    limp off a place

    Does "limp off a place" mean you leave a place by walking in a slow/awkward way?

    Probably, but more context would help. What has happened immediately before the limping off?

    Yes. At the beginning of the match, the players walked on court. Later, one of them limped off court.
    He left the court with a limp.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
