Racket Stringing Service

Top Quality Stringers

We have ERSA trained stringers (European Racquet Stringers Association) and a Yonex UK professional stringing team member that string on site. We use top brand strings from Yonex, Babolat, Head, Wilson, Luxilon, Tecnifibre, Prince and more.

We can offer Expert advice on the String and the string tension that suits both yourself and your racket. We will always work to get your racket back to you as soon as possible and we can offer the same day service but we do normally charge for this. Normal turnaround time is around 48 hrs.

We also have a racket diagnostic machine which can be used to identify places to customise your racket by adding weight in the correct position that suits what you are looking to achieve. We offer racket re-gripping, re-grommeting and all-round racket service work.

Withers String your rackets using Top of the Range Equipment

Currently we use two electronic stringing machines, a Yonex PROTECH8 (our latest acquisition, this is located at our main branch in the city centre) and a Wilson Baiardo Touch Screen. These are two state-of-the-art pieces of equipment, arguably the ‘best machines in the market’ at the moment.

Top Quality Service & Speed of Response

We keep records of the tensions and string types you have used so you can get a ‘repeat restring’ without fuss. However, if you think you are not getting the best from your current ‘set-up’, or your strings seem to break more frequently than you would like, then our expert staff will also be happy to advise. A change of either (or both) string type or tension can give your racket a new lease of life.

We aim to complete all stringing within 48 hours. Often we are able to string within 24 hours and on occasion we can offer a ‘while-you-wait’ re-stringing service (this may be subject to an additional charge). Saturdays are usually our busiest day and we are generally unable to offer a same day stringing service on the weekend – but you can always ask, you never know!

Sometimes you find that your racket isn’t feeling as good as it should. It isn’t always just ‘stringing’ which is needed. Occasionally, the buffer/head protection guard needs replacing or the grip is affecting performance and feel. Our staff are always on-hand to advise.

Racket Tuning Service

Every Racket the Same

Withers use the Prince Racket Diagnostic Centre (Prince Precision Tuning Centre) to measure the 3 most critical characteristics of a racquet:

  • weight
  • balance
  • swing weight

With this equipment we can ensure that your rackets are identical. No more ‘favourite’ racket. Each one can now feel and play exactly the same – unless of course you, like the pros, have different stringing tension or types to suit different conditions.

So, now there is no excuse – tennis, squash and rackets players across the midlands will see their consistency rocket!
