Do not store the tennis racquet inside your car or in your trunk. Synthetic strings begin to lose tension at about 110 degrees F (43 degrees C). On a sunny, 90 degree F (32 degrees C) day, the temperature inside your car can soar to as much as 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) which is hot enough to even soften the resins in a frame and distort the racket. If you are planning a game after work, take your tennis racquet into the office; do not leave it in the car!
