Visitors to the World Headquarters
Racquet Quest, LLC World Headquarters was a very busy place recently! It is always busy doing racquet work but this “busyness” was to share some time with visitors from around the world!
Albert Murata, from Hawaii, and his wife Heather were in town to play the 55’s at the USTA Campus, happily, they took the time to come by and chat about stinging stuff. You can reach Albert here.
Also here was Randy St Pierre from the UK. Randy stops by about twice a year and we always have vibrant discussions.
Since all of us are in the tennis business we have a lot to talk about.
It seems our discussions normally start with strings! Imagine that! Why do we talk about string, because it breaks and we replace it. Why does it break? There are several reasons but for right now we are focused on the grommet set in the racquet. Some grommets around the top of the racquet have very shallow grooves and the string can be exposed to court and fail. Not after one altercation with the court but over time for sure!
Racquet Characteristics are always popular to discuss with stiffness being one of the top subjects. You can see some racquet stiffnesses here.
Nothing is off limits so we always have a good time.
