Racquet Stringing

Professional Stringing Service

We would like to welcome Thomas Stilwell to the Merchant of Tennis family as our Racquet Service Manager. We are extremely excited to have Tomas on board to bring his extensive international racquet stringing and customization experience to The Merchant of Tennis.

Tomas will manage our Racquet Service teams at both retail locations, as well as our online service team. He will be our lead stringer, ensuring all other staff are trained in the latest techniques and equipped with the tools they need to satisfy each customer’s unique racquet service needs.

Thomas is certified by the ERSA (European Racquet Stringers Association) as a Pro Tour Stringer Level 2. There are currently less than 50 people in the world with this certification, making Thomas a member of an elite group of racquet technicians.

Thomas is currently a member of the European Babolat Stringing Team. When Thomas isn’t travelling to string at professional events such as Wimbledon and the Australian Open, you will find him in our Toronto or Oakville retail stores.
