Yes, at our clinic we also feature a string replacement service, where the student will give their racket to Coach Seydou, letting him know what brand of strings they’d like to be on the racket, and the amount of tension. If you are unsure about either the brand of strings or the amount of tension, we can help you understand the difference between things such as high tension and low tension. 

​Racket strings replacement is provided with high quality string for durability. A string is usually replaced when broken. To keep a good tension, a string needs to be replaced after being on the racket for some time. That prevents players for losing their good feelings when playing. New strings need to be put on rackets approximately 2 months when not broken.

The charge for string replacement is $ 35 and $ 15 when you bring your own strings.

String Tension

The higher the tension of the strings on the racket the more control the player will be able to have over the ball, this is between 58 and 60 lb tension. The tension on the strings deciphers how much energy is absorbed by the strings, since lower tension strings stretch more on impact, more energy is returned increasing power, while decreasing control. So having high tension will also decrease the amount of power you are generating. It is recommended that your racket tension is between 50 to 55 lbs, which is a balance between low tension and high tension.

String Types

Polyester is a stiff and durable string material, originally intended for use by frequent string breakers. It took the string time to become popular, primarily due to its poor tension holding capability. However, players feel they are able to apply more topspin to balls while maintaining control with polyester strings.

Originally, natural gut tennis strings were primarily made from sheep gut, or more specifically, the innermost layer of sheep intestine called the mucosa. This is not recommended due to the animal cruelty around the strings.

Is typically a value string that is most economical for its comfortability. The comfort level makes this string feel similar to a multifilament, but without the fraying. This is generally not recommended for competitive players as the strings are not natural, and they break easily which is unusable for competitive players. Made of nylon, synthetic gut is a basic solid core string that is enclosed by one or more wraps to enhance performance.
This string is a great all-around alternative to natural gut and is the best tennis string for the majority of non-professional players. Synthetic Gut provides an ideal combination of playability and is also one of the most affordable string materials available.
