Why Tennis?


As a form of exercise, tennis provides several physical benefits for our bodies. Studies show that those who play tennis regularly have stronger bones, better cardiovascular health, and continued brain development.


Not only does tennis have a positive effect on our bodies, but it also provides benefits for our minds by impacting our cognitive and emotional states. Studies show that tennis players demonstrate higher levels of vigor, optimism, and self-esteem and lower levels of depression and anxiety, confusion, and stress than other athletes and non-athletes.  Additionally, tennis outperforms many other sports in the area of developing positive personality characteristics like sociability, spontaneity and focus.
