If you are an advanced player looking for competition, Dan Doenges can connect you with our top players and groups and USTA Teams. At Vermont Sport & Fitness, we set the standard for tennis in our region. But most of all, we provide a way to get exercise in a fun and inviting atmosphere.
Many sports offer great fitness results, but tennis stands out because it’s a lifetime sport that can provide you with numerous long-term health benefits. A sedentary lifestyle can contribute greatly to the development of negative health conditions. Playing more may be very beneficial. Playing moderately vigorous tennis at least three hours a week reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, strengthens muscles, and increases coordination.
“In addition to improving neural connections and developing new neurons, studies show that exercises that require a lot of thinking — such as tennis — can actually improve brain function in ways that aid memory, learning, social skills and behavior.”
The largest benefit of all is that you get to play with friends and family. As we are learning these life long friendships and connections could be the true fountain of youth.
