You might have guessed by our name but, at Sea Gardens Beach and Tennis Resort, we know tennis and we’re passionate about the incredible benefits it brings to your life. Did you know that playing tennis for one hour burns around 600 calories? This makes tennis as effective as cycling or jogging—only tennis is much more fun, since your mind is engaged with the challenge of the game. So, whether you’ve never picked up a tennis racket in your life, or yours has collected some dust over the years, now is a great time to get into the game! Here are three ways that participating in tennis can improve your overall health, wellness, and happiness!

Health Benefits of Tennis


Tennis is a social sport. Whether you play singles or doubles, you’re always playing with at least one other person. Being able to socialize with opponents and partners is a huge benefit of the game because it is very physiologically rewarding to be around others who share similar interests and goals.

Exercise Your Brain

When you play tennis over the years, it can actually improve your brain function, including memory, behavior, and learning. This is great for children whose brains are learning to comprehend, as well as seniors who want to “stay sharp”. Tennis also helps regulate serotonin—a brain chemical linked to functions such as sleep cycle, appetite, and your emotional state. Having trouble sleeping or keeping your emotions in check? Hit the court!

Relieve Stress

We all have stresses in our lives—and tennis is a wonderful way to help combat that stress! The problem with simply going for a run or jumping on an elliptical trainer is that you still have the ability to let your mind dwell on everything you need to get done. When you play tennis, your mind is forced to focus on the task at hand instead of focusing on your stresses and endless to-do lists. Think of it as a little vacation for your brain!
