Don's Tennis Shop isn't the best in town, it's the BEST I'VE EVER BEEN TO! Great pricing, super service, speedy turnabout on restringing rackets. By the way he takes credit cards (I used my Visa Cheque Card). Highly recommended!

We moved to Charlotte a few years ago... I have a family of tennis players and although we don't live near Don's Tennis we've made the trip there many times. It seems that Don has items that I can't find or are out of stock at a bigger retailer. His service is great... he's just a great guy. It's true he doesn't take Visa or MC but being a small business owner I can understand why... Support your local businessman and go to Don's first.... just remember to bring your check book! :-)

Pros: Huge selection of Tennis Rackets

Cons: You will try to be sold something used or without strings.

I am not one of the Tennis Elite and cannot criticize Don for his tennis knowledge (or lack of if that is the case) but I can say that he is a fair businessman and offers wonderful service. He sells a wide variety of rackets and can offer good advice for almost any player. He was very polite and helpful to me and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a place much nicer and far more helpful than the big box Sports Stores.

Pros: Quick and Convenient.

Cons: Very little Parking but not in his control.

I recently had a chance to visit the almighty ""Don's"" tennis store here in Charlotte, North Carolina. Reading many reviews of this place made me eager to see this place for myself and first hand experience the ""Customer Service"" that everyone spoke of. \r\n

Don takes the utmost care when stringing rackets. He has many customers but he treats each person with attention and respect. All other stringers and racket stores fall short. When Don is finished with a racket he stencils the strings. Don will stay up late to finish the racket by the deadline. Bottomline is you must choose don when stringing rackets.

Pros: Don will always get the job done no matter what.

Cons: Some of the grips and strings are a little on the expesive side.

Don has been in business for years. He's routinely portrayed as one of the most notable stringers on the East Coast, even stringing for some pros. Having grown up in Charlotte, I've encountered Don since I was 16...I am now close to 40. Having played tennis in the area since I was 12, I know a thing or two about tennis, I even sold and strung rackets as some of my first jobs. When I was really playing, I played competitively at the 4.0 level. So my point, I know tennis.\r\n\r\nMy experience with Don has never been rewarding. From trying to get good advice on a tennis racquet to string tension, I always feel like I am treated as if I don't know much about the game, nor worthy of his time. I continue to go back to his shop because, quite frankly, there aren't too many places around anymore that I feel aren't just selling tennis as an unwanted necessity, and he has a good selection of racquets, and since he has been stringing for so long, I trust he is doing a good job with my racquet.\r\n\r\nHowever, as noted, when trying to get advice from Don, while demo'ing now almost 10 $150+ racquets from his shop, all I am able to get out of him is the basic marketing lingo from the manufacturer. Nothing substantial that has helped me choose a racquet. In fact, I have garnered my selections from reading reviews at tennis-warehouse. On my last visit, I made the mistake of stating that the demo I thought was strung too tight...of course he went off on a little tirade, ultimately reaching the point of making me feel like I shouldn't question such, even though the demo was strung at the max for the frame (as all his demos are apparently). I have experienced the same when restringing my old Dunlop, no real advice other than this string will do ya! No questions about my game, playing style, etc. \r\n\r\nSo...unlike a lot of other shops, Don's has a good racquet selection, and he is a competent stringer....but bring your tour card if you want any personal attention.
