About us

The best stringing and customization for your racquets

Owner Jay Bazinet is a USRSA Master Racquet Technician and a GRSA Master Pro Stringer. Jay is also a member of the Solinco Professional Stringing Team, stringing at the most prestigious junior tournaments in the United States, including Junior Nationals in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

With a strong desire to keep current with today’s tennis industry standards, Jay continually reaches out to the leaders in the industry for assistance and opportunities to learn.

When Jay isn’t stringing, he is on the court teaching or consulting players on their best frame and string set up taking into consideration factors such as age, skill level and if the player has had any wrist, elbow or shoulder pain in the past. All of these factors go into deciding which frame, and string will go best and at what tension. Shoreline Stringing is the official stringing service for Lyme Shores Tennis and Fitness, located at 22 Colton rd. in East Lyme, Ct.

A few things we’re great at


We stock the latest string from the top manufacturers such as Wilson, Solinco, Babolat and Technifibre. If we dont carry your favorite string chances are that we can get it for you.


We can change your replacement grip (cushion) or the overgrip of your choice. They are carefully placed on your handle, where each overlap is close to perfection.

Handle build-up

Grip too big or too small? No problem! We can customize the size of the handle accordingly to your hand size.

grommet and bumper replacement

Protect your racquet by keeping the grommets and bumpers in check. During each stringing job, we clean them up so they look brand new.


We match two or more racquets. Let us know your preferred specs and we take care of the rest.

All racquets will feel the same.


We can customize the weight, balance and swingweight of your tennis racquet.

Bring them over and find out how small changes can make a huge improvement to your game.

The secret to success

Whether you are playing for leisure or competitive tennis, your racquet should be an extension of your arm. Minor details can make the difference between winning points and matches.


Strings can have a major impact in your game. One pound can make all the difference in the ball trajectory. Not to mention the strings composition.

Handle size

A handle too big or small can cause discomfort to your hand, wrist or even elbow. Bring your racquet so we can check if you have the proper size.


How heavy a racquet feels when swinging can make a difference in those long matches. It can also help absorb the energy of the incoming ball. Visit us and learn more about this important feature of your tennis racquet.

Overgrips, dampeners, and other items can enhance the performance of your tennis racquet. Come to our store and find out which items can help on your game.

When shoulder pain began to really affect my tennis, a friend recommended that I talk to Jay about having my racquet restrung. I was amazed. Within two weeks of Jay restringing my racquet I literally had no more shoulder pain. Jay’s artistry comes from years and years of experience. You will be well served.
