Can I claim for a tennis accident?

Most sports carry a risk of injury and at Accident Advice Helpline, we are often asked, “Can I claim for a tennis accident?” The answer to this is a resounding yes. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault then a personal injury claim should be filed. There can be various reasons for a tennis related injury and the types of injury received include anything from cuts and grazes, to pulled or strained muscles and worse.

A common injury that can be caused by repeatedly straining and flexing the same arm is the aptly named tennis elbow, which is also known clinically as lateral epicondylitis. This is a type of repetitive strain injury that is common in recreational tennis. Sprained ankles are another common injury for tennis players and in some in cases, this can be because the tennis court is in a poor state of repair or the footwear that a player is wearing may not be appropriate for the game.
