The JET Concept

is an exclusive technical expertise to personalize racquets and string-beds for tournament players of all levels.

Conceived by John Elliot and successfully practiced since many years, his methods can develop the players’ capacities to optimize their games by perfectly adapting player’s racquets and string-beds to their specific requirements.

 

 

An on-court analysis of the player, racquet and string-bed, combined with an application of the most appropriate solutions, significantly improves the capacity to attain an even higher level of performances on the court. Durable improvement is the consequence of several apparently minor adjustments and changes, when precisely identified and expertly applied, optimal performances are tangible. The JET Concept is the reference in this craft of fine tuning the player’s material.

 

Our services have been destined primarily to professional players and ITF juniors, we also offer our expertise to exacting amateurs and enthusiastic veterans, now part of our most loyal clients.

 

The staff is proud to provide the finest quality of service to our clients, since 25 years, they have ensured the pure tradition of genuine craftsmen, rewarded by unequalled player satisfaction.
