Re-stringing your racquet can be a great way at improving your game for relatively little expenditure. 

How do I know if my racket needs restringing?

Check whether any of the strings have frayed. A frayed string will be close to breaking; there's no point risking a string break during a game.

A loss in string tension is another reason to consider restringing. A loss in tension will reduce the amount of control and power you are able to generate which will affect the performance of the racket.

Signs your strings have lost tension:

  • Your racket is beginning to feel 'dead' or lifeless
  • You are having to swing harder to get the ball to go deeper
  • You make good contact with the ball but aren’t getting as many solid contacts
  • The sound has changed when making contact with the ball
  • Excessive string movement

How often should I have my racket restrung?

There are various guides but we would reccomend the following;

  • 1. Have your racket restrung after every 40 hours of play.
  • 2. Have your racket restrung depending on how often you play.
