Racket Stringing Services
I am a certified UKRSA professional stringer (i.e. I've done the courses and proved I know what I'm doing!)
I've been stringing rackets for more than 12 years . . . that's a lot of rackets of all shapes and sizes.
Contact us to arrange a restring.
How to get your racket restrung
So you've broken a string and need your racket done asap. Here is some general information.
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.
If you bring the racket to me and collect it yourself, the prices below include restringing - what you see is what you pay. Some people seem to think that is just the cost of the string and still have to pay extra for the restringing . . . no - that's the total price.
Here is a rough idea of what it will cost you:
Tennis - £15 to £20
Squash - £15 to £18
Badminton - £15 to £18
Racketball - £15 to £16
If you already have a set of string that you want me to use, the cost is £10.
Get a grip . . .
It often surprises me how seldom people change grips. A new grip makes a massive difference . . . and they cost next to nothing. I can re-grip your racket for you. Replacement grips vary in price . . . but they are not expensive (£3), and an overgrip is just £1.50.
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 Church Walk nearby, with a bay of shops including Costa & Morrisons. If you want a while-you-wait restring, you need to contact me and arrange a time (07842 731559).
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 £8.
Got your own string? If you already have a set of string that you want me to use, the cost is £10.
