4 Social Benefits Of Playing Tennis

I always look forward to my weekly tennis matches on Saturday mornings. But it’s not just the tennis I enjoy. It’s the social aspect too. Don’t get me wrong, I love my wife and daughter more than anything, but it’s just nice to have a couple of hours to myself once a week when I can have some exercise, play a sport I enjoy and have fun meeting other people in the process.
