Can anyone please recommend a wrist strap / racquet tether I could use with a Dunlop Aerogel squash racquet?

Have had a few near-misses and I'm getting worried about the flying racquet hitting an opponent.

Have seen some advertised on US sites but was wondering if there was anything available in the UK that you could recommend.

Thanks.

Thanks rippa... I'll give that a shot.

With regards the sipping racquet, I think it tends to be when I'm going for a vital point towards the end of a game and am (unconsciously) putting more effort into the shot... plus, by that point the sweat build-up is making the grip more treacherous (regardless of towel wiping) and my hand is starting to tire (so grip is loosening).

Cheers.

Good safety issue aidan.

Years ago rackets automatically came with a strap, which in fact was just a shoelace (a nice flat wide one) which was stapled onto the end of the racket to make a loop.  Forget the buying, and just get a lace out of your old joggers and tack it onto the end of the handle where the cup fits, positioned right on the butt of your racket.  If you do not like the tack idea, maybe the local upholsterer will staple it for you for free.   Ohh - forgot to mention, take the grip off first, and you will see the cup inserted over the end of the racket handle, then replace the grip as that will also help secure it.

I do have a bit more to say about why you are losing your racket, eg grip too small, holding the racket too close to the end.

PS - If perspiration is a problem, wear a wristband.
