Extracurricular Activities


Tennis is a sport for kids to learn early in life, and there are numerous benefits: 

  • Cross-training by offering a physically demanding sport that’s fun to play
  • Leg strength, through hundreds of starts and stops which build stronger leg muscles
  • Bone strength and density by strengthening bones of young players
  • General body coordination since you have to move into position and then adjust your upper body to hit the ball successfully
  • Eye-hand coordination, because you constantly judge the timing between the on-coming ball and the proper contact point
  • Flexibility, due to the constant stretching and maneuvering to return the ball toward your opponent
  • Discipline, since you learn to work on your skills in practice and control the pace of play in competition
  • Learning to solve problems, since tennis is a sport based on angles, geometry, and physics
  • Learning sportsmanship, since tennis teaches you to compete fairly with opponents
  • Having FUN… because the healthy feelings of enjoyment, competitiveness and physical challenge are inherent in the sport

So next time you are thinking of physical activity for your child, think of Tennis. It's a great way to keep your child healthy and fit!

The tennis trainings take place at sports club SILA during the winter and at the open courts of Spa Hotel Markovo when the weather allows it.
