Tennis is good for your eyesight!


Sorry it’s been a while since my last post.  It’s been busy!!!! 🙂 Paphos tennis Coaching takes up a lot of time.

So, what’s this about eyesight?  I’d never really thought about it, but one of my parents came to me to tell me how happy she was that tennis had helped her child’s eyesight.  Apparently in just 4-5 months of tennis her eyesight improved significantly.  Some of this was down to the exercises she did, but according to the optician if he compared it to others with the same condition doing the same exercises, tennis accounted for an extra 20% improvement in her eyesight. Wow!!!

Why was this? Well as a beginner, we did loads of exercises to improve hand to eye co-ordination for both the right and left hand and then having to focus on the ball to be able to hit it helped more.  She can now play tennis and has a great time.  You can’t say fairer than that.

So, if you know children who have a lazy eye, or maybe other conditions, then just maybe tennis could help along with the exercises given by the optician.  I’ve always believed that anyone can play tennis and this is just one example.

See you on court!!!
