Our Earth Day – A FREE restring!

Our Earth Day…to celebrate this years Earth Day (22nd April) we’re giving you the chance to have your racket restrung for FREE in Luxilons latest string…ECO POWER.

Luxilon Eco Power

Luxilon Eco Power is the first string on the market that is made from 100% recycled materials. It offers a durable, heavy duty construction that’s designed for power, spin and control whilst still being forgiving for those delicate drop shots. Being hexagonally shaped the string grips the ball on contact to create additional spin, ideal for the player who wants to level up their game and make a more sustainable choice!


You’ll have to be quick though, we only have 20 sets available and once they’re gone, they’re gone! To give you a little bit more of an opportunity to try this groundbreaking string we’ll be offering a FREE ECO POWER restring on both Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April.

Wilson Triniti Pro

If that wasn’t enough, we’d also like to make sure you’ve got some fresh balls to try out your new strings with so we’ll also give you a tube of Wilson Triniti Pro. Another innovation in the world of tennis that is pushing the limit of sustainability.

Please note: Restrings cannot be reserved, you must drop off your racket on Friday 21st or Saturday 22nd, we may be unable to offer same day restring turnaround and we cannot substitute the string for another option.

Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd each year. The aim is to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970 and is now recognized as the largest secular observance in the world, with over 190 countries participating. On Earth Day, people all over the world engage in activities such as planting trees, cleaning up litter, and organizing events to educate and inspire action to protect the planet..

With over 80 years experience in the racket industry and now very much established as one of the UK’s leading racket specialists, we have good reason to believe that having a restring at Withers goes far beyond just having your strings changed.

Qualified Stringers

Rublev's rackets

Throughout our history we’ve moved with the times, updating our tools and knowledge to keep pace with leading stringing developments and processes.

The stringing team at Withers has received top quality training and restrung thousands of rackets – they provide our customers with the best experience and quality of work possible.

Stringing for Tennis, Badminton, Squash or Racketball

Whether it’s a racket for a top professional or an avid beginner, the care we give each frame; tennis, badminton, squash or racketball, is exactly the same.

As stated, having a restring at Withers goes beyond just the string bed. It’s all the questions that we ask, the recommendations that we suggest beforehand to give you the best options possible and the after sales service as well. It all depends on what you’re after…

  • Would you like power? Spin? Control? Comfort? All of the above?
  • Have you ever suffered from tennis elbow? Frozen shoulders? Arm or wrist pain?
  • Do you have an idea of what tension you would like?
  • Have you just changed racket and aren’t getting on with the factory string?
  • If there are different options of string gauge, offering advice on what would be best for you.
  • Do you need a new grip and grommet strip? We can check your racket and recommend a change if there’s significant wear and tear.
  • Is your racket cracked? We’ll always check your frame over for any potential cracks.

Stringing with care and attention

Once each frame has been taken in, checked over and is ready to be restrung, the techniques and methods that we use help us to give you the best restring possible. Whether it’s better that your racket be strung with 2 knots or 4, from cutting out the strings, cleaning the racket, mounting it in the machine, stringing and weaving techniques, keeping the strings as straight as possible throughout the restring, the tie off knots we use and right the way down to keeping the strings on the outside of the frame as short as possible to help with tension loss. No stone is left unturned.

  • Consistency
  • Accuracy
  • Speed

Electronic Stringing Equipment

Having your racket strung on an electronic stringing machine could make all the difference, compared to having it strung on drop weight machines etc. Electronic machines should (depending on how well you look after them) be pulling tension at exactly what it’s supposed to be. There’s always that scepticism on any other type of machine that it won’t pull up how it’s meant to. If your rackets aren’t being strung to how you want them, then this isn’t very cost effective.

All our machines are fully electronic and are used at ATP and WTA tournaments across the world.

Changing your stringing?

We keep records of all restrings we perform. So, if you would like the same set-up as you’ve had before or alternatively, would like to try something different. We have a reference point that we can work from.

Speed and quality of service

Our turn around time is usually no more than 48 hours and if you need it done on the day, that’s sometimes possible too. It also helps that all of our members of staff, to varying standards, play at local clubs. We have a personal connection and a good working relationship with our customers, so they trust in our knowledge that what we advise is the best option for them.

We pride ourselves on the quality of service that we provide. So what better excuse than to come to the experts who treat your frames as their own.

Withers restring rackets at each of our locations. Our team are rotated where they are working, so if you want a specific stringer it might be worth giving the main shop in Carts Lane a call (Tel: 0116 262 2113) and explaining what (or who) you want.
