June 18, 2010, Newsletter Issue #268: What Type of String?

Tip of the Week

If you're new to tennis, start with basic nylon tennis string, with a thicker gauge, like 15. As you improve, try out different brands of string, and thinner gauges, until you find the right type of string for you. Determining string tension is a little trickier. If you want control, tennis string it as tight as the manufacturer recommends. If you're looking for power, string it at the lowest end of the recommended tension.
