, Itís official, playing sport and especially racket sports are beneficial for a long and healthy life. A study by Oxford University, and researchers in Finland and Australia, followed more than 80,000 people for an average of nine years to find out if certain sports protected them against early death. It found that people who played racquet sports regularly were the least likely to die over the study period, reducing their individual risk by 47 per cent compared with people who did no exercise. Swimmers reduced their chance of death by 28 per cent and cyclists by 15 per cent. Yet running appeared to have no impact on dying early, and neither did playing football or rugby. The scientists say the difference may lie in the social aspect of sports like tennis and squash, which often involve clubs and organised activities outside of the game. It means that people playing these sports can have larger social networks and tend to keep up activities into later life, both of which are proven to be good for health. So it looks like youíve made a good choice to be a member of this club!
