It's a given that you're wearing sunscreen while you're playing tennis even during the winter, right? During the warmer months of spring and summer, you're probably even more exposed to the sun since you're wearing fewer layers and shorter sleeves. I wear a lot of racer back tops and find the only way to cover my back and shoulders with sunscreen is to use a spray. I like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock, SPF 70. It sprays easily, even with the can upside down, so I can be sure and cover all the hard-to-reach spots. And it smells kind of nice too. Find a spray sunscreen you like and use it generously. You don't want to be the really great old lady tennis player who ended up with skin cancer.
