Tennis String Notes

On this page, we provide a little more information for players who like to have a greater understanding about the equipment they use.

String Life

We are not talking about how long strings last, but how they perform over time. All strings play well for the first month, but some are unusable after three months. You need considtency over the life of the strings.

String Tension

As mentioned above the strings will be fine the first few times they are used. Will they still perform well after six months use. Of course, some players break string fairly frequently, which may make this factor less important.

String Gauges

Some strings are available in different gauges and some aren't. There are some advantages with thnner strings, and some players prefer a thicker gauge. Please ask for advice if you are uncertain about which one to use.
