As a general rule you should re-string each year as often as you play per week. If you play twice per week, you should restring your racket twice per year. All strings gradually stretch and lose their resiliency or go dead, even if you play infrequently. When this happens you begin to swing harder, grip the racket tighter to get the same results from the ball.
Swinging harder and gripping tighter makes control more difficult, fatigue arrives early and may even contribute to tennis elbow. fresh strings help your racket play the way it was intended to play. If you have any question about rackets or restringing please stop by the Aspen Hill Pro shop. Tim will be glad to assist with your needs. Tim is a member of USRSA, a Master Racket
Technician, the Yonex National Stringing Team, and the USPTR.
