Want to Live Longer? Play Tennis!
Want to live longer? Play tennis!!
A recent study has shown that people who play tennis live longer than any other sport…an extra 9.7 years of life. Why? Because you are exercising but more importantly you’re doing it with other people. So come play tennis on our beautiful well lit, indoor courts…it’s a fantastic sport that you can play your entire life. Benefits include:
- great exercise, improving both strength and endurance
- good stress relief, who doesn’t like hitting a ball
- it’s a social sport where you can meet new people
- you can play at almost every age
- and it’s FUN!
Scientists who studied tennis players over a long period of time were surprised by the results! They said that sports that require 2 or more people and involve social interaction will help with longevity. Just belonging to a group that meets regularly can leave players feeling trust, support, and a common liking that contributes to a sense of well- being.
Another attribute in tennis that could lead to a longer life is the type of exercise you are doing. Short bursts of energy instead of slow, steady exercise can be more advantageous in the long run.
Never played tennis before? Looking to improve your game?
No worries. TCR has adult group clinics available throughout the week, including beginner-specific ones through intermediate. This way you can work on your strokes and strategies with other players of a similar level. Cardio tennis is another great alternative on Wednesday nights and Friday mornings – it combines lots of hitting with a good aerobic workout. Private lessons are also an option for personal one-on-one attention. You can also come to our facility and pay to play with a friend!
