The term “ladies” here refers to adult female recreational players. It does not refer to “young ladies” which we call “juniors” nor does it refer to elite female athletes, who are simply “elite”. All of the strings in this group have been selected by our coaches as suitable for adult female recreational players.
Athletes in this category are rarely frequent string breakers — unless they are loaning their racquets to their sons, husbands or boyfriends. Therefore we usually recommend 17 gauge tennis string. Those who are frequent string breakers may want to move up to 16 gauge string. Those who really need additional power may want to try 18 gauge string.
