NUTRITION FOR
TENNIS

From friendly matches to multiday competitions, tennis puts intense demands on your body. Proper nutrition can be the secret to performing your best on the court. 

Before

Between morning and afternoon training sessions or back-to-back matches, give your muscles ample energy by fueling up with carbohydrates before stepping onto the court.

And be sure to stay hydrated! Proper hydration is important for power, endurance, and stroke precision—especially if you’re playing in the heat. Keep fluids courtside, and shoot for at least 8–12 ounces every time you change ends.
