Why Should I Play Tennis?
What sport gives you a workout for your body and mind, helps you stay fit your entire life and can connect you with people all around the world? If you have found yourself at my website the answer is obvious…Tennis! Tennis is a sport that can be played with men and women of all ages and at all ability levels. It is a sport which promotes fair and healthy competition and you can pick up tennis at any time in your life and find success. Not only can you compete locally, but you can take your game internationally and connect with the passionate tennis community around the world.
A Fun Way to Stay in Shape: Tennis is a mental chess match and a total body workout all rolled into one. There are multiple ways to win each point and you are always trying to out think and outplay your opponent. Tennis is a great way to personally challenge yourself as the number of matches you win determine if you are getting better. Going to the gym is boring! You can burn up to 400-plus calories per hour and tennis will help you achieve your fitness goals in a fun and rewarding way.
Great for All Ages and Ability Levels: Tennis can be played by men and women of all ages and ability levels. Many people who play recreational sports (basketball, soccer, etc.) will normally stop playing as they get older due to injury, etc. Not so with tennis! You can play tennis your entire life and it is not uncommon to see players aged 10 to 65 on a court right next to each other. You build your tennis game based on your unique strengths and abilities.
Perfect for a Busy Schedule: Some of my least favorite words in the English Language, “I’m Busy.” Everyone is busy and being busy is no excuse to not try something new or for not staying in shape. Tennis will fit into anyone’s schedule. Once you learn the proper form and technique tennis is like riding a bike, once you learn it, you don’t forget! Proper technique and form will serve you well over your entire life and you can take a break from tennis and come right back to playing years later. You can be as competitive or non-competitive as you like. Tennis is perfect for a working professional or busy parent who wants a fun way to stay in shape and make the best use of their limited and valuable time.
Community: Tennis is not only popular in the Washington D.C. metro area, it is popular all over the world and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) hosts tournaments all over the world throughout the year. Take your game from the courts of Fairfax, VA to Barcelona, Spain! Lifetime friendships and business partnerships have been formed on the tennis court and the tennis community is always excited to welcome new members to our ranks. Networking opportunities abound as you never know how you will meet on the court…
Tennis can help anyone live a better life. If any of the reasons above interest you allow me to be your coach and teach you a sport that will be your companion for life. I can’t wait to meet you!
