tennis: Physical preparation

Tennis, like any other sport, requires adequate physical preparation to allow players to reach their full potential on the court. This physical preparation is essential for several reasons, including reducing the risk of injury and improving players’ overall performance. Indeed, impeccable technique is not enough to guarantee success on the court; It must be accompanied by optimal physical condition to be fully effective.However, tennis has specific characteristics that require a particular approach to physical training.

  • Decreased risk of injury: Physical training in tennis plays a crucial role in injury prevention. Explosive movements, rapid changes of direction and repeated strain on the upper and lower limbs can lead to musculoskeletal injuries, such as sprains, muscle strain and tendonitis. Adequate physical preparation, focusing on muscle strengthening, mobility, balance and coordination can help reduce the risk of such injuries and keep players on the court longer and healthier.
  • Improved performance: Good physical condition is also crucial to maximizing the performance of tennis players. Cardiovascular endurance is necessary to sustain long and intense matches, while strength and power are essential for powerful and accurate shots. In addition, good mobility and flexibility allow players to make smooth and efficient movements on the court, while agility and speed are required to react quickly to balls and move quickly around the court.
  • Specific Characteristics of Tennis: Tennis has unique characteristics that require a specific approach to physical training. Players must be able to change direction quickly, sprint to the ball, and stop abruptly to hit accurate shots. In addition, tennis matches are often long and require high cardiovascular endurance to maintain a high level of performance throughout the match.En outre, les joueurs doivent être capables de maintenir leur concentration et leur focus mental pendant de longues périodes, ce qui nécessite également un entraînement mental spécifique.

1.The caracterisitcs of the tennis

A top tennis player is going to play one tournament after another. Moreover, he will multiply his matches in the same tournament. Many brief efforts are repeated during a match. These efforts are spaced out with rests (when the ball is in the opponent’s game or when there are breaks during side changes)


2.The differents areas of work to be improved

  • Endurance

It is essential, as in majority of sports, to establish the aerobic bases which will allow our athletes to digest the load of the preparation before the season but also that during the season. To do this, it is advisable to carry out sessions that are not very intense but which last over time by using the aerobic system (jogging, fartlek, split, intermittent, etc.). This endurance work will help to maintain a high level fitness for as long as possible.

  • Explosiveness

As noted earlier, tennis is a change of pace sport. Explosiveness also plays an important role in this sport. It is therefore necessary to work on both the MAP (Maximum aerobic power) on short or short intermittent but also by grafting changes of direction, jumps… It is therefore a question of alternating work times with recovery times. As this sport requires relatively short sprints, we recommend that intermittent work should not exceed 20 seconds. The Sportbeeper PRO would be suitable for this type of exercise.

  • Coordination

Good coordination will allow the player to use all his skills with a minimum of energy.
