tennis, badminton, and ping pong

Tennis is a strenuous sport that can be continued as an individual becomes older if the person has developed stamina over a period of years of consistent involvement. Generally, tennis should not be taken up anew after the age of 65 without thorough physical conditioning. Playing doubles rather than singles tennis is one way to play the enjoyable sport with lower physical stress. Those who have developed the stamina for tennis find it is an excellent way to keep their bodies in good physical condition. Badminton and ping pong offer alternative physical activity of a less strenuous nature.
