Squash String Guide

The vast majority of squash rackets are strung with synthetic gut strings. These strings are typically more affordable and more durable than natural gut squash strings.

Synthetic Gut Squash Strings: Two primary types of synethic gut squash strings are available. Monofilament strings contain a single nylon filament, whereas miltifilament strings contain multiple nylon fibres which have been twisted together, creating a more complex string type.

When discussing squash string gauge, we are referring to the thickness of the squash string, measured in millimetres. A thinner string will feel better to play with, as well as being softer on your arm. A thicker string will not feel quite as good but will be more durable than a thinner string.

It is important to find a string gauge which suits your game, as well as being cost effective so that you are not restringing your squash racket after a few hours of play.

Squash string gauges are typically range from 1.10mm in thickness to 1.30mm in thickness, with around 1.20mm being the most popular squash string gauge.

The final variable when choosing a squash string is the tension which you would like your squash racket strung at, which can have a massive impact on your overall performance.

  • All squash rackets will specify a recommended tension range, which can commonly be found on the inside of the racket frame above the handle
  • Typically, squash rackets will be strung between 24lbs and 30lbs on tension, or between 811kgs and 14kgs if measuring in metrics
  • A looser tension will be characterised by more power, whereas a tighter tension will demonstrate greater control on your shots
  • If you are unsure which tension to opt for, we would recommend having your squash racket strung in the middle on the recommended tension range, usually around 24 -26 lbs
  • A higher string tension will cause more strain in your arm. For this reason, we would recommend that junior and senior players use a lower string tension to minimise injury
  • Squash rackets will lose tension relatively quickly so it is worth considering stringing a few pounds higher than what you actually want to play with to compensate for this loss of tension
  • As you might expect a racket with a tighter string tension will lose tension more rapidly than a looser string tension
