Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you’ve made (or are on the verge of making) a great decision to be one of the millions out there taking beginner tennis lessons for adults.
You can play tennis no matter how old you are.
You’ve probably heard people say this a million times, and I’m going to say it again because it’s true; tennis is a lifetime sport. Whether you are in your 20s, 40s or beyond, it’s not too late to start taking beginner tennis lessons for adults now! Nothing makes me happier than seeing the Monday morning group of 80 year olds at my local club play some doubles. They inspire everyone around them on a weekly basis and they can lob and drop shot better than me!
On top of that, tennis is a great form of exercise (much better than a treadmill), a great way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors, and will introduce you to a whole new social group, whether you decide to play recreationally or competitively.
The old adage, “it’s harder than it looks,” applies to tennis, too.
Maybe it was watching Roger Federer’s graceful game or Serena William’s power that turned you on to playing tennis. But if there’s any advice I can give you, get that image out of your head because you will look nothing like them when you start – and probably won’t ever (sorry!). That may sound harsh, but they have been playing for years and have hit millions upon millions of balls to perfect their muscle memory. There’s a reason why they get paid to play!
Taking adult tennis lessons for beginners will get you there faster.
You could go hit the ball against the wall or try to play with some friends, but all you’re doing in most cases is developing poor technique and this could possibly lead to injury. So do yourself a favor; get a few tennis lessons to get yourself started. During a tennis lesson, a professional will teach you the proper way technique and feed you countless balls so you can develop muscle memory through repetition. From there, you can practice against the wall or with a partner to further develop your skills. Taking adult tennis lessons for beginners will accelerate your progress, which in turn will help you enjoy playing tennis more!
