It’s important to inspect your equipment periodically – even if you’re taking a break from playing tennis regularly. Combining the right string (material and gauge) with the proper amount of tension on your racket (as defined by your manufacturer) may be your saving grace.

So how do you know when to change your tennis strings and how often? There is a general rule of thumb for tennis players, you should restring your tennis racquet as many times per year as you play in a week – example: if you play tennis 3 days per week, you should change your tennis strings 3 times per year. Which to me does not seem often enough.
