Professional Stringers course returns to Cork

Rushbrooke LTC will be the venue once again for the Professional Stringer and Racket Technician course on Tuesday 30th of June and Wednesday the 1st of July. 

The Professional Stringer syllabus covers all racket servicing skills and is aimed at beginners and experienced stringers alike. It's an ideal way to start off a successful stringing business and established stringers will always find new skills and knowledge. 

The Racket Technician course covers the skills and knowledge associated with customising rackets for the professional player or those with specific racket needs. Racket balancing, matching, changing overall weight, balance and swingweight, handle resizing, catering for Tennis Elbow and so on.  Ideally to do this course you should have first done the Professional stringers course.

The tutor will be Liam Nolan, UKRSA Technical Director and former Wimbledon Stringing Team manager. 

Its a 9am start on both days. Liam is offering special reduced prices for these courses.  The Professional stringers course will be €200 and the Racket Technicians course will be €130.

To sign up for either or both courses please contact Liam in advance on the email below.For more information on what will be included and to arrange course fee payment, please email

Meet Liam!!
