About Us

The retail division of Courtside Sports was founded by Rose Del Rosario and Albrecht Klieber in 1990. Located in Victoria, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, Courtside Sports has been internationally recognized as maintaining the highest professional standards for racquet specialty stores in North America.

Courtside Sports staff members are all racquet sports enthusiasts, high-level competitive players and current and former teaching pros. Our racquet technicians have extensive racquet stringing and service experience originating as far back as 1978. All our racquet stringers are USRSA Certified Master Racquet Technicians or in apprenticeship for achieving this high level of racquet service excellence. No other business in Canada has put more stringers through the exhaustive USRSA Master Racquet Technician exam since the program’s induction in the early nineties. At courtsidesports.com, you will receive expert professional advice on ALL of your racquet sports needs.

Courtside Sports offers a full selection of racquet stringing and customization services.  We are United States Racquet Stringers Association members and have three Master Racquet Technicians on staff.  Whatever your racquet stringing needs are, we can help.  If you specific questions about the services we offer, or would like some assistance in choosing the right string for your racquet, purchasing a stringing machine or for any other technical racquet related inquiries, please email us at info@courtsidesports.com.
