Hi All,

I’m just wondering what others are paying for racket restringing, there is very little choice where I live but the one stringer does seem to do good consistent work. Ive never tried mail order stringing but as that would put it above this price anyway there is no need to,

The prices including string is from £20 -25 per racket dependent on string choice, using Yonex strings, located in Berkshire

What does everyone else pay?

Cheers

Adam,

Well in HK it’s about US$10 to 13 depending on string used, but this is HK, the most competitive MEDC in the world.

Back to reality, I think Paul does it for 15 or 20 pounds. I don’t recall it clearly, but it should be those two numbers. He’s been stringing for a huge number of years, and he’s currently stringing for team Victor and one of em’ is an olympic gold medallist. Don’t know if the price has changed since though…

Realistically, I’d expect the price in the UK to be 15 pounds so you’re overpaying a little. But as you said before, it’s a monopoly so he can charge whatever he wants and there isn’t a single thing you can do about it.

Hi Adam,
Up north in Yorkshire I pay between £12 and £16 for a restring using Yonex bg80 or 65ti and that’s with two different UKRSA stringers.

I charge £15 for BG65 or similar and £17 for BG80.

There are many who charge less. I class myself as a professional stringer and therefore charge the right money for the job. I see so many charging £10 and yet I’m pretty certain they won’t be declaring the income and paying tax on their earnings.

Without this sounding bitter or being taking out of context, there are to many amateur stringers who constantly undercut professional stringers. It won’t be stopped but we don’t need more amateurs in racket sports – we have enough.

I don’t worry about others trying to muscle in and sell their stringing services to players at my club. My stringing is very good and I have the credibility that stringing for the world’s best gives me. I don’t play on this much but it’s a nice trump card to hold.

I’ll be writing about my All England adventures very soon.
