my doubles partner has the same problem and i got hooked on this tendency: buy one of those Dr. Scholl's foot powders and before you put on your sneakers, put lots on ur feet and actually ALSO put some on ur hands:) it works for me too now......

Savannah, Georgia in the summer is usually in the upper 90's with the humidity about the same, so I sweat terribly during matches. Here's what I do:

2 racquets- Which I change every time we switch sides. I leave the handle of the bat I'm not using sticking out of the bag, so the sun might dry it.

Overgrips- If necessary, change them on set breaks.

Rosin Bag- Use it on both your hands, and the stick's grip.

Towel- A separate towel just to wipe the handle of your bat on.

Wrist bands- Wear two on each arm. On your swinging arm it will catch all the sweat dripping down, and on the non-swinging arm it gives you something to wipe your swinging arm's hands on. Change them as needed.

Shirts- Change them often. The sides generally soak last, so there's another place you can wipe your hands.

Another towel- Carry it onto the court with you, and go to it to wipe your hands, arms, etc.

Hope that helps.

..Joe
