About us

Pro Shot Racquet Restringing is a specialty business in Coburg North that caters to all tennis lovers, regardless of age and level of skill. We pride ourselves on providing a personalised and expert restringing and racquet care service.

Owned and managed by Stuart Staton, a veteran tennis player and a former New Zealand Champion, Pro Shot is every tennis player’s best buddy in Melbourne. Stuart brings more than 30 years of combined experience in restringing, playing, and coaching. Tennis has been his whole life. His passion for the sport first started burning as a junior player, before he went on to hit the dizzy heights of New Zealand Junior Champion in 1984, and the 5th ranked player in all of New Zealand. He is now a sought-after coach in Australia after his retirement from playing professional tennis.

Stuart’s qualifications include Tennis Australia ANZ Hot Shots, Tennis Australia Community Coaching, and ATPCA Advanced Professional Tennis Coach.  On top of that, he is a Solinco Australia Ambassador and a member of the United States Racquet Stringers Association or the USRSA.

Driven by his love for tennis, Stuart chose to get into racquet stringing to apply his technical knowledge and to continue being part of the growing tennis community. Through Pro Shot, he hopes to inspire future players and improve the game of those who are currently into the sport.

Stuart knows the ins and outs of racquet stringing, and is always more than happy to help you make a decision on the right strings and tension for you. From gauge to material, we’ll be able to help you with a string set-up that is perfect for your level and style of play.
