No because they are for broken ankles and sometimes they hurt your feet and are hard to walk in. Also they are hard to get into shoes. When you play tennis you have to run a lot and be active, but with the ankle brace on you wont be able to because they are not meant for being active or running and stuff like that! So I suggest that you don't wear the ankle brace while your playing tennis to prevent rolling ankles.... It won't work!!
