COVID - 19 UPDATE - It's business as usual

If you do not yet feel comfortable me collecting/dropping off your racket, why not use my mail order service. I am waiving the return carriage contribution. The cost to you will be outward carrier and the cost of a restring. I use myHermes , and in most cases costs no more than £3.50. Visit the mail order page for more info. All rackets are cleaned, inspected for defects and a new over grip will be fitted. 

As always personal callers are welcome. Please text before setting out to give me warning of your visit and, contact-less payment is available.
