Tennis & All-Cause Mortality

According to research by Dr. Ralph Paffenbarger from Harvard University School of Public Health, people who participate in tennis 3+ hours per week cut their risk of early mortality by 50%.

The study analyzed physical and lifestyle characteristics in 16,936 Harvard alumni aged 35-74 for relations to rates of mortality from all causes and for influences on length of life. With or without consideration of hypertension, cigarette smoking, extremes or gains in body weight or early parental death, alumni mortality rates were significantly lower for those most active.

Tennis & HDL Cholesterol

According to a renowned study in Metabolism, HDL (“the good cholesterol”) is 16% higher in male tennis players and 11% higher for female players.

Fasting plasma lipid and lipoprotein concentrations were determined in 25 men and 25 women (mean ages 42 and 39 yr respectively) whose exclusive mode of regular exercise was tennis play. When compared to a sedentary group matched for age, sex, and education, the tennis players exhibited similar plasma total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol concentrations and significantly lower triglyceride and VLDL-cholesterol concentrations. HDL-cholesterol was significantly higher in the tennis players. It is concluded that frequent tennis playing is associated with increased HDL-cholesterol concentrations and that this relationship is independent of other factors known to alter plasma HDL-cholesterol concentration.
