Haven't been able to play tennis for 6 months. Would like to get back to it. I do play pickleball but need to limit some due to back pain. I try to do as much cross training as possible. Including walking, biking, water aerobics, Aqua Zumba and pickleball. Used to do yoga but apprehensive due to some poses causing pain.
