When should I change my racquet grip?
Your racquet grip should be changed once it starts slipping in your hand or showing wear. If you play several times per week, you should probably change your grip once a month.
When should I change my racquet strings?
Strings should be changed when they break or lose tension. Over time strings lose tension, so generally should be replaced every year the number of times you play per week, or when they break. For example, if you play three times a week, you should replace your strings at least three times per year.
When should I change my squash shoes?
Over time the soles in indoor shoes will lose cushioning and support, and wear over time due to the nature of the fast impacting movements in squash. For the best comfort and support shoes should be replaced around every eight months if you are a competitive squash player, but if you don't play too often, they will last for longer.
What brands do you stock?
We stock currently stock products from Salming, Dunlop, Eye, Compressport Racket, and Double Dot Squash. If you would like to see another brand or product in our shop please let us know!
