Racquet Stringing

I generally charge $20 for labor ($15 for juniors), plus the cost of string. I have several popular strings in stock ranging from synthetic gut to polys. Contact me for string tension, turn-around time and pricing. Osseo Tennis Booster Club provides free string (Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex 16) for Osseo High School players. I can do one- or two-piece stringing and can provide a number of hybrid combinations. I mainly use a Prince Neos 1000 stringing machine. I'm able to fix most broken grommets, or assist in finding replacements. Contact me for more information.
