I saw this week that researchers concluded that Tennis is the most useful sport for human health!! According to this research, playing tennis regularly reduces the risk of premature death up to 47%…..while swimming was 2nd at 28%!!

I also noticed a guy that is trying to be the first to swim across the Pacific Ocean which could take 6 months, if he even makes it!! I say to this guy….get in your car and drive to the Courts….you have a 19% better chance of being healthier?


NOW time to get in your CAR and come out to our COURTS!!
