If you like tennis but  prefer a work out that’s more about fitness and fun than technique and accuracy, you need to try cardio tennis. With music to keep you moving, the emphasis is on burning calories and having fun at the same time.

It’s a high intensity workout with a 10 minute warm-up, 40 minutes of tennis drills and play-based activity, followed by a 10 minute cool down.

Don’t be fooled into thinking you’ll get a rest when the ball basket is empty. You can only collect one ball at a time, as quickly as you can. If you snooze, you may be ordered to do burpees – it’s all about keeping you heart right up, after all.

Squishy balls are used to level the playing field. They travel at a lower speed, making them easier to hit and have longer lasting rallies. So it doesn’t matter whether you’re an experienced player or you’ve never picked up a tennis racquet.

Thanks to my friend Georgia Foley, and her dad Rick at the Victorian Tennis Academy, for introducing me to cardio tennis.
