New to Tennis?
Get started in a lifetime sport.
Among adolescents who play tennis, 48% reported an average grade of A in school, outpacing athletes in other sports by 8-15% and non athletes by 23%
For the health of it
Studies show that those who play tennis have stronger bones, better cardiovascular health, and continued brain development.
Tennis outperforms many other sports in the development of positive personality characteristics, like sociability, spontaneity and focus.
Whether it’s self-discipline, problem solving, teamwork, or how to deal with and overcome mistakes, tennis teaches valuable lessons that can be carried over into all aspects of life.
For the friendships
The friendships you make playing tennis are strong. You’re bound to meet like-minded people seeking to improve their health and challenge themselves every time they step on the court. Tennis friendships make you better.
Tennis players score higher in vigor, optimism, and self-esteem and lower in anger, confusion, depression, tension, and anxiety than other athletes and non-athletes.
