Popularity of tennis growing around the area

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s a sport that continues to grow in popularity around the area. Whether it’s moms looking to get in shape, or children who prefer non-team sports, tennis is something that many folks are enjoying these days. The rise in popularity should only continue with the warmer spring weather hitting the courts in the coming weeks!

Tennis coaches say, unlike many other sports, it’s unique in that it’s something that people can play their entire lives. And a growing number of moms are signing up to take classes to get a great cardio work-out, and much more!

“There’s also the social aspect for the moms who are at home with kids and driving carpool all the time, they get an opportunity to come out and be with their peers, but also compete and get good exercise.” -Leslie Housman, Birmingham Tennis Academy coach

If you’re interested in learning the game of tennis, or sharpening the skills you already have, the Birmingham Tennis Academy offers classes for players of all ages and skill levels.
