A total of 60 participants 16 (26.67%) of the cases were male and 14 (23.33%) were female whereas 20 (33.33%) of the controls were male and 10 (16.67%) were female.6.7% of the affected respondents have at least some primary education. 21.67% (n=13) cases and 30 % (n=18) control were lived in urban area and 28.33% (n=17) case and 20% (n=12) control were from rural area. The factors significantly associated with the development of Tennis Elbow were overuse hand (OR 5.6875; 95%CI, 1.59-20.33), Weight lifting by hand(OR 1.643;95%CI, 1.52-5.12), Recurrent Injury (OR 18.308; 95%CI, 3.67-91.22), Smoking (OR 3;95%CI, 1.05-8.6).Conclusion:The important way for prevention of Tennis Elbow including the modification of over use of hand and weight lifting for reduce risk factors and it is also important to take comprehensive preventive measures like sports by modification of the working position and correction the hand during playing and the daily living activities. en_US
