Restringing ensures your game remains in peak form. You may feel that your racquet is losing its “punch” at the net. As tension in your strings declines, your strings stretch more at impact, cushioning the ball’s landing and minimizing your racquet’s “squashing effect.”
Recreational players restring anywhere from every three or four times they play to once a decade, or until the strings break. Tennis string has an unfortunate property—beginning from the very second it is put into the racquet, it loses tension and continues losing tension with every second and with every hit.
If you’re going to play tournaments, we suggest restringing before every tournament so you can play you’re best tennis. For league, high school or college teams, we suggest restringing in the beginning of season, and every week after that until season ends to maintain a consistent stringbed.
Restringing. As we mentioned earlier, the general rule of thumb for restringing a tennis racket depends on how much you play per week. If you play 3 or 4 times a week, then you should consider replacing its strings at least 3 to 4 times per year. New strings will ensure high-quality performance.
Yes, definitely. Investing in your stringing machine will help you save plenty of money. If you play tennis daily, you’re likely to restring every few weeks. Even though the machine doesn’t come cheap, if you play frequently, your stringing machine will be a good investment in the long-run.

In the way that an older tennis ball deflates over time and doesn’t work as well, the same is true for your strings. Even if they haven’t broken, they need to be replaced periodically. Understand the ways to determine if your strings are damaged and consider having your racquet restrung before your next match.
If you are a competitive player, restring your racquet before the competition. Within a year, restring your racquet as many times as you play tennis in a week. If you play three times a week, three replacements a year should be sufficient. Try to restring your racquet at least once every six months.
