TENNEZ TIPS

Did you know???.....

Racquet strings begin to lose tension 24hrs after being strung.  The amount of loss is dependent on the strings used.

When it comes to restringing, the basic rule of thumb still applies: A player should restring as many times each year as he or she plays each week. Better yet, check the string tension regularly and restring each time the racquet loses 20 to 30 percent of its freshly strung value. If not, it can severely effect your game. 

We track this for you and maintain a record to track performance......free of charge.

A few other general guidelines that you should be aware of include:

bullet

Lower string tensions generate more power.

bullet

Higher string tensions produce more ball control.

bullet

Fewer strings will generally produce more power.

bullet

Thinner string generally produces more power.

bullet

A longer string will generally produce more power.

bullet

Thinner strings generally produce more spin.

bullet

A more open string-bed tends to generate more spin.

bullet

Pre-stretching string before installation will generally reduce the amount of tension loss, after stringing.

Sudden changes in temperature can devastate your string tension.  Keep your racquets out of direct sunlight when sitting in the bag on court.  You can destroy your strings if you put them in the trunk of a car in hot or cold weather. 

Keep an eye on the racquet grommets (the plastic piece that the string goes through in the racquet), as they can cause string breakage if they are broken or dried out. Look for cracks or chips in the grommets.

Racquet grip is a major cause in tennis elbow.  Make sure that you have the correct racquet and grip size for you and your game.  We can help in getting the best racquet for you.

Do you have the right string for your racquet type and playing style???  With over 300+ different string types on the market, this can be a daunting question.  We as a USRSA MRT certified stringers can help you find the best strings for your racquet and playing style.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your racquets, please contact us, we would be glad to help in your racquet needs.
