Some Tennis Facts

Enhances Mental Sharpness
Since tennis requires alertness and tactical thinking, it may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and thus promote a lifetime of continuing development of the brain, reported scientists at the University of Illinois.

Builds Self-Esteem
Tennis players scored higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension than other athletes or non-athletes, according to Dr. Joan Finn and colleagues in a study done at Southern Connecticut State University.

Sport Advantage
Tennis outperforms golf, inline skating and most other sports in developing positive personality characteristics, according to Dr. Jim Gavin — author of The Exercise Habit.

Health Benefits
People who participate in tennis three hours per week (at moderately vigorous intensity) dramatically improve their health and cut their risk of death in half from any cause, according to physician Ralph Paffenbarger of Harvard University School of Public Health.
