Children benefit from playing tennis by being involved in a healthy activity from a sport they can play for a lifetime. They learn team building, focus, anger management, discipline, hard work, goal setting, structure, and good sportsmanship. It helps their self-confidence grow while they have fun, make new friends, and learn new skills
