Welcome to CrossCourt Stringing, a site not only dedicated to providing racquet stringing services but also the information to make you a better player. First off, I would like to give a background on who we are. My father, Wing, played high school tennis with friends and became a great player without the aid of coaching. My father is now retired but plays 5 times a week at The Burnaby Tennis Club. At age 3 I picked up my father's racquet and starting hitting a tennis ball against the door in the basement. I played competitive tennis throughout my teen years but an injury in my arm prevented me from carrying on. I am a Level II certified coach from Tennis Canada and a certified stringer from the United States Racquet Stringers Association.
My father and I have been stringing tennis racquets for over 29 years now for people in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Coquitlam and the rest of the Lower Mainland. We started off on a table top machine with a weight drop and then to an professional Ektelon Model H. I'm happy to announce that I have recently bought a brand new Gamma 5800 Els Professional Electric Stringing Machine. This machine has the most accurate tension calibration and the clamps hold the string with precision. You won't find a better machine and with my experience you'll be sure to get the best string job ever!
Being an active player, stringing in local competitions in the past and working at Nevada Bob's has provided me with invaluable experience to people's needs. Together, my father and I wish to provide tennis players with quality workmanship and a wealth of knowledge to make this sport as enjoyable as possible.
We carry name brand strings such as Alpha, Babolat, Gamma, Head, Prince, Wilson and Yonex. Our prices are unlike those at sporting goods stores. We do not double the price of the string and then tack on the fifteen dollar labour charge. We keep our machine in top performing shape and calibrate it before every string job. As mentioned, I am a certified stringer, the last I knew, I was about the third Canadian to be certified and only twenty-five stringers are certified in Canada.
My father and I hope you find this site useful and look forward to meeting you. We hope to bring you the best stringing job you have ever had whether it's tennis, squash, racquetball or badminton!
