    no. of days and hours do u play in one week without feeling that you are overdoing it. I noticed that if i overdo it i don't play as good. If u can mention your age and fitness level too. Thanks.

    I play 2-3 times a week for 2 hours at a time. I'd like to play more but I also play basketball and do weight training.

    Between 3-5 times a week, and between 3-4 hours at a time.

    I play 2-3 times a week for about 1.5-2 hours at time. So I never feel like I am overdoing it :D

    I would like to play 5-6 times a week, but with 2 young kids, a job that requires 55-60 hours a week, it simply isn't possible.

    3-4 times a week; 2-4 hours each time
    I'm 25 and moderately overweight, although I am losing it.

    I try to play daily if I can. It all depends on the weather though. I will play anywhere from an hour (short quick match) to 4 hours or more (yesterday best of 5 and then best of 3 right after). I'm 26 and in great shape. I play basketball once a week as well. Sometimes I will take a couple days off so I don't get burnout and so I can just relax and rest my body and be recharged for another few days.

    I have a regular Monday nite clinic with 3 other guys and a pro (1.5 hours). Play on Wednesday nites for 2 hours, Saturday mornings for 2.5 hours, and often on Sundays. I do a pilates class on Tuesday nites and do weight training on Thursday nites. During the winter I will work out more and play a little less tennis dependent on weather. I also work full time. lI am 59 and only feel this is about right for me.

    I'm 17, in almost perfect shape (except for a little gut). I hit 3-4 days a week, usually 2-3 hours. I also go to the gym everyday for a good 2 hours (Mondays,Wednesdays, and Fridays = Upper Body Strength) (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays = Lower Body Strength + Cardio)
