tennis is an excellent exercise for your skeleton because it’s a weight-bearing exercise exerting a force that stretches and contracts the muscles, stimulating the bones they are attached to, to strengthen. Weight-bearing exercise is one of the most important ways that people can prevent osteoporosis.

Tennis can make you happy. Reach for the racket - exercise of all kinds can improve people’s moods. Ninety per cent of research has found that exercise has antidepressant effects.

Tennis is fantastic for kids’ development - improving co-ordination, balance, fitness, self-confidence, concentration, respect, communication skills, independence, intellectual stimulation and determination. Doesn’t always work on adults unfortunately.
