Hi i have been playing squash for around 2 months now about 3-4 times a week and am really enjoying it. But i have seen alot of posts on strings and would just like to know is it highly recommended and especially worth the £20-£25 needed to get my rackuet re-strung ( Dunlop 500 blackstorm.

My racket strings have started to move around in the center quite a bit and i have to re arrange them after a game.

hi stevee

strings do make a difference but, pardon the pun, how long is a piece of string?

as a general rule, the better player you are skills wise, the more impact your strings will have.

most new rackets are strung with the strings one the loose side. this is because when they are looser, more power is generated and the racket will feel better (trampoline effect) - you will be more inclined to buy it.

the best players play with a much higher string  tension as they can generate power easier and need the extra control the tighter strings bring.

if you have just started out, my guess is that a restring will not make that much of a difference.

having said that, there is only one way to find out - get a restring and see. alternatively, if you have a racket restringer at your club who is a straight shooter, ask his/her advice.

they should be able to assess from watching you play and looking at your racket to know if there is much to be gained froma restring
