Toronto Area Badminton Stores
Here are a list of stores and pro shops in the Toronto Area. Check each website to find out the cost to string your racquet.
Yo's Badminton & Tennis
3255 Hwy 7,
www.yos.ca (Having Problems accessing the web site.)
Yo's uses the four knot method and skips the second cross from the bottom as his stringing signature. He is an experienced stringer and I am always satisfied with his work. He is always seen stringing racquets and always has many customers. Racquests are strung on time and always ready on the date that you requested. I get my racquets strung with him when I am in the area. When purchasing a racquet frame, BG 65 string job comes free with purchase.
Winning Cycle & Sports,
4271 Sheppard Ave.E.,
Unit 8, Scarborough, ON
Winning Cycle also uses four knot method and always does a excellent job. He is also an experienced stringer. Racquest are always ready on the date of request. I get racquests strung with him more now since he is closer to were I work. When purchasing a racquet frame, BG 65 string job comes free with purchase.
80E Centurian Drive,
Unit 6-9, Markham, ON
I have not tried getting my racquests strung at Lee's yet because I am currently happy with my current stringers. I have purchased racquets from Lee's, their racquets do not come with free stringing. Stringing a frame is an extra cost.
500 Ensa Park Drive,
Unit 8, Markham, ON
I have not tried getting my racquests strung at Mandarin's yet because I am currently happy with my current stringers. I haven't purchased racquets from their pro shop so I do not know what stringing method they use.
Brown's Sports & Cycle
2447 Bloor St. West
Toronto, Ontario, Canada M6S-1P7
I have not tried getting my racquests strung at Brown's yet because I am currently happy with my current stringers. I haven't purchased racquets from this store. My brother got his racquet strung there and they use the two knot method. My brother said that he didn't like the way they strung his racquet and ended up cutting the strings and getting it re-strung and one of the other stores mentioned above. The cost is a little on the expensive side compared to the other stores.
Hope this information helps,

Sorry, I should have specified.
You are correct that the prices for the racquets are good and competitive. I was talking about the cost to restring a racquet. For example the following prices for a racquet restring with the indicated string: Lee's charges $18 for BG 65, Yo's charges $19 for BG 65, Winning charges $19.50 for BG 65 all tax included and Brown's charges $20 for BG 65 (I'm not sure if the tax and service fee are included in the price. Can someone please verify?)
P.S. I think this thread is in the wrong place, could it be moved. Thanks in advance.

It costs 15 dollars to string, but if you choose bg65, which they have plenty of, they'll only charge you 20 for string and service.

which one of these stores have the best prices and the best stringer?

Best Stringers.Originally Posted by david07
Do a search for Lee's and Brown's stringing. There are both pro's and con's posts about their service. It will be up to you to decide, I have no comments on their abilities since I have not used their services.

There's also a newish place on Yonge between Finch and NY Centre. Don't know what its called but its on the east side of Yonge.. Their prices for everything are much lower than if you went to either Lee's or Mandarin.

If you're taking transit, then just get off at North York Centre station. Take the stairs that lead to the east side of Yonge St. and walk a few blocks north.

I have had my racquet strung by YO's, Winning Cycle, and Lee's.
They are all competent strings and do a good job.
However, in terms of customer service and friendliness, I would recommend Winning cycle.
I find, if you don't speak Cantonese, Yo and Lee give you attitude.
