FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How often should I have my racquet restrung?

How often should I have my racquet restrung?
This will vary depending on the ability and sensitivities of a player, but as a general rule, you should probably restring your racquet at least as many times per year as you play per week. For example, a person who plays three times a week should restring their racquet at least three times a year, even if they haven't broken. Some players may choose to restring more often out of personal preference, or may be forced to if they are regular string breakers.

Does string really matter that much?

The performance benefits of a high performance racquet can be greatly diminished if you aren't replacing the strings often enough or are using the cheapest string possible. The strings are the only component that make contact with the ball, and thus they need to be able to carry the full performance of the racquet to the ball. Different strings can also emphasise or improve different qualities of the racquet to find a balance that best suits you.

I want more power, should I increase my tension?

Definitely not, increased tension will decrease power. You will need to decrease your tension to achieve this. This is because of the "trampoline effect", which in simple terms means that the more the strings are able to move, the more elastic energy they can impart on the ball, similar to how a trampoline with more flex enables you to bounce higher.

Why don't my strings get more powerful as they lose tension over time?

This is because strings not only lose their tension over time, but they also lose their resilience (their ability to "spring back"), which means they do not resist the impact of the ball and thus impart less elastic energy (the "trampoline effect" diminishes).

I have a wrist/elbow/shoulder injury, will this affect what strings/tensions I can use?

Depending on the severity of your injury, you may want to avoid higher tensions or strings made of harder materials (eg. polyester) in order to reduce harsh vibrations as well as the effort required to hit the ball. Our staff can advise you on how to adapt your string setup to suit.
