Cardio Tennis - Summer Sessions
Updated: 1st December 2012
What is Cardio Tennis?
Cardio Tennis is a great new and fun way of getting fit or staying in shape. It comprises a series of tennis‑based drills and activities played to up‑tempo music on a tennis court. It doesn't require tennis skills, but is all about keeping your heart rate up, burning calories, and having fun. Whether the ball goes in or out is irrelevant, as the main purpose is to get fit and have fun.
You can burn up to 700 calories in a one‑hour session - thousands of people have got into shape thanks to Cardio Tennis, so why not give it a go? Remember - no tennis experience or equipment required!
What's been happening at St.James' Park?
Free taster Cardio Tennis sessions were held on Sunday 13th May 2012 and Sunday 8th July 2012.
Throughout Summer 2012, Cardio Tennis sessions were held twice a week at St.James' Park, on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, at a discounted price of just £2 per session.
When we get news of any further planned sessions, we'll let you know!
