Knee pain is super common in tennis – it’s rarely one to take you away from the game completely, but you just know something is going on when you bend down for a low ball or feel that naggy ache after a match.

Why does it hurt?

Our knees can get irritated when there is a period of increased load. That can happen with

  • Increased time and intensity on the court
  • Your groundstroke, serve and volley technique
  • Changing playing surface or shoes
  • Muscle deconditioning after a long lay-off from tennis

Quite often it’s a combination of those along with everything else that is happening outside of the court!

How long will I be sore for?

Many players deal with knee pain for A LONG TIME. However, it actually doesn’t take too long to settle down the pain and discomfort. With a combination of soft tissue work, strapping and modifying your technique, we expect your symptoms to settle in 1-2 weeks.

What’s the best thing to do overcome knee pain?

Once the symptoms are relatively settled, it is really important to get the muscles in the legs stronger to better support the knee and cope with the high loads in tennis. At the same time, we train the body to move more efficiently when you are changing directions, jumping and landing and generating power on your shots.
