Babolat Stringing Room at Roland Garros

In 2011, Babolat replaced Tecnifibre as the official stringing service of the French Open. In the following videos from Babolat, they walk you through the various steps of the stringing process in what they call “the Babolab”. The audio on most of these videos is in French, but they provide written captions in English. Enjoy…

Thanks for checking in.

    Dang, so many racquets to string! Thanks for linking these videos.

    You’re welcome, Mike. It looks like Babolat is running a top-notch stringing service at the FO. And of course, the P1 guys are offsite stringing for their clients like Fed, Djoker, Murray, Soderling, and others. In fact, P1 is the stringer for 3 of the 4 men’s semi-finalists.

    Take care.


  3. Mike T says:

    DH, I know you run a stringing business. Have you ever strung for a tournament?

  4. David Henry says:

    Nope. I’m a damn good stringer, but I’m not sure I’m quite at the tour level. 🙂 I string for my local clients out of my home stringing room. I love it!


  5. Jason Henry says:

    Hey David, what do you mean by the P1 guys are stringing offsite? What does P1 mean? Thanks.

  6. David Henry says:

    Hey Jason – Priority 1 is a professional racquet stringing and customizing company that has some of the top men’s pro players as clients. They have Federer, Djokovic, and Murray as clients – just to name a few. So… While they are not the “official”, on-site stringing service at the Grand Slams, they rent a house/apartment/hotel room close to the tournaments and string for their clients from there.
