USTA Events Promote Health Benefits of Tennis

March 9, 2012


The AAN Sports Neurology Section, in conjunction with the United States Tennis Association (USTA), will provide FREE morning cardio tennis events daily from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. beginning Monday, April 23, and running through Friday, April 27, during the AAN's 2012 Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

The event will help promote the health benefits of tennis, while bringing overall awareness to the sport.

By exposing AAN members and their families to a fun morning of tennis—and providing educational pamphlets regarding the health benefits of this and other similar sports—the Sports Neurology Section will increase awareness within the neurologic community of how exercise can benefit neurologic health and well–being. All skill levels are welcome!

Cardio Tennis is a safe and healthy workout designed for players of all ability and fitness levels. The event will take place at the Hilton Health Club in New Orleans. We will ask that attendees arrive at 6:45 a.m. to get provided heart rate monitors programmed.
