Depending on how you play it can be good cardiovascular exercise but wont do much for your muscles (barring endurance). At least, in my experience of it

There are alot of variables, how good you are, your style of play, intensity played at, the way you move and read the game, singles/doubles, all will affect how much effort you expend. Personally I move about relatively little, prefering to control the points or at least playing shots to put me into a controlling position as soon as possible, where as a friend I used to play with alot would happily run all over the court to chase points down and was more of a scrappy player, very hard to beat though. In general I would say its a great form of exercise though so as long as you enjoy it keep it up.
