Finally ensure your courts are safe to play on, removing any leaves or debris before you start, especially when it’s wet underfoot. It is worth bearing in mind that if you are committed to playing on the courts, we do recommend that you wear tennis appropriate footwear to support the types of movement you are likely to make! Running shoes and non-tennis specific footwear is not regarded as ideal and could lead to a heightened risk of injury.
Keep yourself safe and enjoy your tennis!
