Do you offer 'Gait Analysis' when I'm buying running shoes?

If you don't mind strolling up and down the shop for a while as we check your alignment, your arches, your ankles etc, we can make a good assessment of the type of shoes you will need. if you can also bring with you a previously used pair of shoes, we can learn much from the tread pattern and wear over time.

During the final week of Lockdown, the same gait analysis can be carried out at or outside your home, if you wish.

Can I get my racket restrung and how quickly can it be ready?

Restringing takes place in my Restringing Studio in Reigate. Rackets brought to the shop can often be ready for collection on the next working day. Alternatively, I offer a free home collection and delivery service for a large post code area. Please refer to the 'Restringing' tab on this website for full details. I use a professional quality Babolat Star 5 electronic stringing machine for tennis racket restrings, and a traditional manual machine for squash, badminton and racketball rackets. With nearly three decades of experience, you can be assured of an excellent restringing job.

Are you operating with social distancing, and what are your safety policies?

We will want to make sure our customers stay safe, so the shop will continue to operate according to Government guidelines.

Social distancing, hand sanitising and an enhanced cleaning regime will all be back in place.

Customers will again be requested to wait and queue outside the shop if there are already two customers in the shop.

Please try not to touch the stock more than is necessary, and please keep children under strict control.

We will again not be permitted to have the fitting room operational for the time being, but clothing purchased can be returned for replacement or a full refund if it is unsuitable. It is essential that you keep your receipt for any returns.
