Fun Tennis Workouts to Keep You In Shape All Year Long 

Fun Tennis Workouts to Keep you in shape all year longWho said tennis work outs had to be trivial and mundane? Here are some fun tennis workouts to spice up your routine and make sure you’re always improving.

1) Workout with a tennis ball machine

Tennis Ball Machine The can mix things up and give you a break from your usual routine. Depending on how you set it, it can generate a challenging workout; you can choose wide angles and have yourself running back and forth on the court. If you want to take it easy, you can set it to focus on strictly forehands and backhands, which means less running.

2) Special Cardio Tennis Workouts

Cardio tennis is a fun one hour workout that mixes cardio with tennis drills. It is fast paced but you can modify it to your abilities. It gets your heart pumping and is a full body workout. In one cardio tennis workout you will burn calories and brush up on your strokes, at the same time. You will go from hitting a few forehands to running a ladder drill and then back in line to hit more strokes. Check your local tennis club to see if they offer it in an organized activity.

3) Game of "Hot Box"

This game is a fast-paced double’s net play game. It will test your ability to play out points, as well as keep you on your toes throughout the entire game. How to play

  • b) The coach feeds an approach shot to the other side so that person has to come to the net.
  • c) They will then play out that point. If they lose the point they are out. If they win the point they get a volley fed to them and have to play out that point.

  • f) Once all the pairs have gotten out or become 'kings' the coach will feed a sky ball to the 'kings' to play out the point, as before.
  • g) If no one wins the point, they keep having sky balls fed to them in turns.
  • h) When a pair wins a point on the "kings" side they win the game.
