Introduction

You will be cutting the strings off the tennis racket and taking off the old bumper guard. Then you are going to replace it with a new bumper guard. You will have to do the netting on your own, or take it to a store to get it done. You can either use utility scissors or nail clippers to cut the strings.

Place  the tennis racket on a  big and comfortable surface.  An empty table will be ideal.
