I am sorry to say that I am the one responsible for putting this motley crew together...If only I’d stayed a teacher! What started as the need to keep my rackets in order & to do the odd restring for friends,has grow into the company we have today. Long gone are the days of Rapid Repairs & working from my bedroom, then attic then finally the garage. That said our ethos is the same – a \ principled approach to everything we do, with an emphasis on quality. I don’t think anyone strings as well as our team, nor beats our customer service. My role is simple – keep it all going in the right direction !

Since starting with Gannon Sports on a part time basis back in something like 2003, my role has quietly grown arms & legs to the point that there is no escape! I get asked to do everything! I guess my role is primarily to back up Brian & fill in wherever I’m most needed. This results in my job being pretty varied, I run stores,manage outside events & the website, produce our marketing, do staff training, meet with reps. I help out with the soclal media, general office work, stringing… basically any other tasks that need done! A jack of all trades, hopefully master of some, probably more of general dogs body!
