Hey everyone,

I just took over as the head coach for my district's High School tennis team. I'd like to learn how to string racquets so that I can provide that as a service to my students at no cost.

Is there anyone in the DFW area (I live in the Keller area and work in Denton county) that would be willing to help me learn with some hands-on assistance?

Congratulations on your new appointment.

I agree there is perhaps no substitute for real live in person help, but there are very many good online tutorials to help with beginner stringers as an alternate as you proceed with your search.

1- This Tennis Warehouse Forum has some videos on how to string in the sticky section.
2- And on Youtube I learned the basics and finer points from MrStringer. He by the way is a resident on this forum.

After some video instruction I found OJT and by doing to be a good teacher. Hopefully you can find someone in your area to help or perhaps observe stringing and ask questions at a local tennis shop.

Thanks for the tips, I will definitely check out those videos from Mr. Stringer. I watched a few videos the other day and found myself getting a bit lost, but I have ADD that can complicate that.

Some lessons I went through in the beginning.

1- Find the right type of stringing machine for you.
2- Mounting a racquet.
3- Measuring out the right amount of string. (being short can be extremely frustrating, time consuming and expensive)
4- Tying Knots. ( i spent alot of effort finding a good starting knot and a compact tie off knot)
5- Starting mains.
6- Weaving ahead on crosses
7- Two piece or one piece jobs
8- Blocked holes

There are many experts here (not me I am a novice) that will also answer all your questions.

I assume you mean Mr10sStringer. LOL If you ever have any questions or get lost in any of my videos just leave a comment in the comment section. I try to address every question that’s asked in a reasonable time frame.
