When do I restring?

Just because your strings aren’t broken doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be replaced.  Over time, strings will lose their intended playing properties.

  • Your racquet should be strung as many times a year as you play in a week. 
    • If you play tennis 2 times a week, then your racquet should be restrung at least 2 times a year.
  • When you feel you have lost control of your shot. 
    • As the tension in your racquet decreases, the result is more power and loss of control, often referred to as the “trampoline effect”.  If you notice your shots consistently being hit long; your strings have become too loose and your racquet should be restrung.
  • When your strings look frayed or worn.
    • Strings break down due to friction caused when they more over each other.  Get your racquet restrung before they break during a big match.
Still not sure?  Let one of our expert stringers help you make the right choice and keep you playing at the top of your game.
