Team Canada Women's Kayak Team recently participated in a cross-training event at the Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre. We believe that tennis is a great secondary sport for athelets and the perfect cross-training exercise. Tennis promotes hand/eye coordination, is a great cardio experience and will help build team spirit.
During a recent visit to the DNTC the National Kayak Team learned basic tennis skills, played tennis games, challenged their new techniques in team events and watched an exhibition match played by our own Teaching Pros.
David Green works closely with several National, Provincial and other teams to give athletes an opportunity to learn the game of tennis and consider tennis as a cross training opportunity. Tennis is a low impact sport with very limited injury potential. If you are interested in your team visiting the centre and taking advantage of tennis for teams please call us at 902-423-3682 or email Dave Green at email@example.com. your team can experience the advantages of cross-training with tennis.
