Racquet Sports

Tennis, squash, badminton, table tennis… there’s a racquet sport for all ages, strengths, and levels of expertise. Boost your cardiovascular fitness and hand-eye coordination – whatever your age.

Tennis can be played as a sport or as a recreational activity with friends and family. Grab a ball and racket, book and court and you’re off!

Playing tennis is a brilliant sport to maintain your health, fitness, strength and agility. It has been calculated that an hour-long game of singles tennis burns around 600 calories for men and 420 calories for women.

If you enjoy some fresh air while you’re getting fit with a buddy – then tennis could be a fun starting point for you.
