Optimum Tennis Benefits

Here are suggestions for getting the most training benefit from your tennis game:

  • Play singles, not doubles. You'll have to go after more balls and cover more territory.

  • Choose slow court surfaces. Points last longer on slower courts, so you do more running and hitting.

  • Be aggressive. Go after every shot, even if it's going out. Run, don't walk, back to your position.

  • Keep moving. Run in place or walk quickly in circles while your opponent is gathering balls or during other pauses.
