I am a keen player of all racquet sports and have been stringing racquets for more than 40 years.
As well as stringing for the pros at international tournaments, I provide personal racquet stringing services for all levels of players from my workshop in Berwick, Victoria. It is my belief that all players are entitled to have their racquets strung to the highest standard, regardless of their status within the sport.
