Why does your arm hurt when you play tennis?

It could be that you are using too heavy of a racquet, or even too light of a racquet. If you are using too heavy of a racquet, then you are using your full force to just swing the racquet to hit the ball. If you are using too light of a racquet, then you are using all of your power just to return the ball because the racquet doesn't provide enough resistance to hit it back. It could also be that you are using improper form. Improper form leads to hurting arms, especially tennis elbow and hurt wrists. If you are only using your arms and not moving the rest of your body into position, that could be the reason your arm hurts - your form requires that your arm does all of the work.

What size tennis racquet works best?

The size of tennis racquet you choose is really a personal preference. Basically, tennis racquets come in a mid-size and oversize. The mid-size racquet has a smaller tennis face and less surface area of tennis strings. Mid-size racquets are more compact and usually lighter. They are easier to swing and move around quickly. Serve and volley type players often prefer the smaller mid-size racquet. An oversize racquet has a large surface area of tennis strings. This can make the racquet feel heavier and it is more difficult to swing the racquet around quickly. However, the "sweet" spot on the racquet is larger. The sweet spot is where you want the ball to hit your strings more maximum effectiveness. Players that hug the baseline tend to enjoy using an oversize racquet. You can always "demo" different racquets at your tennis club to see which size is best for you. Your tennis pro can also give you great reccomendations.
