As the cold weather is here, it's important to look after your string.

Please try not to store your racket in your car or locker, as cold strings are likely to suddenly snap whilst playing in cold weather / on a cold court, as cold string is less stretchy.

Picture suddenly stretching BluTac - it will snap! ... Warm it up and it will stretch without snapping. Similar to our muscles, warm up prior to exercise so muscle injuries are less likely.

It is advisable to store your racket at home and have a gentle warm up game before diving in.

Many players warm their racket strings by rubbing them with their hands.

Use the racket cover if you have one.
