How often should I restring my racket?
Tennis pros restring their rackets everyday! Depending on how much you play, what type of strings you use and your personal preferences, you may restring every few times you play or once a year. The frequency of your racket restrings does affect your play! Over time tennis strings lose tension. As the tension on your racket declines, you will see a considerable impact on your game. As the tension on your strings loosens, the strings stretch even more. This creates a cushion for the ball which minimizes the squashing effect. This cushion causes the ball to lose a lot of energy!
Additionally, if your racket string tension is constantly changing, you will have to constantly adjusting your stroke to compensate. Consistency is the key. Re-stringing on a regular basis will help improve your stroke!
