Health Benefits of Playing Tennis
By Michael Cramton
A tennis match requires players to move side to side, up and back and at differing speeds to test a variety of muscles in your legs. And the inherent movements in a typical match help to improve forearm strength, back muscles and core development.
Tactical – Brain Development
Tennis is based on geometry and physics, and can help develop tactical thinking similar to playing a game of chess. Since a large proponent of playing tennis involves alertness and tactical thinking to develop shot patterns, the sport helps to generate new connections between nerves in the brain. Played over the course of many years, tennis can help improve or maintain brain development, keeping you alert and sharp well into your golden years.
The more you play tennis, the more you develop the fine motor skills required in ball striking, gauging distance and personal coordination.
Tennis tests your balance, speed, footwork and hand-eye coordination through a variety of techniques and movements. The better you become on the courts, you can also expect these attributes improve other aspects of your life.
In a recent study performed at Southern Connecticut State University, which tested the psychological benefits of several sports and among non-athletes, tennis players scored higher in self-esteem, vigor and optimism, while scoring lower for factors such as confusion, tension, anxiety and depression.
Regularly playing tennis can help keep you motivated on your professional path, as well as help you overcome obstacles that you may encounter in your personal life.
Other sports may provide differing levels of health benefits—swimming for upper body, running for leg strength and soccer for tactical reasoning—but none of them combine them in such an efficient package as the sport of tennis.
All of these health benefits make tennis one of the most beneficial sports you can play, physically, mentally and emotionally.

1)Scientists and physicians around the world view tennis as the most healthful activity in which you can participate.

Cheerful text makes you start play tennis and take care of your health, keep you in a good shape.
2)It’s not too late for adults and seniors to play tennis. The human system can be trained and improved at any stage of life.
3)My literal approach to get people to play tennis to show beauty of the rackets, to get people be healthier.
4)My images should include for 1 idea people (playing tennis, happy and healthy), 2 idea still life photography (show beauty and power of sport by showing on image racket and ball for tennis).
5)My models will be strong healthy looking people in a good shape.
6)Rackets and balls for tennis
7)I would use side lighting. This is arguably my favorite kind of light. Side light is light coming from the left or right of the subject. Or back lighting back lighting happens when the light source is behind the subject.
8)I would use side lighting natural colors, maybe bright to make photo look heathy, I would use high depth of field, to focus more on objects.
