Hi guys, I'll be heading to college this month and I was lucky enough to have a chance to work at a local tennis shop. One of my duties will be stringing for other racquet sports: badminton/squash/racquetball racquets, which is popular during the snowy months.

My experience has primarily been stringing tennis racquets, so I was wondering if anyone had any good websites that provide a crash course in stringing nontennis racquets, or if anyone could provide their own insight with this type of stringing.

Plus, if you would like to talk about these sports in general, thats fine too.I will probably have to help customers with picking out Badminton/Squash/Racquetball racquets.

I'm trying to pick up as much info as I can before I start working, so any insight would be great.Sorry, I realize this is a tennis forum, but I know alot of you guys participate in these sports so I thought Id give it a shot.

Thanks!

From my experience, if you know how to string tennis racquets you know how to string the others. While almost all of my stringing has been tennis, I have strung racquetball and squash. They are smaller and a little more tedious, but about the same. I recall that the squash racquets need 17 or 18 gauge string. Although special string is marketed for squash, I believe the string is the same as tennis string.
The stringing patterns can be found on some of the same sites used for tennis, Klippermate comes to mind.
You can do it, no problem.

I saw that on a site telling how to string badminton. How can you give accurate tension to each main or cross if its already weaved?
