UKRSA 2023 workshop – Solihull 11th March
Hi all, we have – finally – managed to arrange an excellent venue for the next UKRSA Workshop, followed next day by the Racket Customising course.
The first Workshop we ran, in Milton Keynes was a great success. It was so good for the members to be able to meet up at last, put faces to names and also learn a few things. Last time round we had the Marketing session run by Paul Stewart and I was glued to my seat as that man knows just about everything there is to know about how to make sure that your skills and knowledge are properly advertised and presented. Makes no difference whether its stringing, customising or coaching, presentation and delivery in a professional manner is the key to keeping a good customer base.
This is also your chance to chat about your stringing business and share experiences. Its a 9.15 am start with coffee and then a 5pm finish. There will also be an evening session to cover Tournament Stringing, led by David Hall. Anyone already involved in the tournaments or who wish to become involved, this is for you.
The Workshop will be focused on all aspects of stringing – machines, strings, grips and you will have your chance to play around on the new Dunlop 3.0 machine. A good chance to ask questions on all aspects of racket servicing. We are also looking for new course tutors, so don’t be shy! We will be running more Course Tutor training courses later on in Frinton. We will have a good natter re what YOU want from the UKRSA and whether we need to make any changes.
If you have any equipment that you wish to sell then do bring it along. I will be bringing two manual machines to sell, plus bundles of spare strings.
The cost for the day will be just £60 and this will include all refreshments, your lunch and probably enough freebies to cover your cost!
Next day is the (separate) certificated Racket Customising course and your chance to learn about how to alter a rackets weight, swingweight and balance, how to match up rackets for specs, make adjustments to handles, grips and take frames apart. We will have a selection of machines to use, including the Dunlop Swingweight and the Prince Precision Tuning Centre, plus balance boards and lead flying everywhere. Mostly it will be tennis rackets but we also want to include squash and badminton rackets. Certificates awarded at the end of the day. Cost is £199.00. 9.15am through to 5pm. To include lunch and refreshments. To pay for the Workshop or Racket Customising course you can click & pay on the website event or contact me direct to book and pay on [email protected]
The Solihull Arden club has been chosen for its central location, excellent facilities and already a UKRSA Stringing Service in operation! https://solihullarden.co.uk/
Myself, David Hall and Paul Stewart will be welcoming you on either or both days, Liam
