If you’re new to the game, there are loads of reasons to start playing tennis. Have a read of the below to find out a little more about the sport…you’ll be on court before you know it!
It’s easy to get started
Tennis really isn’t as hard as it looks and after a couple of sessions, you’ll soon be in to the swing of things. A couple of things to help you get started would be to try out softer balls or seek out the helping hand of a coach.
Softer balls really aren’t just for kids. As they’re softer they don’t bounce as high or fly off your racket as quick so it’s a little bit easier to control your shots. This will make your rallies last longer and should mean you spend less time bending over and picking up balls. It’s probably easiest to buy them online. And don’t worry, they still have that new tennis ball smell.
If you are just getting started, you might not have a racket or be worried about the type of clothes you have to wear. Well, it’s pretty easy to find the basic equipment you need to get started. Most big sports retailers will stock a range of rackets and you can also get them online. Wearing whites really is a thing of the past and you can get on almost all courts in a t-shirt a pair of shorts and trainers.
If you do want to get some expert help to develop or hone your tennis skills you can always use allplaytennis.com to find an LTA registered coach in your area.
So you have no excuses - it’s time to get on court and get playing…….
