A good game of tennis demands you to be quick, agile, and ready to assume any position to strike that perfect shot. However, short, sharp movements will eventually begin to take their toll on not only your feet, but all the joints and muscles that are responsible for keeping you flexible and mobile.
Here, we talk you through the common injuries associated with this popular sport, and how you can prevent many of them from occurring simply by wearing our affordable insoles for tennis shoes!
Why should you wear insoles in your tennis shoes?
Wearing our OrthoSole insoles in your regular footwear will go some way to preventing intense or ongoing strain from damaging the delicate tendons and ligaments in your feet. In turn, these innovative inserts will help to keep debilitating injuries at bay.
Every time you strike the ground, the impact sends a shockwave through your feet, ankles, knees, and the rest of your musculoskeletal system. Your body is designed to absorb some, but not all of this stress – so if you repeatedly hammer your feet into the ground in pursuit of the ball, you are very likely to cause significant wear and tear to these areas over time. The extra support delivered by our tennis insoles alleviates some of the pressure on your feet and ankles, and reduces your chances of developing ankle sprains, ‘tennis toe’, calf strain, stress fractures, and other foot-related conditions like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.

The benefits of our tennis insoles
Wear our orthotic insoles in your regular tennis shoes for:
- Enhanced cushioning
The unique metatarsal pads and arch pieces supplied with every pair of OrthoSole tennis insoles add much-needed structure to the undersides of your feet. They also provide extra protection to the balls of each foot.
- Fully tailored support
Our insoles for tennis players are unique in that they can be completely adjusted to meet your own requirements. Simply experiment with different combinations of our Light, Medium and Firm pieces to achieve your best fit.
- Incredible shock absorption
The layer of PORON® that lines every OrthoSole insole boasts incredible impact resistance. This material absorbs the added stress that standing, walking and exercising can place on your feet.
- Extra stability
Our insoles’ arch pads are designed to support overpronation and supination, two common alignment problems that can cause damage to your feet, ankles and lower limbs over time. The metatarsal pads improve weight distribution, too.
- Complete comfort
Lightweight, breathable and manufactured to slip seamlessly into any training shoe, our tennis insoles will provide immediate relief. There is no ‘breaking-in’ period; as long as you’re wearing the correct combination of pads and pieces, you’ll feel comfortable straightaway!
