Racket Restrings

Have a fresh string bed for the start of the season.

The string bed makes contact with the ball and if the strings are older than 6 months all the elasticity in them will have been stretched to breaking point.............the racket will be 'dead'. It will feel lifeless but you'll be used to it. Have a look at the button above for stringing options or see Jonathan.

New to Tennis?


We play tennis outside in the fresh air at Blaydon Tennis Club and have 9 floodlit tennis courts so weather permitting we play all year round. We are an accredited Sport England 'club mark' club which in part means we have a safe and secure environment to play and coach tennis. All coaches have an enhanced crb certificate and LTA coaching qualification.

You can try a term of tennis coaching, usually 6 weeks, before you join the tennis club. If you do a second term you have to join. More details above 'Blaydon Tennis Club' and a link to the club website.

We have an extensive programme and will have something for you whether you are 3 or 63, a complete beginner or advanced team player, coming with a friend or by yourself - whatever you want we can provide it.

There's a lot of courses listed on this site so please have a good look around. If you can't find what you are after please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  


Many Thanks
