Tennis courts on Lake Garda

Play your favourite sport even on holiday.

by Marco Ghirello

Tennis is a very popular sport in Italy, both at amateur and professional level. Even in the Lake Garda area, there are several tennis courts where you can play freely or take lessons with a teacher.

Every year Italy hosts several high-level tournaments, including the Internazionali d'Italia in Rome, one of the most prestigious events on the ATP (men's) and WTA (women's) circuits.

In recent years, Italian tennis has achieved great results, thanks to the talent and determination of many players. Among the best known, we can mention Jannik Sinner, who at only 20 years old has already won five ATP titles, including the Toronto Masters 1000 in 2023 and his first Slam at the Australian Open in 2024. Sinner is considered one of the brightest promises of world tennis, due to his aggressive style and maturity.

Also in 2023, the Italian Davis Cup team won the prestigious trophy for the second time in its history, after the success achieved back in 1976 by the legendary team formed by Adriano Panatta, Corrado Barazzutti, Paolo Bertolucci and Tonino Zugarelli, captained by Nicola Pietrangeli.

In this second historic victory, Italy defeated Australia 2-0 in the final, thanks to the points won by Jannik Sinner and Matteo Arnaldi. Completing the roster of Italian players were Lorenzo Musetti, Simone Bolelli and Lorenzo Sonego, headed by Filippo Volandri.

Playing tennis: physical and mental benefits.

Tennis is a sport that requires both skill and endurance, while offering numerous benefits for physical and mental health.

Playing tennis improves your cardiovascular condition, as you increase your heart rate and oxygen consumption. This promotes blood circulation and the transport of nutrients to muscles and organs, preventing heart disease and strokes.

Muscles are strengthened, particularly those in the arms, legs and back, preventing the onset of muscle atrophy, a typical disorder of ageing. You also increase flexibility and balance, as you quickly change direction, coordinate your movements and maintain your posture.

Finally, a lot of calories and fat are burned through intense and prolonged physical exertion. This helps maintain a healthy weight and reduce body fat, preventing obesity and diabetes.

Tennis is not only good for the body, but also for mental health. This sport helps develop greater cognitive abilities, because you think and react very quickly. In this way, brain functions such as memory and concentration are stimulated, preventing cognitive decline.

Other aspects not to be underestimated include a marked reduction in stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and psychological well-being. Finally, social relationships are also fostered, as it is also possible to play tennis in pairs, increasing the sense of belonging and friendship.
