Having sustained a lot of minor and one major injury in my playing career, I´ve learned the hard way that proper stretching is the only way to prevent injury.
Try this: first, jog in place, or hit a few balls in the mini tennis area. Second, lightly and gently stretch your feet, ankles, and legs. Then, stretch your upper arms, then lower arms. Play, then stretch AFTER you play. This is important, as your muscle tissues are warm, and are most receptive, and in need, of stretching.
