Carry no more than 4 of each model racquet, some balls, and shoes.

Have any of you opened a shop? What's your experience been?
Where do you live? Can tennis be supported 12 months of the year?
Stringing will be the backbone of your or any tennis shop, need a good string machine with appropriate attachments.
Get into the right programs with your distributors
Sell high
buy low.
