Do this 15-20 times. Try these drills to improve your endurance, muscles, and fitness for tennis.
Table tennis. of course, i play it but i used to play tennis. Table tennis is more technical with spin and requires less athletic and fitness. Tennis is mostly about hitting the ball as hard as you can until one gets tired I totally agree. Table tennis is an ace sport and more girls should play it. I used to play tennis too but found it quite boring but i love table tennis and it is my main sport!
