Is playing tennis a healthy form of exercise?

A former union conference president was known by its household helps as a good minister of the gospel. However, they can always predict the outcome of the morning's tennis match in the union compound if upon arriving home he either laugh or wear a bright smile or scold them for almost no apparent reason at all.

Tennis is fine. It's not the game itself. It's the person. He has/had issues that need(ed) to be dealt with.

I've played tennis with friends from church & it's always in fun. We never take it serious, to get mad if we lose or have it change our attitude for the day.
Thanks for responding Anitra.

That is true to most women when it comes to sports. But for men, the feeling of being a loser is different. To men, competition is a competition no matter how small or insignificant the task is. Men are seeking to prove themselves more smarter and talented they are with other men.

Observe champions being interviewed on TV. Their body language speaks their enthusiasm of their achievements than women champions.

Well, that depends on the person himself/ herself. God bless you. You are such a good sports.
Hi Fernando,

I forgot to say that the guys play as well and they have fun with no egos getting in the way. Though I do agree that in some areas men will be way more competitive than women. It goes the other way around for other things also.

God bless.
"A view of things was presented before me in which the students were playing games of tennis and cricket. Then I was given instruction regarding the character of these amusements. They were presented to me as a species of idolatry, like the idols of the nations." CT 350
Thank you very much on your quotes from Mrs. White. That's what Mrs. White opinion regarding that game and we believe the message was from God.
Ellen White's quote was not about playing Tennis, but about watching the game being played, like a spectator sport.

The same would apply to Football, Basketball, or any other spectator sport.
