Yes, i always do stretching 5-10 minutes before i play. To avoid injuries for sure. I've seen Japan pro player stretching for more than an hour!

so for years, i've stretched out before my workouts. i remember hearing PJ mention something (maybe on superhuman radio?) about only stretching post workout.
heres something i just pulled off of bodybuilding.com:
Stretch Before your workout isn't the only time you need to stretch. Stretching after exercise is beneficial as
well, and can assist in the healing of micro tears in your muscles. Also,
stretching will help drain lactic acid from the "pumped" muscle and reclaim its
range of motion.
so i've been dealing with the usual aches and pains lately and still taking it somewhat easy after an injury. and i'm wondering if i'm hurting myself by stretching out pre workout?
i know the range of motion type exercises help prior to upper body workout...ie, using 5 lb plates and focusing on rotator cuff, shoulders, chest...

The correct ways:
1.Warm up first and then Stretch.
2.After games/ training, stretch again. ---> the older you get, the more you must not skip this 2 steps, it will help reduced/prevent ache/pain the next morning.

I am a believer in "the best warm up for any activity is the activity itself" albeit MUCH slower. So I do some light drives, then overheard clears but I don't chase dropshots until warmed up. My marathon runner dad swears by weak lager after running, I can't argue with that! I think it helps drain lactic acid or something.

I've never stretched before or after. I usually just ease into the play before going all out! Works for me

I tend to agree with this as well. A gradual warmup with a little stretching mixed in works for me. A couple of laps around the gym to start with is a good idea as well.

start: Warmup with some running and easy suicide drills then dynamic stretching such as lunges, walking calf raises, skipping etc.
End: Static stretching with minimal movement
