Best Ankle Braces For Tennis


Tennis involves a lot of repetitive footwork, and this combined with fatigue can increase your risk of injury.

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support such as the MalleoTrain can minimise your chances of injury when you’re stopping and starting on the court.

Bauerfeind Ankle braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.

Some common forms of ankle injuries when playing tennis include ligament tears and sprains, Achilles Tendonitis and stress fractures.

If you are recovering from an ankle injury, Bauerfeind ankle braces for recovery offer solutions for each indication such as Achilles heel, mild to severe ankle sprains. 

Bauerfeind Ankle Supports and Braces provides extra support that will help to stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to serve, volley, smash a ball and win your next set.

Customers are 3D measured in-store to ensure the perfect fit for their ankles. Bauerfeind is the only ankle and knee brace supplier in Australia to provide 3D scanning prior to purchasing a brace.

    "My recent purchase of an ankle support was for my 12-year old granddaughter who also had a strain to her Achilles tendon. She is an active ballet student who does over 15 hours dancing per week. Her ankle meant that she was not able to dance. With a little rest and by wearing the ankle brace for a week or so, she is now back to her ballet." - Stuart B.

Bauerfeind braces help in stabilising the foot and improving proprioception. Bauerfeind Ankle braces can be worn to provide pain relief and protection during sporting activities. 



    In tennis, your ankles help with sudden movement changes as well as supporting the weight of your body, so it is prone to injury. Overuse or straining can lead to instability issues.



    • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
    • Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a graft of tissue, as the ligament will not typically heal properly otherwise. Surgery is minimally invasive, however it can take time for the tear to heal.
    • Achilles Tendonitis. Symptoms of Achilles Tendonitis such as pain and swelling above the heel often occurs in people whom have hiked for prolonged periods due to constant loading on the ankle. Adequate rest and non-surgical treatments can usually relieve these symptoms.
