Whether it’s singles, doubles, or against a brick wall, tennis is a great social game – but, it can take a bit of practice. If you’re new to tennis, you may just enjoy hitting back and forth with a friend and practising your serve to begin with.


If you want to further develop your skills, tennis lessons will teach you proper technique and footwork, and all the rules of the game. For those who have a Fitbit, check out Fitbit Cardio Tennis.
