Sheen and Kew stringing service - Jean-Pierre Guillonnet
- All rackets need to be restrung on a regular basis to keep them at peak performance.
- Grips wear out and need to be replaced regularly to ensure mazimum feel and to avoid injuries.
- Grommet strips (the bumper strip on the top of the racket) wear out and can be replaced and should be if necessary. These can be re-fitted for £7.50.
- Our stringer, Jean-Pierre Guillonnet, has access to just about every string available from natural gut, to synthetics and hybrids. Strings are personal and what is good for one player isn't necessarily good for another. Getting the correct tension of strings is also essential. Some like a soft tension, some hard, it depends on your style of play. Your coach and our stringer will advise what suits you best.
