UKRSA (UK Racket Stringers Association) Professional Stringer
So you've broken a string and need your racket done asap. Here is some general information.
I use an electronic machine (Babolat) . . . so you can always be sure of accurate string tension.
I have a wide range of strings types available . . . but are happy to help you make a decision about what might be best for your game.
That applies to tension as well . . . if you're not sure whether to have a high tension or a low tension, I can advise you.
Here is a rough
idea of what it will cost you:
- around £14 or £16;
- around £14 or £18
- £13 or £15;
- £14 or £16
I can also re-grip your racket for you. Replacement grips vary in price . . . but they are not expensive (from £2 to £5.50), and an overgrip is just £1.50 (see what grips we have here).
Drop your racket off
This is what most people do. Drop your racket (or rackets) off during the day and collect it at your convenience once it's done. Normally, your racket will be ready for collection the following day.
I can do a restring while you wait sometimes
(depending on workload). There is a small extra charge (£5) for this (I have to stop what I'm doing and you get pushed up the list ... bit like going private). How long does it take? Some rackets take longer than others (badminton, for example, often need grommets replacing and can take about 45 mins). There's a retail park nearby, or you can sit and watch me perform miracles on your racket . . . it's up to you. If you want a while-you-wait restring, you need
to contact me and arrange a time (07855 107578).
Sending your racket to me
Many people send me rackets for restringing. Obviously this bumps up the cost, but I am pretty good at it and some people think it's worth it! If you choose this option, simply select the string type you want and the tension, fill in the details and put the racket in the post. When it's done I'll send you my bank details, you do a bank transfer and I send it back to you. The return postage via Parcelforce is £6.
Got your own string? If you already have a set of string that you want me to use, the cost is £10.
