Do you have what it takes to be a professional tennis racket stringer - part 1

I am often asked about professional racket stringing and how the doors opened in my favor.  There is no overnight success or easy road to being a professional racket stringing.  With a little luck and a lot of hard work that dream can become a reality.  There are a few prerequisite skills that need to developed before even starting your journey.  You must be able to string a tennis racket within a 30 minute period without making a mistake and be able to do it for hours on end, use proper technique and not need to refer to a manual for string pattern help.  Becoming familiar with computerized stringing equipment, stringing tools, stenciling rackets, understanding stringing techniques, tie off knots, pre-stretching string, etc are all important things that you will need to know and understand.  These things alone will not make you a good stringer but will give you some background in stringing.  Time is your friend as well, most professional stringers have been stringing for years before stringing at the professional level. 
If you think you have what it takes than its time to find a way to break in and get your feet wet.   Stay tuned for more to come on this series on getting started as a stringer.  Tomorrow I will discuss some strategies to get you started.
