    Does anyone know any stringers in Toronto and the GTA which provides quality stringing service (no scratches or nicks on the racquet) for a reasonable price?

    Lee's is very good. Parkway Fitness Centre is where they are located. Hwy.7 and Leslie.

    I've been stringing at Lee's for 3 years now. You tell them what you want to string at say for example, 23lbs. across and 20lbs. vertical and it won't be a problem with them. I never had problems with them.

    There are a few places to go in Toronto....you can go to Yo Sports, he is a member of the USRSA (united states racquets stringers association).

    YOSPORTS
    3255 HWY 7, Unit168
    Markham, ON, CANADA
    L3R3P3
    905.4745711

    The shop owner is the only guy who strings there unless he is out of country on business, where he may call on his cuz to string, but this only happens like once a year....

    Lee's, i never did like them....they are like national sports....always a different person stringing racquets....never the same person...usually one of the elite students who trains there and works there as well as a coach does stringing when he is not coaching....

    Depends on where you go at Lee's. If you go to the training centre then you have the coaches or team players string them. If you go to the retail store, Jennifer is the only one that will string them unless she is taking the team out of Toronto or the country to tournaments.

    Look up some local club, they always have professional stringers at hand. I never trust sport shops that has some idiotic part time stringer at hand to do the most shotty job you've ever seen.

    Unfortunately, most pro-shop in most club are more professional in Tennis & racquet ball, not badminton
