It has been a warmer and drier winter then expected, which we might pay for in a few months, but for now it's perfect tennis weather.  Courts ae filling up with players getting their practice in before the new spring league season begins.  With the Australian Open tournament completed and Roger Federer winning his 20th Grand Slam event at 36 years old, people are motivated to keep trying to improve while fine tuning different aspects of their game.  If you are a new member or just new to tennis, I offer a free orientation and lesson for you.  Just give me a call at the Club and bood a time.

This year, we are holding 21 social events, tournaments, Pickleball events and challenges.  If you'd like to see what's happening out on the courts just go to the Serrano Website, and click on tennis.  Enjoy this great weather and get out and play.

"Tennis make you live longer."
A study released in early December 2017 suggests that regularly playing tennis can help stave off death, while sports such as soccer and running may not help people live longer at all.  Oxford University researchers and scientists iin Finland and Australia followed more than 80,000 people for an average nine years to find out if certain sports helped protect them against early death.  People who played tennis regularly were the least likely to die over the study period, the report found, reducing their individual risk by 47 percent compared to people who did not exercise.  Swimmers reduced their chance of death by 28 percent, aerobics participants by 27 percent and cyclists by 15 percent, according to the study.  Running, soccer and rugby appeared to have no impact at all on living longer.  Scientists have speculated that one of the reasons racquet sports such as tennis may help prevent early death is the social aspect that goes along with playing it, which ofted leads to organized activities beyond the court.

Tennis participants, generally have larger social networks and keep up activities later in life- both of which tend to be good for health.  People who played team sports when younger ofter do not move on to a new sport once they stop playing.  They think tennis not only offers the usual physiological benefits, but also offers additional mental helalth and social benefits, perhaps unique to the sport.
