Many people do not realise the importance of adding quality strings to their racket. People spend a lot of money buying a new racket only to find that the manufacturers normally put cheap monofilament strings in it. (Harrow string their better rackets with Ashaway strings). They will use the racket for a number of months and get used to the cheaper strings. When the strings finally break and they have a quality re-string, many times the comments will be:
Wow, I didn’t realise the strings make such a difference. I have so much more control of the ball!
Remember — the ball makes contact with the strings not the frame (normally)!
Squash String Tension
Racket strings and tension give a compromise between power, spin (control) & durability. The tension in the strings is a personal preference and you need find what tension is suited to your game. Squash rackets tend to be restrung between 25lbs and 30lbs.
- More Power — Less tension (25lbs)
- More Spin — Higher tension (30lbs)
- Both power & Spin — 28lbs
How often should I have my racket restrung?
Racket string manufacturers recommend that you restring your racket the same number of times in a year that you play each week. (i.e. if you play 3 times a week, restring your racket 3 times a year). Racket strings lose their tension and elasticity after playing for a while so it is important to have a racket restrung.
Below are prices for some popular strings. However, we can restring your racket with other strings; please contact us for more information.
