Why we made this

The most common tennis injury: Ankle sprains

Sports injuries can take you away from playing tennis and other physical activities you love. A report from the International Tennis Federation says a sprained or rolled ankle in tennis is the most common injury.


Another report found that tennis ankle sprains were the most common serious injury.


A study published in the National Library of Medicine found that in tennis, sprained ankles accounted for 30.2% of injuries.


According to the Journal of Athletic Training, 70% of individuals who sustain an acute ankle sprain may develop residual physical disability, including chronic ankle instability.

We built the best tennis ankle brace based on science, not tradition

Tennis demands peak performance, and traditional ankle braces are designed to hold you back. The BetterGuard was co-developed with professional athletes and leading sports medicine experts. It's engineered for dynamic ankle support that adapts to your every move, so you can unleash your full potential on the court.
