Brief Answer:
Need Electrolyte solutions, warmup and frequent breaks

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

You need to have Electrolyte rich fluids and plenty of water before your game .

Drink Gatorade or Lemonade.

Do warmup exercises before your game as this will reduce the incidence of muscle injuries especially Rotator cuff muscles.

The more breaks you take the better for your endurance because the muscles need their recuperation and adequate blood supply.

Eat high protein diet. Keep well hydrated.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
