Cardio Tennis is a fun, social, group tennis-fitness program for people of all ages and abilities. It’s more about getting a great, high-energy workout than pure tennis technique.
An average a Cardio Tennis workout runs for 45 to 60 minutes and is comprised 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, 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!
According to the Tennis Industry Association, during a Cardio Tennis session, women will burn between 1260 and 2100 kilojoules per hour, and men will burn around 2100–3360 kilojoules per hour.
Cardio Tennis classes run every night and some mornings during the week at either the Brookwater Golf Club tennis court or the Springfield College courts.
