Learn to Play Tennis in just 1 hour!

 

‘Tennis really is simple and easy to learn’ – We have been helping coaches and players to learn this fantastic game using the Inner Game Methodology, for over 20 years.

 

What is the Inner Game Methodology?

The main aim of the inner game methodology is to help a person reduce their interferences so that a more natural, effective and robust way of learning can take place. An Inner Game facilitator will help a person to become more aware of what they are currently doing whilst also helping them to trust in the natural learning process. So, in tennis, for example, a player will be encouraged to place their attention in a non-judgemental way on the ball, or the racket or their body, without over-thinking or over-trying.

 

Tennis enables a long and healthy life.

 

Here's how:

 

The Health Benefits of Tennis:

 

A Key to Longer Life

 

The quest for a long and healthy life is nearly universal, and many individuals explore various avenues to achieve this aim. Among these, regular physical activity often takes center stage, with tennis or racket sports standing out as particularly beneficial according to findings from neuroscience and public health research.

 

Hand-Eye Coordination and Brain Activation

 

Dr. Daniel Amen, a noted neuroscientist from the USA, has pointed out that tennis or racket sports in general requires acute hand-eye coordination, which activates specific regions of the brain. This coordination not only promotes physical agility but also stimulates cognitive functions. Tennis demands continuous strategic thinking and quick decision-making, challenging the brain and potentially enhancing brain health. Such mental engagement can foster neuroplasticity, where the brain forms new neural connections, thereby enhancing cognitive reserve.

 

Increased Longevity Associated with Tennis

 

Supporting the cognitive benefits of tennis, research from the University of Copenhagen presents compelling data on its life-extending effects. A comprehensive study indicated that tennis players live, on average, nine and a half years longer than non-active individuals. This significant extension in lifespan can be attributed to multiple factors, including intense physical activity, social interactions, and stress reduction, all integral to playing tennis.

 

Physical Health Benefits

 

Tennis provides a robust combination of endurance and strength-building exercises. Players continuously move across the court, which serves as cardiovascular exercise, while the rapid, powerful movements required to hit the ball build muscle strength. This blend of aerobic and strength training can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, enhance bone density, and optimize overall body composition.

 

Social Interaction and Psychological Well-being

 

An often-overlooked aspect of playing tennis is its social dimension. Tennis typically involves playing with others, whether in doubles or singles, promoting social interaction. Maintaining social connections is known to enhance psychological well-being and reduce stress, contributing further to longevity.

 

Conclusion

 

In summary, tennis is more than a mere pastime; it is an investment in one’s physical and mental health. The activation of the brain through hand-eye coordination, combined with the physical and social benefits, renders tennis an excellent choice for those seeking not just to extend their lifespan, but to improve their health quality as well. Regardless of age, tennis offers a valuable opportunity to enhance one's health and enjoy life more fully.
