Play Tennis - Live Longer

Did you know that you can live 9.7 years longer if you play tennis?  That’s amazing! As reported in Forbes magazine, a Danish study concluded after studying participants over a span of 25 years, tennis was the sport with the most benefits.  Tennis is problem-solving, strength training with your own body weight, great for your heart—good cardio but not too strenuous, but most of all it is social!
