What goes on in a tennis try-out?

Platelet alpha granules contain potent growth factors necessary to begin tissue repair and regeneration at the wound site. Concentrated autologous platelets present huge reservoirs of growth factors that have the potential to greatly accelerate the normal healing process, naturally. The use of concentrated growth factors is considered by many to be a "new frontier" of clinical therapy and creates a paradigm shift affecting all segments of the medical profession.
New Standards of Care
Leading clinicians in specialties such as dental, plastic & reconstructive, ENT, otolaryngology, orthopaedic, neurology, cardiovascular, vascular, general, non-healing wounds, and pediatric surgery routinely use concentrated platelets due to their ability to deliver a cocktail of bioactive growth factors. Growth factors shown to enhance the body's natural healing process include:

Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF) initiate connective tissue healing including bone regeneration and repair. PDGF also increases mitogenesis (healing cells), angiogenesis (endothelial mitosis into functioning capillaries), and macrophage activation (debridement of the wound site and second phase source of growth factors).
Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-ß ) increases the chemotaxis and mitogenesis of osteoblast precursors and they also stimulate osteoblast deposition of the collagen matrix of wound healing and bone regeneration.
Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) induce epithelial development and promote angiogenesis.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors (VEGF) have potent angiogenic, mitogenic, and vascular permeability-enhancing activities specific for endothelial cells.

Funny you post this question. I haven't heard of it, but my last bout with my tennis elbow ended yesterday and I am finally pain free after a week of suffering. If this treatment is any good I definitely want to know about it!
