Who are we;

We are an independent stringing school based at the home of Nick Rivett Sport, Hove an independent specialist sports store specialising in racquets and running. String school was born from our 13 years of racquet stringing experience and the desire to share our skills and passion in a modern, forward thinking way with those who wish to learn to string their own racquets, racquets of their children or string for people at your local club.
