Please view the other strings available in the left column, listed by brands.
Strings not listed can be ordered for you, prices upon application. Customer supplying own string only incurs a labour charge of £20.
Change your strings only when they break.
Lower tension and a multifilament string will aid power.
A thinner gauge string with a low to medium tension.
Combinations of monofilament string, especially with a shaped/angled bevel and a string tension tighter than average.
Have a coloured string, two colour options or a rainbow effect to brighten up the frame.
Lower tensions will result in more power and better feel, plus it will lower vibrations transmitted to the arm.
If you want more spin and control then use a higher than average tension.
Use a thicker gauge in a monofilament string at a higher tension to create a regular response to your ball striking.
GRIPS & ACCESSORIES
Change a worn grip when you have your next restring.
Add an overgrip or two to your main grip, or put a replacement grip over the existing one.
Take the main grip off the racket and replace it with one or two overgrips to make the grip size smaller.
Add strips of tape under the grip to shape/contour the grip to your personal specifications.
Add a vibration dampener to the frame and add more padding to the grip to reduce racket vibration to your arm.
Use a tackier overgrip to ensure a firmer grip when striking the ball.
Extend the grip on the racket to allow you to have a double handed grip on your backhand.
I highly recommend Phil's racket stringing service. Not only does he do an excellent job, his turnaround time is incredibly quick. My daughter plays at a very high tennis level and is extremely fussy when it comes to her strings etc, and she is definitely more than happy with the service. A*
Phil provides a fantastic stringing service. He is both knowledgeable and professional. He advised on the various types of strings/tensions/gauges available and their relative merits. His pricing is clear and turnaround time is quick. I thoroughly recommend.
Just to thank you for stringing my tennis rackets so quickly and to the tension I required.
Very good service!!
Great quality stringing service with a same day service. Thank you!
Phil provided an excellent stringing service. He advised on which strings might suit me and had a fast turnaround time. I will use again.
Phil came highly recommended by a fellow stringer, who has recently relocated. I will certainly be asking Phil to restring our rackets from now on: excellent quality, good value and a quick turnaround.
As I have coaching with Phil, I asked him to restring my racket. He did a brilliant job, I could really feel the difference when I played. He also matched the colours to my racket and sorted my grip. Highly recommend his services.
Phil provides a quick and professional stringing service. I have always been very happy with the quality of workmanship. I can highly recommend Phil to anyone looking to get their racquets re-strung.
This was the first time that I have used Phil. I was pleased with the speed with which my racquet was restrung and I have been happy using is since.
So Good to meet up with my tennis coach guru Phil Vivian, best stringer in the South East.
An excellent service which only took a few hours to restring my racquet. I would highly recommend him and it was great to get back my racquet the same day.
Phil is a great coach, many at the club have
commented how I and a friend have improved under his tutelage.
Great restringing service as well with quick turnaround times. Fully recommended.... Thanks for all your help Phil.
