Ana visits Withers Intersport

It was a real pleasure to welcome Ana Ivanovic and Yonex to Withers Intersport, Ana was in the Carts Lane shop for approx 45 mins talking to everyone, signing posters and goods AND smiling all the time. She was a real professional and a credit to both Yonex (who hosted the event) and Tennis.

Thank you Yonex and Ana

Sports Shops in Leicestershire

Sometimes we have visitors to our two shops in Leicester (Main shop in Carts Lane and club shop at Leicestershire Lawn Tennis Club) who are looking for something we don’t have in stock. While we are happy to raise an order to meet such needs, and you might be surprised how quickly we can get it, we are always happy to recommend other stores if they are not satisfied we our time-scale or if we cannot supply their request.

You might also be surprised to hear that we are happy to give a brief run-down of the other sports retailers we know in Leicester(shire). Satisfying our customers is always our number one priority!

So, for those who are looking for the same sort of information online please see our summary of the Leicester sports shops / retailers. We apologise to any we have missed or for whom we have been a little simplistic in our summary…

Try before you buy on rackets using our new Hitting Wall

We have been talking about it for a while but at last it is here – the new hitting wall at Withers Intersport, Leicester.

This young hopeful tried out a couple of Babolat rackets and ended up buying (well Mum did) the Babolat Pure Drive Lite because it felt better!

Specialist Racket Centre – Withers, Leicester

Our “Hitting Wall” will be one of only a few in the UK . It will give Racket Players the opportunity to try out their Racket in store . It is 6m by 3m in size and has been supported by Wilson Tennis.

This “Hitting Wall” , along with our NEW Racket Diagnostic Centre will give us a unique and real Specialist feel. There is no other racket shop (or general sports shop) in the Midlands that offers this combination.

The Racket Diagnostic Machine offers the Player the chance to customise their Racket(s), we can match rackets’ weight and balance, we can make your “Favourite Racket” a thing of the past as we can make your spare identical”.


Racket Diagnostic Centre

Racket-Tuning-CentreWe have recently invested in a new Prince Racket Diagnostic Centre (Prince Precision Tuning Centre). This will enable us 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!
