Lawn Tennis

Lawn Tennis has become one of the most popular sports in India. Thanks to some iconic role models such as Sania Mirza, Leander Paes, who have reached the pinnacles of tennis and brought laurels to the country.  Tennis, originally named lawn tennis, is an outdoor game in which two opposing players (singles) or pairs of players (doubles) use lawn tennis racket to hit a ball of specified size, weight, and bounce over a net on a rectangular court.

Benefits of playing lawn tennis :

  • Tennis is a good sport for maintaining health, fitness, strength and agility. There is a lot of body  movement up and down across the vast court and hence can be a great exercise.

  • Competitive tennis burns more calories than aerobics, inline skating, or cycling, according to studies on caloric expenditures.

  • People who participate in tennis 3 hours per week cut the risk of death in half from any cause

  • Since tennis requires alertness and tactical thinking, it may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and thus promote a lifetime of continuing development of the brain.

  • It also has social and psychological benefits. Tennis players scored higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension than other athletes and non-athletes.

CoachDirect Way:

CoachDirect works with AITA and ITF certified coaches. Some of our coaches have also completed NIS coaching. We start with softer balls and slowly progress towards a regular tennis ball so that children get comfortable in handling the ball. Also shorter rackets are preferred for children before they start playing with regular sized ones. A lot of time is spent on footwork and ball feeding before players can start engaging in rallies.
