Tennis is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. It is a non-contact/low-impact sport that is not only fun, but contributes to an active and healthy lifestyle. Numerous studies have shown playing tennis regularly:
Increases aerobic capacities and reduces risk of heart disease up to 50%
Lowers resting heart rate and blood pressure
Improves metabolic function
Increases bone density
Lowers body fat
Increases reaction time
Improves muscle tone, strength, balance and flexibility more than just about any other sport
People who play tennis score higher in vigor, optimism and self esteem and score lower in anger, confusion, and tension.
There is no membership requirement. All are welcome.

Don't worry...You'll feel right at home when you see how we play. All skill levels are welcome, even if you have never played before. We just enjoy hitting the ball while socializing and having fun. In fact, we don't even keep score.
