Light physical activity for 1 week and don't blow your nose for 1 week too!

Rest and saline nose sprays for five - seven days. Otherwise, likely a bloody volley.

In brief: Tennis and Nosebleed

Would you enjoy volleying with a nosebleed? If so, move ahead.
If not, why not take five days with no strenuous activity. Give the area cauterized a chance to heal with a normal blood pressure. Best to use a saline nasal spray. I always suggest using the saline for two weeks beyond the last traces of blood - to allow time for healing.
