The USTA website on Player Development posts a very interesting article worth reading on Health and Tennis:

The Health Benefits of Tennis
by E. Paul Roetert, Ph.D, October 13, 2004

A very good argument can be made for the "long view of tennis" as a sport for life which offers a lifetime of health and fitness benefits...including maintaining aerobic capacity, managing body weight and stress levels, and prolonging muscular endurance.

Happy tennis!
