   Participating in tennis comes with many health and fitness benefits. Playing competitively burns more calories than some other popular exercises, including aerobics. There are many physical reasons to play tennis, and they help with fitness and improved health.

   Focusing on nutrition and agility, tennis helps to prevent injury while maintaining higher energy levels. The health benefits of tennis are plentiful, but you’ll also be developing a work ethic and learning to compete one-on-one with ups and downs through each game.

   Tennis is a game that helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle, and our tips from USTA show you how to use tennis to your health advantage.
