There is no denying that tennis is one of the world’s most played sports. It’s something that people of all ages can play and has simple, easy to follow rules. You often see adults playing tennis, but is it something you should encourage your kids to play? In a word, the answer is yes. Here’s why:
It’s not a contact sport
One of the risks of playing many sports is getting injured when in contact with other players. The beauty of tennis is that it’s not a contact sport. Did you know that tennis is one of the safest sports for children to play? There are just two players in tennis, and each is separated by a net.
It’s a brilliant way to learn life skills
You might not think it at first. But, tennis is a sport where children can learn and refine various life skills. Examples include discipline and observation. As a tennis player, you also learn about respect too. They are all skills that can get applied to various things outside the tennis court in later life.
It helps to develop a child’s fitness levels
Keeping fit and healthy is crucial to the development of any child. All youngsters need some degree of physical exercise. Playing tennis is one of the ways they can achieve that goal.
It gives children a potential career option
Some kids love tennis so much when they become adults that they make a career out of it! You only have to think of tennis aces like Novak Djokovic to see what I mean!
