Take up Tennis - A recent study showed that tennis helps prevent musculoskeletal problems in the over 50s - even more so than running, cycling or going to the gym.
'Tennis is great as an all-round sport,' says sports and exercise scientist Dr. Matthew Jackson, from Liverpool Hope University, which carried out the research.
'It targets the cardiovascular system but also improves your muscle mass and bone-mineral density because it's weight-bearing and incorporates aspects of power and strength.' (Women's Weekly June 2020 Edition)
