    Do College players have to pay for strings and stringing?

    My son is at a lower level D1 private university and they have a string sponsor although he prefers a different brand, he will use it but on occasion pays for his own strings. I don't know about everyone on his team but he strings his own racquets...the school does have a stringing machine.
