    Common tennis injuries


    Complex and physically demanding, tennis is a sport that requires excellent hand-eye coordination and entire body participation for running, positioning, swinging and hitting. Due to these high demands, most common tennis injuries are overuse injuries.

    Acute tennis injuries may also be caused by random incidents, like slips, trips and falls, for example.

    Some common tennis injuries

    The most common tennis injuries include:

    • Rotator cuff (shoulder) tendonitis
    • Tennis elbow
    • Wrist strains
    • Back pain
    • Achilles or calf tendon injuries
    • Front (anterior) knee pain
    • Ankle sprains
    • Tennis toe

    The risk of suffering these common tennis injuries can be minimised by muscle-conditioning exercises, regular training to increase flexibility and endurance, appropriate equipment and proper techniques.

    Acute injuries

    Ankle sprains, wrist strains, back and knee injuries may also be the result of tennis court accidents, like trips, slips and falls, for instance. Injuries like these can also be caused by slipping, tripping or falling off-court, in shops, on the road and anywhere else, for that matter.

    Slips and trips

    If someone was injured by a slip or trip that could have been prevented, like a slip on wet flooring in a shop, for example, there is a good chance that this injured individual could be entitled to claim for personal injury compensation if:

    • The slip injury was sustained within a period not exceeding three years prior to making the claim
    • The injury by slipping was the result of the shop’s owner not taking the necessary steps to prevent slip, trip or fall incidents in spite of being aware of potential hazards

    If this kind of scenario applies to you, one of our no-win no-fee* solicitors can help you get the justice and compensation you are rightfully entitled to.
