Dress in Layers
Since temps can go from high to low and back to high in the matter of an hour, it’s best to dress in layers that you can pull off and on while you play. Wear leggings beneath your tennis skirt or shorts. Pull a long sleeve shirt over your tank top or a warm jacket over a t-shirt.

Buy Moisture-Wicking Clothing
There’s nothing more detrimental to your health and wellbeing than being wet when the temps take a nosedive. Moisture-wicking apparel keeps sweat away from your skin, so that you stay warm even when it’s cold and you are perspiring. And it also keeps you comfortable. Your first layer of clothing should be moisture wicking.
Pack a Hat
You lose body heat fast without a hat. Keep a beanie or cap with you at all times and don’t hesitate to put it on when it gets chilly out. Cool off quick when the day goes from crisp to hot by simply taking your cap off.
Wear Bright Colors
The autumn months tend to be darker. Wear clothes that are bright or have reflective striping on them, especially if you are out late. This is a key tip for staying safe, especially when you are off the court between games.
