About Samuels Tennisport

Samuels Tennisport’s staff includes United States Racquet Association Certified Racquet Technicians, of which there are only about 400 in the U.S.  Former teaching pros and college players comprise our staff, all of whom are tennis enthusiasts like yourself.

Founded in 1983 by John Samuels, a former University of Cincinnati player, Samuels Tennisport has received awards such as Cincinnati Magazine’s “Best Tennis Store” and Tennis Industry Magazine’s “U.S. Best Retailer” award.  John is a regional tester for the United States Racquet association, testing stringers from stores around the Midwest. His staff must become certified to string for Samuels Tennisport.  John is an on-site owner who keeps a close watch on the quality of his staff’s racquet stringing.  Serious tennis players most often cite “consistency” as what they are looking for when getting racquets restrung. With a well- trained staff  that does not change often, Samuels Tennisport can offer stringing that allows the player one less thing to think about when stepping onto the court.
