We’re all familiar with the sports volleyball and tennis. Both sports are excellent for cross training and for getting a good cardio session in with a friend or a group of friends. They’re both so inviting that recently while at the beach, we witnessed one man approach another and say ‘hey, we need another player if you want to join in a round of volleyball’. They then shook hands and proceeded to the nets; a great testament to the importance of team sports in sociability!
So naturally, when we met up with a beach tennis team, it felt like the excitement was popping as though it’d been trapped in a ‘jack-in the box’. What could possibly be more fun than combining tennis and volleyball and the beach? Well, actually, you can play beach tennis on any surface, but since playing on sand in ZEM’s to protect these players’ feet has served them well, we’ll stick with our love for sports on sandy surfaces.
Beach tennis is easily becoming one of the more popular sports around and frankly, I can’t wait to try it! With ZEM’s, players maintain their agility on the sand, turf or anywhere else they may have put up a net! It’s a win win for everyone!
