Coach Sam B - Why Play Tennis In Singapore January 27 2017, 9 Comments
Hi, everyone! I am Sam B, a tennis coach who just joined Anyone For Tennis in January 2017!
In this blog, I'm going to explain why tennis is such a good sport to play and be involved in, particularly in Singapore!
Tennis is a sport for life! You are able to play tennis socially, or competitively, or both! In my experience, I have given tennis lessons to a child as young as 2 years old and to an adult of 80 years, as well as every age in between.
Nobody is too young or too old to start playing tennis. Tennis is undoubtedly a skilled sport, you will improve your playing standard and competence with practice, persistence and ideally tennis lessons too.
There are so many forms of tennis you can choose to play including cardio tennis, singles, doubles, tennis boot camps etc.You are never far away from a tennis court in Singapore and since all courts here have floodlights, you can play even at night.
Tennis is truly a global sport. Currently, the top 10 players in the world in both men and ladies professional tennis tours (ATP & WTA) are made up of 10 different nationalities in each.
Playing tennis is a great way to make friends and you can really improve your social connections by participating in tennis, unlike any other sport.
Last but not least, tennis is a great way to improve your fitness. Studies have shown that participating in cardio tennis for 1 hour can burn as much as 600 calories!
I will end off with a picture of me taken while travelling between lessons, drenched by one of Singapore's magnificent storms!
