I run a racket restringing service at Westcliff Hardcourt Tennis Club. My service covers Westcliff-on-sea, Leigh-on-sea, Southend-on-sea and the surrounding areas and is available to both club members and non-members alike. I have restrung thousands of tennis rackets during my career an am a competent stringer. I ran a business importing and distributing tennis strings for over 10 years so know a lot about tennis strings and how different strings play.
All the restrings I do are carried out using a state of the art Gamma electronic stringing machine, which can tension a racket to the nearest ⅒ of a pound. Rackets can be turned around in 24 hours on request.
Contact me on 07948 726309 or [email protected] to have your racket restrung by me.
Here is some information on tennis strings designed to help you make an informed choice:
Polyester strings have grown in popularity over recent years. Why? Because they provide both durability and playability in equal measure.
Nylon strings don’t offer the same durability or tension-holding qualities of polyester, but they offer tremendous range of playing characteristics.
Natural gut is still the Rolls Royce of tennis strings…if you can afford it.
A hybrid is a combination of two strings.
Composite tennis strings are constructions where different grades of nylon, and sometimes other materials, are wrapped around a monofilament and fused together.
