Top Tips to Avoid Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a painful condition that most often develops on the outside of the elbow after using your arm repeatedly and often, which can cause inflammation or damage to the nearby muscles and tendons. Tennis players frequently experience similar symptoms, which is why it is nicknamed tennis elbow.

Work out your muscles to keep them flexible and strong so they can withstand stress. This includes moving your muscles up and down to stretch them. Your muscles will become stronger by performing exercises like push-ups, arm rotations, and arm bending and stretching. Being a little cautious can save you from injuries

To make sure you are utilising the right form and technique, think about hiring a qualified tennis instructor. This is essential to avoid improperly overusing muscles, which stops tennis elbow before it even begins. The danger of injury increases with sloppy form. A sound technique can reduce the strain on your smaller muscles and tendons, allowing you to play for longer.

my coach is Chetun, I’ve been taking his class, both group one and individual one, both are great!!! He’s experienced coach, knows how to teach, especially for entry -intermediate level players. They also provide good racket (better if they replace some old strings). Very prime location and relatively good price for this quality.
