    your best bet is to go to a badminton club cos it's really cheap. There is a store called "Tension 24" on kingsway in Glen Waverley and it's a specialist racket store. However, everyone hates it cos they charge you through the roof and don't really sell up to date badminton stuff. A stringing here would set you back about $45 for BG 65 but you'll get the racket back the next day. (be warned my friend had to go back there about four times in two weeks as the string they recomended for him kept breaking) i haven't had troubles though. Kilsythe badminton club and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre would be about $21 but they're quite far away from i am and it would take a few days. There is a place in Box Hill - $40 but it would be ready by the next day.

    Thanks Sudda

    I contacted the Melbourne Aquatic Centre and was told that they did not do re-stringing, since i only work around the corner from the place, i might drop in and have a look to check it out for my self. Cheers
