    1. high blood pressure? :eek:
    2. is the hall well ventilated? lack of oxygen.
    3. after serious practice, sit down straight away? lay down immediately? or slow walk around?

    Well, I can't be 100% sure why you're experiencing these dizzy spells. Could it be that you turn too much, and after so much running around, you suddenly stop and feel like vomiting? Consider it like a merry-go-round. In motion, you don't feel that bad, then when you get off, BANG! You've lost your breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.

    For your dizziness, sit down and put your head between your knees. Calm your breathing, you should feel better after a little while.

    are your practices really intense? sometimes after you do a really intense workout, you can feel really dizzy. if you've done suicides and go all out, you know how it feels - dizziness to the point of vomiting. if it's not an intense workout and you feel dizzy, you should definitely check it out with a doctor.

    Hmm... I'm not too sure about this one, :confused::p
    There are quite a number of reason for getting dizzy, kind of vague and hard to see from outside perspective :D

    The only thing I can maybe suggest is start training with low intensity, than GRADUALLY increase intensity until up to what you are capable of (and.or until you get a bit dizzy - but by all means, this is only for solving the problem, not to make it worse/recurring :p:rolleyes:)..

    Maybe that will help isolate the cause of dizziness better for your own personal diagnosis.. :cool:

    All the best, man. :)

    1. lack of blood in your head/upper body
    2. Lack of water.


    had it all the time.

    Most probably dehydration.
    http://www.ehow.com/how-does_5202620_gatorade-cure-headaches_.html
    Solution, drink isotonic water like Gatorade, sportade, 100plus, pocari sweat, etc.

    Your nerves and brain (nerve center) uses electrolytes or salt to provide bio-electricity. Losing water/salt thru dehydration/profuse sweating causes depletion of this bio-electricity, thus the headache.

    Drink more water, preferbly isotonic water.

    As with the others above, it's difficult to come to a completely accurate diagnosis but I know that a while ago, I experienced a similar thing and I know that at that time, I was tired, working hard on court and probably didn't have enough to drink so I would lean towards suggesting dehydration as being a possible cause as well.

    I get this, but I am pretty sure I know the reason.

    I have to take beta blockers daily to prevent migraine and these lower my heart rate and blood pressure. I am pretty sure it is this which causes my dizziness after a hard practice or a match.

    You aren't on any medication which could be a factor, no?

    Dizziness after sport is the symptom after sport/exercise. The cause of it is when not enough blood is pumped back to your heart to get oxygenated.

    Because your blood is pooling in your legs its difficult for it to get back to the heart.

    You need to do cool down exercise to 'muscle pump' your blood back to your heart, so

    a) stretching
    b) jogging for 10minutes

    Actually I just fainted last weekend playing singles. Probably too old. My suspect is head injury happened a few years back. The pain on the head is coming back.

    So be a little careful. Balance is important. Slow or stop if cant take the pressure. ;)

    the best thing to do is to see a doctor and explain your experience. feeling dizzy is no small joke if it keeps happening. hungry or thirsty could be the cause but it's better you seek professional advise before its too late!

    Are u sleeping enough? What are the things u think about on the court? Whats your diet like? Whats the environment like? It really depends on how you start your day cause if you don't eat enough or you don't sleep enough, it will be common that dizziness will kick in after a hard practice. Just remember to relax and drink lots of water.

    Like i said before it is just blood pooling. Its when you are exercising intensively your heart pumps blood around your body. And as blood travel far away from your heart the arteries and veins, capillaries, and venuoles they will have lower blood pressure (unless you are unaware blood pressure is the pressure through your artery and vein) So the blood is accumulated at your legs harder to travel back to your heart.

    Because of gravity so your body will fall down and when your body is flat gravity is 0 so the blood from your leg may travel back to your heart to get oxygen.

    Another method of having your blood to travel back to your heart without having to fall and lay on your back is muscle pumping.

    There are veins in your muscle and when you move your muscle it contracts and flexes causing the blood to travel (what stops the blood from flowing back is valves)

    So a light jog like 10minutes should get you better [​IMG]
