    Hiya all

    I am wondering what I would need to become a stringer at major tournaments in the UK?
    I am an experienced stringer 3+ years and I currently work as a stringer at an online store where I do 50+ racquets a week. I use Drop-Weight (at home) and Crank and Electronic at work. I do Tennis, Squash and Badminton (started in Badminton :))

    I was looking into taking a UKPRSA Pro Stringing qualification (I think that's what its called) but I don't know if this will help me become a professional stringer. The £249 course with grip re-sizing and things seems very Tennis orientated and although I would do this, it seems a bit redundant when Pro players are getting their racquets supplied to them in a personalised manner. I don't mean to sound negative about the course as I don't know anyone that has taken it.

    Cheers
