Stringing guide

How do I know if my racket needs restringing?

Check whether any of the strings have frayed. A frayed string will be close to breaking.

A loss in string tension is another reason to consider restringing. A loss in tension will reduce the amount of control and power you are able to generate which will affect the performance of the racket.

Signs your strings have lost tension:

How often should I have my racket restrung?

Racket Stringer recommends:

Number of times you play per week 1 - 2 3 4 5 +
When you should restring every 6 months every 4 months every 3 months every 2 months

It is worth noting that different types of string lose tension at different rates. A polyester string such as Luxilon Big Banger Original will lose tension faster than a synthetic gut string such as Head Synthetic Gut PPS. Your style of play will also affect the lifespan of your strings.
