    Hey guys I just moved to Melbourne and I was wondering if there were any home stringers here who would be willing to string for me, and how much you charge. Also would be great if you can do nat gut. Thanks!

    Not too far at all - do you know if they string with the customer's own string? I guess I should call and ask them. The main reason I am looking for a good home stringer is I want to try Gaucho or Global Gut...

    Take some time and go out to Nth Balwyn and visit Serve & Volley! I used to hang around there back in 01/02. Great store!

    What is your expectation of a fair price on a string job when you provide your own string?

    IT Tennis in North Balwyn @ Boroondara charge $15 for repeat customers ($25 first visit) - best price I have found.

    Wow thats a very good price. I will have to give them a call - hope they will do nat gut!

    v205 - I would pay $30 for a good stringer using my own nat gut.
