Physical Benefits Of Playing Tennis

My only regret about playing tennis is that I didn’t take up the sport more seriously at a younger age. As I approach 40 (still a year or so to go…gulp!), and having played for the past 3 years, I’m pleased that my game is steadily improving.

How To Make A Grass Tennis Court

To date, I’ve never played on a grass tennis court. I’ve also never played on a clay court either. All the matches I’ve played over the past few years have been on hard courts. However, given the choice, I would love to play a game or two on grass Firstly, for me, grass courts are the most visually stunning courts to look at.
