We will once again offer a Professional Stringer course during the British Open Squash Championships. Its a great chance to learn how to string to a professional standard, gain the certification and if a tennis coach then you get the 12 CPD points. A long day from 9am through to 9pm, lots to do but very enjoyable. Suitable for complete beginners wishing to get the basics of racket servicingo, or for experienced stringers wishing to upgrade their skills and knowledge and hopefully achieve the Professional Stringer certification. All racket sports catered for. Pre-course technical information will be sent once payment is made. Plenty of free parking and good local facilities.
A UKRSA Professional Stringer course involving 12 hours of learning, over two normal days. It covers all aspects of racket servicing. By the end of the course each person will have the skills, knowledge and confidence to set up their own stringing business. Its an ideal way for absolute beginners to start off or for experienced stringers to check their skills and knowledge, plus gain the certification.
We start at 9.00am and finish at 5.00pm each day. After tea/coffee and course introduction, its straight into the practical stringing work, all very informal and no “final exam” at the end.
You can bring along any racket you want to string, however we will have plenty of rackets and everything else you will need for the weekend.
But don’t forget to bring pen and paper to make plenty of notes!
