I've been playing squash since I was 7 years old, playing at county/national level through all the age groups. I also played county tennis until my late teens and love all racket sports. My wife is also an ex junior international level badminton player and my eldest son is an elite level junior player, representing Wales at U19 level. Racket sports are pretty popular in my house!
I started stringing more regularly quite a few years ago, (having strung rackets on/off since my late teens) when I relocated from South Wales to the South West and have developed a loyal client base locally, throughout the UK and beyond. I occasionally even have rackets sent to me from the USA! I string for players on the PSA World Tour, including for players at the very top of the world rankings. I'm a Level 2 Coach and UK Manager (Squash) for GRSA International.
I'm passionate about stringing and making rackets look and play better! I love using the best strings, and thankfully the best strings also usually have bright colours in their ranges... I like BRIGHT colours!
