5 Reasons Kids Should Try Tennis

Written By: happycamper

The best reasons why kids should try tennis!

Tennis has got it all.

It takes skill. It takes strategy. It is competitive. It is awesome. Tennis camp on Happy Camper Live will help teach you what you need to know to become a great tennis player. Here are some of the reasons why you must play tennis.

Mental Toughness

Most of us play tennis to have fun. But did you know that playing tennis can help you become mentally tough? Unless you are playing doubles, it is just you on the court versus your opponent. You might start out winning and then all of a sudden you are losing. Tennis can seem like a roller coaster ride. If you start to lose, what do you do? Do you give up or do you rally? The ups and downs of a match will challenge you and help you develop mental toughness.

Self-Esteem

Learning tennis on Happy Camper Live will help you improve your self-image. The better you get at tennis, the better you feel about yourself. When you win a tennis match, you know it is because you performed well. You are responsible for your success. This self-reliance helps you build confidence in your abilities and increases your self-esteem.

Tactical Thinking

Tennis requires constant strategy. You may come into a match with an idea of how you want to play, but what happens if your plan is not working? Every point is a new opportunity to surge ahead of your opponent. Are you able to change your strategy in the middle of a game? How will you approach your opponent so you have the best chance of winning?

Full Body Workout

Tennis is one of the few sports that works almost every muscle in the body. Whether Coach TJ is teaching you how to hit a backhand, come to the net, or serve, you are testing your overall fitness. It is a great source of both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. In addition, a tennis match can go on for quite a while which helps you build physical endurance.

Alertness/Concentration

Have you ever seen a tennis match? The ball is constantly whipping around at high speeds. It requires a high level of focus to keep track of all that is going on. You have to be aware of the ball, your racket and your opponent all at the same time. Since a tennis match usually lasts at least 30 minutes, you need to stay alert over a long period of time. This helps you develop concentration.

Besides being fun, tennis will test you mentally and physically. Learning how to play will help you become a stronger person. Are you up for it? Join coach TJ at tennis camp and start your journey to be a better tennis player today.
