Tennis has historically been called the sport for a lifetime. According to scientists from a variety of disciplines, tennis is still one of the best sports anyone can choose to play.

  1. People who participate in tennis three hours per week (at moderately vigorous intensity) cut their risk of death in half from any cause.
  2. Tennis players scored higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension than other athletes or non-athletes.
  3. Since tennis requires alertness and tactical thinking, it may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and thus promote a lifetime of continuous development of the brain.
  4. Tennis outperforms golf, inline skating and most other sports in developing positive personality characteristics.
  5. Competitive tennis burns more calories than aerobics, inline skating, or cycling, according to studies on caloric expenditures.
