Are you over 35 & Looking to start or restart tennis later in life? Vamos makes it easy. It’s never too late to add a new activity to your life or pick up one you may have dropped some time ago. Here’s why learning tennis and/or improving your game with Vamos is the perfect way to keep your body AND mind healthy as you age.

Vamos Coaches Cater To Any Ability Level

It’s a common assumption to relate decreased physical activity and declining health with the normal aging process. But head down to your local tennis court, and you’re very likely to see someone in their 6th, 7th or even 8th decade chasing down the fuzzy yellow ball. Competitive tennis & tennis lessons are a highly popular pastime for men & women as they head past 35, and there’s a couple of key reasons why you should be playing tennis too.

Lean & Mean

Tennis Helps Lower Your Body Fat %

This study shows tennis players aged between 31 and 55 had below average body fat compared to athletes in other sports. A lower body fat % helps reduce your risk of obtaining high-risk diseases & afflictions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart attacks. And because tennis is a low-impact sport, your joints will stay healthy and mobile. 

Vamos Comes To You

We Come To You

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or coming back to the sport later in life, tennis lessons can be a daunting prospect.

A study from Denmark concluded tennis may extend your life by up to 10 years. Exercise has been shown to increase life expectancy by 1-1.5 years, but tennis ranks highest among all sports. The study concluded that the sports with the higher benefits had a larger amount of social interaction.
