Do I need to be good at tennis to play?

No. The best thing about Cardio Tennis is that you do not have to be good at tennis to get involved. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played before. Our coaches are trained to mix up the activities to cater for all skill and fitness levels, so while it’s a great for beginners, more experienced tennis players will also have a great time.

How long does a Cardio Tennis session last?

Our Cardio Tennis sessions are 60 minutes and usually comprise of:

  • 5-10 minute warm-up

  • 30-50 minute cardio tennis segment with drill-based and play-based activities

  • 5-10 minute cool down

Participants wear heart rate monitors or pedometers, exercise to music, use low-compression balls and a variety of equipment, including agility ladders. And, at the end of your session, you can check your stats on the heart-rate monitor to find out just how hard you worked
