takingDo you enjoy watching tennis on TV? Do your children want to join a club? Why not start playing tennis this year?

2. The average female playing an hour of singles tennis burns 420 calories while the average male burns 600.

3. Tennis is a non-contact, low impact sport with little risk of injury.

4. Playing tennis regularly significantly reduces the risk of Ireland’s three most common killer diseases – heart disease, cancer and lung disease.
