About our racquet technicians
If you’re looking for the best racquet and stringing advice for your game, USRSA members can help. They’re educated, informed, and up to date on the latest racquets, strings, grips, accessories, and stringing techniques.
Master Racquet Technicians (MRT)
Several hundred of our racquet technicians are the cream of the crop in tennis retailing — they’re USRSA Master Racquet Technicians, or MRTs. They work to fit you with the racquet, string, and tension that are right for your game. They’ve passed a comprehensive test to prove they know their stuff — whether it’s racquet customization (changing the weight and balance of your frame with strategically applied lead tape), handle build-ups, advice on racquet technology, or the perfect fit for you, your racquet, and your string tension, MRTs have proven their expertise. And they’ve maintained their MRT status by keeping their USRSA membership up to date and by passing an annual test on manufacturers’ technologies.
Certified Stringers (CS)
There is another group of USRSA members who’ve also been rigorously tested in racquet service techniques. These are stringers who are eminently qualified to string and service your racquet and answer your technical questions. They continue their education by keeping their USRSA membership current. They’re USRSA Certified Stringers.
Professional Racquet Advisors (PRA)
Beginning in 2017, a new certification of Professional Racquet Advisor (PRA) will provide a certification for individuals working in the industry who are called upon to provide their expertise regarding racquet and strings but don’t actually service the racquets. These individuals, including coaches, teaching professionals, sales professionals and shop staff, must pass a comprehensive written exam covering all aspects of frame and string technologies, as well as well as demonstrate their ability to apply that knowledge in fitting players with the best racquet and string set-up for their game.
