Here's a little bit from Karen and Mark Goodman, owners of Top Spin, on the services they provide:
'Top Spin Tennis are a friendly, family business combining excellent 'old fashioned' customer service within a modern Internet environment. Our business is based around advising our customers on the best products for them and we are very proud of our ever growing repeat customer base.
Created in 2003, Top Spin Tennis have quickly grown to become East Anglia's largest racket sports business where you can touch, try on or 'wave around' our rackets, clothing and shoes as well as get expert advice on their application, use and maintenance. Please feel free to pop in and say 'Hi' to any one of the team - Karen, Mark, Sarah, Sarah, Annie, James, Tom, Tom, David, Ryan, Natalie, Daniel, Lucy, Ben and Pippa - phew!
All members of the team are racket sports players, many up to county standard and beyond so they truly understand the products and services we sell and how they relate to keen rackets sports players of all abilities. We want you to be delighted with the interaction that you have with us either face-to-face or online.'
Karen and Mark Goodman (the owners) have a passion for racket stringing and are both Master Racket Technician qualified (MRT) stringers. They demand the highest quality stringing from all their staff, all of which are trained to 'grand slam' standards. We only use top quality stringing equipment as well – we currently have:

- Pan Pacific Open in Japan (2013)

- Many Babolat-LTA sponsored tennis events
Sales and Service
Most Internet shops simply want to ship large volumes of products, often with not much time to spend on custom stringing and customisation.
We are different.
We believe these extra services are as important as the product you buy. We order most of our rackets unstrung which we custom string to your own specification (included in the price). We can even customise your rackets to ensure that you are buying a matched pair or to increase the weight of any specific racket. We want to add real value to your purchases rather than just be 'sucked into' the spiralling 'price war' which many companies now seem to be embroiled in.
Please feel free to contact us for any advice on rackets, clothing, shoes, balls, accessories and more.
