Rackets & Re-strings

I have been a Babolat ambassador coach since 2008 and have a retail link with Crosby and Lawrence in Marlborough.

If you are member of Royal Wootton Bassett Tennis Club you will receive a 10% discount on all goods. I have a Demo bag of Babolat rackets (adult & junior) for you to try before you buy.

We have junior and adult rackets available and a full range of tennis accessories. We have partnered with Babolat, the leading manufacture of tennis equipment worldwide, to ensure we are supplying our members with the best equipment possible to achieve their tennis goals. Please contact one of the coaching team for more information on prices and for equipment recommendations.

Our superfast restringing service supplies a range of strings, from basic to professional. The coaching team will work with all players to get the correct tension and string for their game, and to ensure they are achieving the best performance from their racket.  Read through our description of the different strings available below and then contact Ali. Rackets can be dropped off for stringing any time.

Recommendations from the coaching team:

  • If you play once a week, you should restring your racket once a year; if you play twice a week, then restring every 6 months to keep good tension
  • If you play once a week, you should change your grip once a month as a minimum. A slippery grip will have a huge impact on where the ball goes; so invest £3-£8 to play your best tennis.
