    I know, or at least think I know, that Luxilon is manufactured in France. Can anyone tell me the city/village/town? And, do they give tours?

    Yeah. :D I posted before I looked myself. I still don't know about tours. I will probably have to email them. My dad lives in Germany and when I visit him I want to visit the string factories of Babolat, Tecnifibre, Luxilon and the others while I am in Europe.

    Just make sure you get a hell of a lot of string and come and visit me in UK to drop it off:) Not that UK is that interesting, probably not even worth a look on the internet:(

    I'll actually be looking for some hitting partners... ever want to beat an American at tennis? If so, I'll look you up when I get there. I did plan on visiting the UK (london, probably.)

    No seriously. I'm not much of a player. But, I just got me some hitting partners and plan on practicing a lot. I don't want to go to the Symposium and look like a fool. :D ;)

    Yeah, it won't be for a while. But, once I know when I'm headed over, I'll let anyone interested know. We can all meet up and play a few matches. :D

    Yes Michael, it's Belgium my friend, Wijnegem (Antwerp) to be exactly, Normally they dont give tours, you could always send them a mail though but i doubt it. It's just a normal company you know. Germany is next to Belgium, very good transport, if you decide to come down drop me mail, we could hit some balls with fresh strung alu power ;-)

    ps: where your dad lives?

    He lives at the American Consulate in Frankfurt, but he is never there. He works for the FAA so he's all over Europe and North African.

    Ericsson beat me to it :)
    It's in Antwerp on an industrial park I believe.
    If you get over to London YuLitle give me a shout and we'll play if you want, or possibly just drink too much if that's more what you're feeling at the time.
