Why Tennis? Many parents may ask this.

Out of all the physical activities that kids could pick from, tennis is a step above the rest. One of the obvious benefits from this sport is the various types of physical activity that is performed. A child is still growing and the exercise that he or she does is a great way to build a stronger body. A child will be completing aerobic and anaerobic exercises, this will help maintain a high energy level which will assist with concentration in school. Another benefit is the child will be gaining leg strength along with gaining speed, and achieving overall body coordination. The strength a child will gain is going to help with puberty and building stronger bones that will help prevent osteoporosis in the future. Kid’s will build a stronger immunity, due to the intensity of tennis. Their resistance to disease will be higher than those kid’s who do not partake in tennis.

Another aspect is the psychological and mental area. A student will gain a sense of work ethic through practices outside of the class setting and learning the importance of hard work. The child will also learn what healthy competition is along with learning from mistakes, accepting the actions that he/she took during a match and learning how to recover. This sport really concentrates in the area of sportsmanship because it is a one-on-one sport. Another great skill that will be learnt is that of problem solving.
