When it comes to sports, tennis isn’t typically the sport that comes to mind. With constant hype about hockey, football, basketball and baseball, we forget about the tennis courts in our neighborhood. Tennis is definitely a physical activity you should be participating in on a weekly basis.
You Can Play Every Season
Where sports like football take place in just the fall, the cool thing about tennis is that it can be played throughout the entire year. This will help you maintain a healthy figure, and allow you to develop a routine for the next 365 days.
You Can Choose The Match
Competing with friends is always one of the greatest parts of playing a sport. In tennis, you have the choice to either play a single match with one competitor, or play doubles with a teammate while going against an opposing team of two.
#3: You Can Play at Low-Cost
Most sports cost ridiculous amounts of money for equipment. In tennis, all you need is a racket, —which is cheap—, some active-wear, and occasionally a set of balls. Tennis courts are usually accessed for free too, which is convenient.
You Get The Best Exercise
Like almost every other sport, you get a desirable amount of exercise. With the awesome cardio combination of running, aerobics and hand-eye coordination, playing a few matches of tennis works the right parts of your body. At the end of a match, you’ll be out of breath from constantly sprinting back and forth on the court.
You’ll Make New Friends
You can never have enough friends, and there’s no better way to make some new ones, than by participating in tennis. You guys can get your daily exercise fix, while playing a close match.
You Keep Your Brain Healthy
Tennis is a sport that revolves around strategy. Throughout each match, your mind will constantly be in thought about what kind of shots you should make and what move your opponent will make next.
You Can Be Any Age
Tennis stands out from other sports because it doesn’t have a limitation on age. Whether you’re a child or a senior citizen, tennis is enjoyed and played by all. It’s also known as “the family sport”, a bonding activity that allows you all to stay active, while spending time together.
