Where fun and fitness meet
An all-over workout burning an average 498 calories an hour, tennis is where fun and fitness meet. There's also no better activity to help you achieve core strength, a flat stomach, flexibility and heart health.
We all know that working up a sweat relieves tension, but tennis sharpens the mind as it shapes the body. Every time a ball is hit, you must react and respond quickly, and if you're going to be successful, you must also map out a strategy for every opponent. This helps keep your brain agile and young.
Whether you play with your best friend once a week, in a weekend league or with your family, tennis provides a time-efficient, enjoyable way to get in shape and keep up with the people in your life and community.
