Discount racquet stringing is inexpensive (starting at $20 for string and labour) but comes with very few options. This is recommended for players who just want some string in their racquet. They do not expect their string bed to contribute to their performance.

Custom racquet stringing costs more but it allows players to customize their string bed to enhance their performance. Custom stringing offers a full range of options, including string, colour, tension and turnaround. It comes with a two week warranty and a satisfaction guarantee. Custom turnaround options include:

Discount Racquet Stringing

Players who want discount racquet stringing are required to place their order through our website, print their receipt, wrap it around the handle of their racquet and drop it off at the store.

    I love this option and so I have been using it for me and my kids ever since you broght it in last year. At first was concerned that the string would be cheap, but I can see that it isn’t. I have been playing squash for more than 12 years since and I don’t see no difference other than the colour. And since I am getting my raquet strung so many times (and with the kids to, btw) I feel I am saving $40 or even $50 every month. So thank you.

    This an excellent new option. I used it for my backup which is just a backup and does not require custom stringing.

    This was very good for me. I am not a pro or anything so I don’t need custom. I just want to pay $20.00 for everything. So I am very happy.
