Fun, Recreation & Competition

Exercise develops and maintains physical fitness and overall health. It is often practiced to strengthen muscles and the cardiovascular system, and to hone athletic skills.

Frequent and regular physical exercise boosts the immune system, and helps prevent diseases of affluence such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and obesity. It also improves mental health and helps prevent depression.

Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and can contribute positively to maintaining healthy weight, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system.

Frequent and regular aerobic exercise has been shown to help prevent or treat serious and life-threatening chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, insomnia, and depression.

Strength training appears to have continuous energy-burning effects that persist for about 24 hours after the training, though they do not offer the same cardiovascular benefits as aerobic exercises do.

Exercise can also increase energy and raise one's threshold for pain.

Tennis

Tennis has been described as a sport in which players have to respond skilfully to a continuous series of emergencies, such as sprinting to the ball, reaching, jumping, lunging, changing directions, stopping and starting.

The repetitive nature of the sport exposes players' bodies to regular stresses and potential injuries especially through the shoulders and lower back. Ankle and elbow injuries have also been identified as common problems in tennis players.

An effective strength & conditioning programme can improve players' maximal force and power production, reduce the incidence of injuries and contribute to faster recovery times, thereby reducing the number of missed practice sessions and competitions.

Injury prevention or prehabilitation should form a key part of any strength & conditioning program
