The game of tennis has always been one of those activities/sports that really brings out my competitive spirit. Playing often in my youth (yes, I said that like I'm 80), it never felt like "exercise." I'd literally be on the courts, for hours, without a care. It was just fun. And I think that's key to sharing the message of fitness, to children. It doesn't have to be a boring chore!
