Sports nutrition for tennis

Playing tennis during hot summer months can be a challenge nutritionally.

What to eat? and when? in order to maximise strength and power is something that I get lots of questions about particularly from the parents of younger athletes who maybe still growing.

Sports Dietitians Australia offer this very informative fact sheet to help athletes and parents and this one on tennis might really help you too.
