Looking to stay fit, boost your self-esteem and get moving in the outdoors? Look no further than one of our tennis holidays that allow you to make the most of this low-impact sport that can be enjoyed at any age. Whether you want to play competitively, for your health or just for fun, tennis has great benefits for the mind and body. Along with all the common benefits associated with being active, playing regular tennis helps to enhance your flexibility, co-ordination and balance and improves the body's ability to synchronise controlled movements.
Recent studies have also shown that playing tennis can help boost your brain power as tactical thinking, required during play, forces the brain to be creative so strengthens neural connections used for co-ordination.
As a celebrated summer sport, there's no better time to start playing tennis if you're a beginner or improving upon your skills should you already play regularly. Here, we round up our top 5 tennis holidays that will help you make the most of playing tennis while on holiday:
