View Full Version : Sweaty palms when playing tennis

Aug 6th, 2008, 11:26 PM
I'm so pissed I keep getting sweaty palms when I play and I never had this problem before.

I'm toweling off every couple points and I keep losing grip on hard shots and they go flying off the court.

I tried a couple things and nothing has worked.

Any solutions or particular grips that help?

No grips help just try to stay cooled down the best way you can

Hmm isnt there this dry cool spray some players use on their hands? Or how about puttin some pritt stick on your grip :shrug:

You do have a tape on your grip, do you not?

You could try spraying anti-perspirant on your palms.

just a few other ideas:

-wear a wrist band
-put some chalk stuff (I forget what it's called) on your hands to absorb the moisture (do this before you start playing)
-on really hot days, I wear a glove and then put chalk stuff on the glove
