Happy You Year!

Of course, we are all anxious for the new year to get here and erase 2020 from our memory!

We are designating 2021 as the You Year!  So, Happy You Year!

For the last few years Racquet Quest, LLC has put more emphasis on “custom racquets” and 2021 will see this emphasis extended to “you racquets”!

What exactly does “you racquets” mean?  It simply means that every racquet that leaves Racquet Quest, LLC is set up for your style of play and personal specifications.  Yes, even if the racquet is Off-the-Shelf and not a full custom!

This is the year of “you”! Happy You Year!

Many really good things are happening next year and we are glad you are going to be with us!

 

 

 

Easy Order is Back!

During this period of social distancing, it is hard to have a comprehensive discussion about your tennis racquet!

So, we have brought back our Easy Order form for your convenience!  Simply go to the form and give us as much information as possible.  Let us know when you can come by and we will reach out and grab your racquet!

In addition to the link in this post, there is a tab on the home page for Easy Order.  Of course, you can use Easy Order even after this virus situation is resolved!

It is as simple as that!

We want everyone to stay safe, please!

 

Racquet & Tournament Management

Management is not just for adults!  Juniors that play tournaments need to have some management skills!  During this coronavirus slow down it is a good time to learn some of these management skills.

We see many different management slip-ups such as no racquets for the tournament tomorrow!  All racquets have broken string and are at the bottom of a bag nobody wants to stick their hand into!

Juniors Management Tip #1:

Every Monday takes every racquet out of the bag.  If one or more are broken leave them out of the bag.

Juniors Management Tip #2

To get some idea of how much longer the string may last simply try to move the 5th or 6th cross string by pulling up toward the top of the racquet. If you can not pull the cross string up it is time for stringing.  If you are able to pull a cross string up pay attention to the “snap” it makes as you push it back into location.  A serious “snap” indicates a deep notch.

Monofilament strings typically fail by notching which makes it difficult to move the cross strings.  If your string is a multi-filament and looks like the picture on the left it is time to string!

Notching Visual Fail Test








What if neither of these conditions exists?

Every racquet in your bag should have a tag indicating when the racquet was last strung and if it has been more than one month it is time to string, period!

Just for fun you can go to our SFC function and get a good ideas as to how many times per year yu need to have your racquet strung.

Tis The Season!

We are a family with a multiplicity of religious beliefs, including Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations!

So, I just say “I Love You” to all of my family!

This same sentiment is true for all of our friends, clients, customers, and suppliers!

How ever you celebrate this season, these few words go a long way toward making this time of year very special!
