Transition to indoor tennis

Posted on October 17, 2014 in Tennis Life

The indoor season just started in a lot of European countries and therefore I would like to focus a little bit on the “going indoors” topic. The article focuses on footwear as I believe you can do a lot of good and bad by choosing the “right” or “not so right” products.

If you are mostly playing on carpet without granulate material on the surface, you should be looking for a pair of shoes with a flat outsole. This will help you avoid getting stuck or even injured. If you are playing in indoor facilities with carpet and granulate material, you can use tennis shoes with regular outsoles. It may be better to use hard court outsoles rather than clay court outsoles that can sometimes be too sticky and aggressive. However, please make sure to use tennis shoes that still have a profile and are not completely worn off from playing them all summer! From time to time, it does make sense to invest in your footwear for the winter season.
