    Rocky Mount, NC here. I don't know of any in Raleigh (however, I'm sure there are), but if you ever come to Rocky Mount you can have some quality (and quick) stringing done at Benvenue Country Club Tennis Shop.

    Evening..i am happy to recommend one. Match Point Stringers and the guy's name is Michael. Here is his email addy..MatchPointStringers@nc.rr.com I am sure he will promptly respond. He's a serious stringer, has good equipment, is consistent, and calibrates often. I think you would be happy. Pls give him a try and he is in Raleigh. Ed

    Nice of you to help him, Ed. BTW, have you tried the Klip gut/Poly hybrid yet? If so, what do you think of it?

    I live out in Cary, about 5 min's from the CTC. I've been having my racquets strung there, but have not been happy with the service or turnaround time. Do you actually own a shop?

    Have you guys ever heard of Stringers on Old Wake Forest Rd. in Raleigh? We have same day turnaround and we strung for the Pros at the Women's 50K Challenger at North Hills Club last May and will do so again in 2005. We also have the largest selection of string in the Raleigh area. Check us out.

    I have been using Stringers on Old Wake Forest Road, and been extremely happy with their same day service.

    Omega Sports, in the new North Hills shopping mecca, also has a decent stringer, but they don't offer same day stringing, or the variety of string that Stringers does.

    The Millbrook Exchange Park Tennis Center also offers stringing services - the same guy who strings for Omega Sports strings there.

  15. stringer in RTP area

    BDS sports in Cary is the best i've experienced. It's basically a guy that has a shop in his house next to the Lochmere swim and tennis club. He's the local certifier for the USRSA and has over 10 grand in diagnostic equipment and machines and over 25 yrs of stringing experience, including stringing for Michael Chang and the local teaching pros.

    Regardless of where you go, make sure you evaluate:
    1. what kind of machine they use (electronic vs. lockout, etc)
    2. do they have good service, i.e., do they ask about your playing style and if you are having any wrist, elbow or shoulder problems to evaluate what kind of string you might want to try.
    3. what kind of diagnostic equipment do they have, i.e., do they calibrate their machine regularly and do they have a way of evaulating the consistency of the string installation they do- you want the string job coming out the exact same way every time. Can they show you what they do to make sure this is the case or do they just take the frame off the machine, hand it to you , and say that'll be 40 bucks, have a nice day.
