According to medical research from the Cleveland Clinic, playing tennis on a regular basis for older people  is good for the heart. It’s also good for the body and mind and playing tennis on a regular basis produces physical, physiologic and psychologic benefits. These benefits include increased burning of calories, reduction in blood pressure and reduced stress. All of these benefits play a role in reducing a person’s risk of developing heart disease, the number-one disease among men and women.

Session: 50+

Time: Wednesday 10.00am -11.30am
