    Every time I start playing tennis my wrist starts to hurt. After I take like a five minute break it gets better but still hurts a bit then later the pain goes away. Well I got two blisters one day for wearing really tight shoes so I took a break in tennis for five days. I played again and the wrist still hurt?!?! Any suggestions why it hurts or how I can make it better?

    Oh damn, same exact problem. I'm tagging this for later reference.

    Answers and help would GREATLY be appreciated.

    EDIT: This could mean you have a weak, unconditioned wrist. Give your wrist another week of recovery. I'd recommend lifting weights to strengthen all the muscles in your body, but focus more on your wrists since (for us) they're weak. Do wrist curls and reverse wrist curls. Hopefully that helps since thats what I'm gonna do.

    first: stop playing tennis if it hurts.

    second: i'd suggest seeing a wrist specialist to see if you've damaged anything. if it hurts on the pinky side of the wrist it could be some big trouble. thumb side could be just tendonitis. but i'm no doctor just some random guy on a tennis forum.

    third: see a coach and make sure you're form is correct swinging with bad form greatly increases your chance of injury.


    i had a similar issue where it'd hurt and then go away after a while. One day after doing some work around a house it just hurt a lot and didn't stop hurting for a few weeks. Still trying to get it corrected.

    May be it is your coach taught you the wrong form. See a few coaches for second opinion.

    By any chance are you using a light, oversize racquet?

    I'm sorry, but why don't you read the other 20 threads on "Wrist Pain" on this page? Hell, go through all the pages, there are tons of these threads!

    I'm seriously not trying to be an arse, but there is a ridiculous amount of threads on it.

    lol, I searched it and I kept getting the same answers on a lot of threads which was go "go search it up." But that was at that time when I used the search button. My wrist didn't after I think three days after I posted this thread and I still played tennis, so I dunno what happened.
