Schools are continuously searching for innovative ways to promote sports and fitness among students. Tennis is a sport that not only provides a full body workout, but it also helps students become sharper and more alert, thereby improving academic performance. Here are several reasons why tennis is a great game for everyone and why schools should invest in tennis courts for their students:
Tennis helps students remain fit and healthy
With the demands of school, students might forget the importance of a regular exercise. This is why it’s necessary for schools to provide students with venues where they can play sports that help train and develop their bodies. With tennis, students are required to be in constant motion, allowing them to burn calories, increase bone strength, and improve the body’s flexibility.
Tennis helps students become smarter and sharper
Tennis is a sport that requires alertness, focus, and problem solving skills, as well as strategic and tactical thinking. For students who regularly play this sport, they are not just working out their muscles, but also their minds. With tennis, students will be able to enjoy a holistic development in both academic and extra-curricular aspects. Moreover, tennis is an exciting game that will surely bring hours of fun for both athletes and spectators.
Tennis fosters teamwork, communication and the value of competition
The social nature of tennis makes it a great venue to make friends and meet new people. At the same time, tennis fosters communication and coordination among players; allowing students to interact with each other on and off the court. Finally, it is also a healthy way to engage in some friendly competition among friends and classmates.
Tennis is a worthwhile investment for schools
There are advantages to having a tennis court within campus grounds. The court becomes a venue for official competitions and inter-school athletic meets. Schools can also lease the court for professional and recreational athletes’ training and competitions.
