Surviving Winter Tennis

If you are one of the lucky ones who has access to indoor courts, your tennis game is probably not much bothered by snow and rain. For everyone else, you'll find us running out to the courts at the first sign of a break in the weather. During the winter, you have to take advantage of your opportunities, even though the weather is not perfect, if the courts are playable, you need to be out there.

Because of the hit-and-miss nature of winter tennis, your game can become inconsistent and your body more injury-prone. If you're used to practicing several times a week, but rain or snow prevent you from going out that often during winter, your game may suffer. At the same time, your body may also suffer because it is not getting the workout it's used to. Fewer matches also mean your mental toughness may not be in top form.

Assuming you won't be playing on indoor courts every day this winter, here are a few things to look out for during the cold months, and ways to still have fun with your tennis even if it's storming outside.

Now that you know what to expect during the winter tennis season, you should be better prepared to survive it. Remember to treat your body respectfully during this time, and don't expect as much of your tennis game if you haven't been playing much - just be happy to be outside. If all else fails, hop on a jet and head for the sun.
