Tennis Racquet Stringing Service
We at the Bauerfeind Performance Center are proud to be able to offer tennis stringing services to our customers using the Wilson Baiardo Stringing Machine with its BEST (Biomechanically Efficient Stringing Technology) system. We offer a selection of Wilson natural gut and synthetic multifilament strings in store, in addition to a variety of Wilson tennis racquets and grips. We specialize in stringing services for players who are dealing with wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries. Our staff’s understanding of upper extremity biomechanics allows us to provide our clients with racquet and string recommendations based on the science of injury.
The Science of Stringing
String type affects the amount of vibration transmitted to the hand and arm. Natural gut or nylon strings with multifilament composition help dampen vibration within the string. This makes them more suitable than polyester string for players who are prone to upper extremity tennis injuries. String tension impacts the amount of control and power a player will have with their shots. Each racquet will have a tension range that is appropriate for that model. However, you can still customize the tension to your needs. Lower tensions give a player slightly more power but sacrifice a bit of control while higher tensions give slightly better control but less power. Skill level should influence the tension a racquet is strung at. Less experienced players lack the skill to control their racquet especially well and will usually benefit from slightly increased power. The opposite is true for more experienced players.
