Tennis has been around for hundreds of years, and for good reason. It’s an active sport that can be played all year, is both a team and solo sport, fun for families, and almost anyone can play the sport at a leisurely level. And that’s not all, there are many health benefits to playing tennis. Take it from the team here at Sea Gardens Beach and Tennis Resort, and give the game a shot to stay active and in shape.
If weight loss is your goal, then tennis is an excellent option. It is a great aerobic activity with a low barrier of entry, meaning it doesn’t have to be super intense to get started. The more tennis you play, and the more intense your matches become, the more calories you can burn. On average, you’ll burn a few hundred calories per hour of tennis played. Couple that with a healthy diet and you’re good to go!
More Vitamin D
While tennis can be played indoors, most tennis matches take place out in the sun. Especially here in Pompano Beach. Head out to the court and soak up the sun, and, in turn, vitamin D. Vitamin D helps with your immune system and heart health, and can reduce the risk of cancer. Just be sure to wear sunscreen!
Balance is essential in tennis. The game has you moving in multiple directions, mostly on the balls of your feet. This is especially true when you have to stretch way out to save a point. Over time, you’ll gain more control over your footwork, strengthen your legs, and help your body maintain a sturdier equilibrium.
