    ....what are some of the few things I need to do in the week prior to competing in it? I'm only 17 but I'm playing int eh Boys 18's division. It's a L3 UPS tournament.

    My main question is how much condition and what should my meals consist of before and during the match?

    thanks in advance

    Just a couple ideas to kick it off-
    Banannas
    Trail mix
    Gukenaide

    BAG
    Put together some first aid in a zip lock- White (cloth) tape, bandages, salve
    aspirin (in foil pack)- you can always carry at least this stuff all the time, not just tournaments-
    No one wants to end up quiting just because of a blister on the racket hand that is getting worse and worse

    Couple (Grocery) plastic bags to haul
    Extra socks-extra shirt- at least a couple three (white bar size-smaller) towels
    Locker room (rubber) slippers (or even the cheap thong sandals) take your shoes off for any extended periods between matches- air 'em out and then replace socks (put old socks in the plastic bags).
