Mike only stocks and uses the best tennis strings on the market. Any string can be ordered in within 24 hours. Mike is a level 4 Senior Club Coach and can recommend the right string and tension to take your game to the next level. If you are suffering from tennis elbow, Mike has lots of tips and tricks to hopefully cure it for you.
Most noteworthy, a free overgrip is included with every restring, and each racket is cleaned and then wrapped in a polythene bag. No where else provides this service. It will come back like a new racket much to the dismay of your opponent.Prices start from £15 for a top quality synthetic gut string which is suitable for almost every level of player. A top of the range multifilament is only £20. Polyester hybrids vary between £18 – £20. As a result these prices are much cheaper than local sports shops because they are charging £25 for a synthetic gut in most cases.
All restrings are stored on a database along with the tension recorded. Mike has an ERT 300 computer which can measure and track tension loss at anytime. Therefore this can help you decide when it is time to next restring. Unfortunately strings lose tension over time even when not being used. Hence this device can come in handy for competitive players.
