Mike is the most qualified stringer in Chester
He was trained by the former head stringer of Wimbledon and director of the UKRSA, Liam Nolan. Liam has strung for Federer plus may other stars and passed on all of his top tips to Mike. In addition to this, Mike is a certified UKRSA Racket Stringer And Technician. As a professional level 4 tennis coach, Mike can arrange play tests of strings and rackets for you.
Mike hasn’t stopped there with his learning and has been on conferences to learn from the leading experts. Recently, Mike decided to expand his knowledge and wanted to learn how to string badminton and squash rackets the best possible way.
He was lucky to spend full days of one to one training, learning from some of the best stringers in the industry!
For badminton – Mike learned from Paul Stewart of Badminton Coach UK who has strung at the World and All England Championships!
For squash – Mike learned from Nick Down who has strung at three World Squash Championships!
You can see how passionate Mike is about stringing and how much time he has devoted in developing his skills to be the best they can be.
Mike uses one of the best machines
Many home stringers use cheap manual machines which do not do a professional job. These machines are often way off with the tension and perform poorly.
Mike’s machine of choice is an FST 650, which has a Wise 2086 professional constant pull electronic tension head attached. These machines are used a lot on the UKRSA professional stringing courses. This machine can produce accuracy to one tenth of a pound, meaning you can have whatever tension you want! Furthermore, a diablo is used to less the stress on the string and this prevents the crushing of the string in the gripper.
