5 Health Benefits of Playing Tennis

Mostly, the health benefits of playing this sport are seldom noticeable when compared to more intense sports like running, swimming, etc.

However, this is because most people are ignorant of the fact that playing tennis for just an hour can burn up to 600 calories making it just as effective as jogging or indoor cycling.
