Whether you’re looking for tennis racquet stringing or service on a different style of racquet, the Racquet PROS at DICK’S Sporting Goods are certified to perform custom stringing on your new purchase or restring your trusted racquet to get it back in shape. Restringing ensures your game remains in peak form. You may feel that your racquet is losing its “punch” at the net.
Tennis stringing machines have mounting racks at different points that are used to keep the racket in place while you string it. Your racket head size will vary, but that’s why stringers are adjustable to accommodate varying head sizes. It’s rare to find a stringer that doesn’t have this feature.

A Few Things to Know. We strung the racquet in our video with a two-piece stringing method because the vast majority of racquets can be strung using this method. String sets are sold in 40-foot lengths. Most racquets can be strung with a single set.
We carry tennis strings in many different lengths, including half sets, single racquet full sets, 330-foot reels and 660-foot full reels (strings 8 and 16 racquets, respectively). To learn more about specific types of string, visit our string technology page.
When it comes to tension, the general rule is to string elastic materials like nylon or natural gut around 50-60lbs, which we’ll use as our base recommended tension. If using a stiffer string material like polyester, we’d recommend stringing looser to avoid arm injuries.

What is the string tension of a tennis racquet? String tension is used to determine the weight required to tension the string on either side of the racquet frame. The string tension is usually between 20 and 30 kilograms. Some players use extreme string tensions from 9kg to 42kg to surprise their opponents with ball spin.
