    Tennis not being as active? This is coming from a former football and track player and current baseball play and tennis is HARD. It takes skill and it may not be the 5 mile run like track but its sprinting for an hour. It wont make you grow taller (Thats all genetics and eating your fruits and vaggies ;D)

    yeah defintely…its the most active sport there is and i mean its not just about the arms and legs its every part of your body….and yeah wehn you hit puberty you’ll grow and tennis will help you become taller….but to tell you the truth i think swimming will help you grow taller!

    i do not think so that playing tennis can help people grow taller. maybe in effect of playing rigid tennis you might fall asleep early, and because of that situation it might help people grow taller. but it would be better for you to continue playing tennis. it is really good for our health.

    Well tennis is one of the most active sports, you use your entire body, not just your arms and legs.
    & plus if you play a good match you will do a lot of running sometimes equivalent to a few miles..
    you don’t need to play in tournaments to get good exercise, i take my cousins to the park to play, and when we first started going they used to get tired really fast, over the time they lost weight and played for longer periods of time..
    tennis cant really help you grow taller, then again what sport can?

    As a beginner, it would not be very exercising,as you would be using mostly only your arms. But once you get slightly better at the basics, it is one of the most exercising sports for the entire body. But it will not help in increasing height. For what you are looking for, swimming is probably better.

    Hard-core tennis (high level tennis) is one of the most physically demanding sports you can play. The hard core level requires you to sprint non-stop while changing direction every few seconds, be able to stop on a dime to be able to hit the ball with the right stroke, and start sprinting again, all while focusing on the ball smashing across the court. At the beginner stage of tennis, you don’t have any of this. Most of the balls will float right over to you at the lower levels. But when you get better and make it up to the hard core level, it’s an entirely new game. =D
