Walking Tennis - now everyone can play! 

The fully inclusive version of tennis for all ages and standards!


Walking Tennis has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Walking Tennis is a slower version of the game; it is tennis, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to injury, to those who believed they had hung up their tennis racket many years ago, it really is for everyone.



 Walking Tennis is ideal as someone can start gently and build up gradually, aiming to do a little more each session. Regular weight-bearing exercise helps keep bones strong by forcing the bones in the lower half of your body to bear a person’s full weight each time they move. Anyone take part in Walking Tennis will see many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility.
