Getting back into it

After 20 years of playing tennis I unfortuntley had to stop playing due to tennis elbow. This was about 5 years ago and I am really starting to miss it, especially as my young daughter is showing signs of wanting to play.

I am thinking of getting back into it and am after any tips to help limit any damage/pain to my elbow?

The racquet I was using at the time I stopped playing was a Yonnex Rdis 100. I am wondering how this compares to more modern racquets? Should I be looking to update?

To begin with I will only be looking to play once a week and most likely doubles as I do not want to over do it.

Thank you for any help you can offer

Your RDiS 100 should still be just fine. I'd recommend something like Tecnifibre Multifeel which is a very comfortable multi that offers some nice spin and control without breaking the bank.

If you'd like to try a new racquet a great place to start would be with the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 (310):

It is a very similar spec and you should feel right at home with it. If you want something a little more forgiving you could go with the lighter and easier to swing 100sq. in version:
