About String Sports
String Sports LTD is a racket sports’ specialist store based in Glasgow. After 5 years of operating as part of Europe’s leading racket sports’ retail franchise, we became independent in 2015 and String Sports was born.

We offer all the major racket sports brands under one roof and we pride ourselves on being able to offer expert advice and a high level of customer service. This website is the next stage in the String Sports journey, our aim is to continue offering an enjoyable customer experience but now reaching out to a wider audience.

Price Match and Multi Racket Deals
We do our best to ensure we offer the best product at the best price, this is why you'll find the majority of the product on our website selling slightly below the RRP. We hate being beaten on price, so please give us the opportunity to price match if you're able to purchase an item cheaper elsewhere. Simply head over to the contact us section of our website, list the product and include a link to where you've seen it, we'll then do our best to match that price. Some T&Cs apply. We won't price match Ebay or Amazon, the product (in the desired size/colour) has to be in stock on the website we're matching, and any cost of delivery will be factored into the overall price of the product.
We also offer the following discounts when you purchase more than one racket. These discounts are only available against full price adult rackets. To apply the discount, simply enter the appropriate code during the checkout process. The discount will be applied to your order as a whole, so it's a good opportunity to pick up anything else you might be needing. Some terms and conditions apply, for example, a discount cannot be applied to a price match.
When purchasing two rackets, enter code '2RACKETDEAL' to receive 10% off.
When purchasing three rackets, enter code '3RACKETDEAL' to receive 15% off.
Our Social Responsibility
While we remain quite a small business, we do our best to ensure we operate ethically and responsibly. Waste and recycling has become a big talking point over recent years, and we're keen to make sure we're part of the solution and not the problem. This is why, in an effort to become less of a "throwaway business", we aim to reuse and recycle as much of our supplier's packaging as we can. Cardboard boxes will be used again when packaging and sending out our customer orders, plastic wrapping and bubblewrap will be reused in order to ensure your order is safe and protected. Any packaging we can't reuse is then disposed of using the recycling bins available at David Lloyd Leisure (Glasgow West End).
We also try to support fundraising efforts at local tennis clubs in an effort to 'pay it back'. Whether supporting through social media advertising or providing the odd prize for a raffle, we do our best to support in any way we can. Damaged items of stock or out of date point of sale items, are also donated to community tennis clubs, if we feel they might be of use. Community tennis clubs, in our opinion, are the unsung heroes of the tennis playing world. Operating on a very tight budget and predominantly volunteer led, these clubs aim to make a difference in their local community off the back of a very limited income, and are often the backbone of 'grass roots tennis'. If you would like to help us, we are happy to donate any unused tennis rackets or other bits of equipment you might have lying around to a worthwhile cause. This includes any unused or old tennis balls, which would be donated on your behalf to Mary's Meals. This Scottish charity provide meals to some of the world's poorest children, currently 1.2 million children every school day. As well as this, individual activity bags are sent out to children which would include one of your old tennis balls. If you would like donate anything whether to a local community club or Mary's Meals, please drop us a message in our contact us section.
