Tips from the Pros;
10 Ways to Prevent Tennis Injuries

  1. Include an appropriate warm up and cool down
  2. Hydration- make sure you're drinking enough water before, during and after play
  3. Technique- focus on the proper technique
  4. Treatment- if hurt, find people who are qualified to treat you
  5. Rest- make sure there's enough time for rest and recovery between games
  6. Education- educate yourself on injuries and how to prevent them
  7. RICE- rest, ice, compression and elevation
  8. Preparation: prepare for play.  Get enough practice in to play your best and condition yourself for long matches
  9. Off court- get some off court training in to strengthen your body and mind.  The more fit you are, the better you can concentrate
  10. Stretch- after you warm up your muscles, stretch them out.  Also, after play, stretch as part of the cool down
