Stiff and sore hand/wrist

Sometimes near the end of my practice(after 2-3 hours), I will have a stiff and really sore hand and wrist. Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?

Maybe you're using the wrong grip size?

Re: Stiff and sore hand/wrist

I know that after I haven't hit for a few weeks and I get back out on the court, especially if it is for more than two hours, my hand will sometimes get stiff and it will hurt when I'm tightening my grip to hit the ball. To me this is natural, it goes away in the next few days while still playing and I believe it's just my body not being used to hitting such a huge amount of balls. If it's hurting even when you're off the court this is probably something different, but otherwise I think its just your body not being used to it. When
I first started playing competitive tennis my wrist was really sore. You should try to build up your forearm muscle and focus on hitting the sweet spot to decrease the amount of vibration going through your wrist. I hope that helps!

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.

Vamos Rafa!

Re: Stiff and sore hand/wrist

Your equipment could be causing the problem. What strings and racquet do you play with?

It's because you're using your wrist to hit the ball...
Maybe you need the racket bracket
