WHAT IS TENNIS?
Being one of the most popular individual sports, tennis is played all over the world. Tennis can either be played by singles (one vs one) or doubles (two vs two). Each player uses a racquet to hit a tennis ball over a net into the opponent’s side of the court. There are three different types of tennis courts available to play on, hardcourt, clay and grass, and each surface gives a different type of play.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF TENNIS
Playing tennis can be a great way to work out as well as being lots of fun. Playing tennis can increase your aerobic capacities, lower your resting heart rate and blood pressure, improve metabolic function, lower your body fat and also improve your strength and flexibility.
COMMON INJURIES IN TENNIS
There are common injuries that are associated with tennis, including tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, which causes inflammation in the tendons joining the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow. Other common tennis injuries also include back problems, ankle sprains, shoulder issues and wrist problems.
