For a small extra charge of $5, we can restring your racquet while you wait and enjoy a free coffee on us. If you need a while-u-wait restring, call our store on (03) 9419 4000 to arrange a time.
Note: Most racquets take around 20 -30 minutes to string.

During Shop Opening Hours

This is what most of our customers do. Drop your racquet (or racquets) off during the day and collect at a pre-arranged time, or we can call you when it’s done so you can collect at your own convenience. On most occasions that will be the following day.

After Hours Drop Off

Why not take advantage of Prelli Tennis’ famous after hours racquet slot. If you can’t make it to our store in Collingwood during business hours (10am – 6pm), you can drop your racquet (or racquets) off any time of the day or night.
All you need to do is attach your name and number to the racquet handle (there’s a card and pencil next to the slot), drop it in the after-hours slot, and we’ll do the rest!
Next morning, if you’ve had a racquet strung by us before, we will have your restring details on file already and get straight to work. If not, we’ll call you to discuss restring over the phone with you. There’s no need to worry about rushing out to beat the traffic.
We can even arrange to deliver the racquet back to you. Call us on (03) 9419 4000 to discuss pricing.
