What Our Members Are Saying
“Wish I had done the course a long time ago“
As a tennis coach I attended the Tennis Stringer course for the nine CPD points but my huge regret is that I waited so long. I now understand what actually happens when the ball meets the strings and this has enhanced my coaching. Plus, I am earning more!
David from Essex
“Top class Professional Staff Training was the key to our success”
As a leading Sports Shop we soon realised that customers returned for a first-class stringing service. Our stringing teams also benefit from the post-course technical advice and problem fixing.

“I LOVE badminton but could not find a good stringer!”
Cracked frames, early string breakages eventually pushed me to attending a course and its opened up a whole new world of understanding of the sport I love. The tutors make everything so easy to do and the time flew by! My only problem now is having too many friends who want me to spend all my time stringing THEIR rackets!
GB Professional player Katy.
“Great for us parents with string-breaking kids!“
My son plays tournaments and there was always a pile of rackets in the hall that needed restringing. I could not find the stringing service needed, so decided to attend a course. What a wise decision! I learned from experienced tournament stringers who were able to show me exactly what is needed at tournament level. They advised me on getting a suitable machine and would recommend any parent to do that. Saves us a fortune as well!
