Cardio Tennis can be a unique and fun form of exercise that reaps many benefits:
You'll consistently elevate your heart rate into your aerobic training zone
It’s much more fun than working out on a machine!
Sessions involve short bursts of high intensity workouts and periods of rest, almost like interval training, which burns more calories
It’s a fun group activity where players of all abilities can enjoy tennis together
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 new people
Even though you’re playing tennis, the focus is primarily on getting a great workout
You'll naturally improve your game because you hit so many balls and repeat various shots
These sessions are run on a weekly basis
Players should arrive changed, wearing comfortable sports clothing and non marking trainers or tennis shoes
We recommend that players arrive at least 15 minutes before so that they are ready for the start of the session
