Rejoice for spring is right around the corner! Hopefully, the snow and coldest of days are behind us, and we can start playing tennis on outdoor courts and in the sunshine. Here are some tips as we move our game outside:

  • Be aware of high school tennis schedules and reservations: Besides public parks, some of the better maintained tennis courts and nets can be found on local high schools. Spring, however, also happens to be the start of the girls’ high school tennis season for most districts (and both boys and girls tennis for Seattle Metro League). For 2022, team tryouts start on Feb. 28, and the last match of the season typically falls on the first week of May. Most high schools hold team practices every weekday afternoon after class, so courts may be occupied from 3:30 to 6 pm. In addition, many public courts (particularly in King County) are available for reservations, usually for a minimum of 60 minutes. Players who have paid a fee to reserve a court take priority.
  • Equipment: Make sure your racquets are in good shape, strung properly, and you have at least two racquets. Why? Grit, dirt, and other substances will typically wear your strings faster than playing indoors. You don’t want to have to stop playing prematurely because you don’t have a spare racquet. Likewise, make sure to check the traction on your tennis shoes. You’ll want better traction particularly on outdoor courts, and if your current shoes are already worn down, it may be time for a new pair of sneakers. In addition, be sure to have the essentials for the outdoor elements, including: a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a reusable water bottle.

Serve and groundstrokes: It is vital to know how to serve with the sun in your eyes. Learn to adjust your toss so the ball is not directly in front of the sun. At the same token, when you know your opponent is facing the sun, throw up some lobs since it will be difficult for them to hit. When it’s windy, use topspin on both your serve and groundstrokes since these types of shots will have higher net clearance, resulting in fewer faults and errors
