Bring your racquet to Academy Sports + Outdoors and we will string it for a nominal fee (does not include price of string). Please remember that the service we provide is limited to restringing. We don't offer racquet tune-ups, replace grommets or offer other racquet services. Service schedules vary from store to store, so it's a good idea to check with your local Academy Sports + Outdoors store for a convenient time. We also offer a free stinging service to customers when they buy a racquet and string together.
