For those who love the game of tennis but do not regularly play, there are many reasons why you should join a local tennis club. Depending on your tennis ability and your reason for playing- whether it is socially or competitively- there are different tennis clubs which suit different people. No matter your tennis ability, there IS a tennis club for you!
While tennis clubs provide players with access to competition tennis, they also offer so much more for those who just enjoy the occasional hit. Clubs that accommodate social tennis are perfect for this. Every player has to start from somewhere, so don’t be afraid of not being up to the standard of others. At my own tennis club, Highmoor Uniting Tennis Club, players are matched up fairly in doubles matches, so that you are always able to play with and against players of a similar standard.
Tennis is also one of the best sports which maximises exercise without sacrificing enjoyment. If you are looking to improve your fitness you will be amazed at what a few social sets once or twice a week will do for you. You also get the chance to meet new people.
So go and find a tennis club near you and join. There are no more excuses left, and only a lot to gain!
