Tennis on the whole is deemed as a difficult sport to play; co-ordination, dexterity, perception and reception skills combined with different strokes, technique, grips, rules and scoring….just thinking about these sorts of issues is enough to put people off trying the game!
Cardio Tennis removes these common barriers; a series of tennis-based drills and activities played to up-tempo music on a tennis court. It does not require tennis skills, but is all about keeping your heart rate up, burning calories and having fun. Whether the ball goes in or out is irrelevant as the main purpose is to get fit! However you naturally improve your game because you hit so many balls and repeat various shots.
So come and join in the fun of our heart pumping cardio tennis sessions.
Cardio Tennis is a really fun group activity for everybody; young, old, men and women. If you haven’t played for a while or don’t know who to play locally, it can be a great way to get back into tennis and meet people. In an hour’s session the average person could burn 700 calories, compared to 350 if you’re playing doubles and 500 if you’re playing singles, so it’s a great way to lose weight and get fit.
You consistently elevate your heart rate into your aerobic training zone, it is much more fun than working out on a machine and you get short cycles of high intensity workouts and periods of rest, almost like interval training, which burns more calories. It is also a fun group activity where players of all abilities enjoy tennis together, even though you are playing tennis, the focus is primarily on getting a great workout and you naturally improve your game because you hit so many balls and repeat various shots.
