I recommend Jensen Clarke for racket stringing. I had Jensen string my tennis racket because I didn’t want to travel 15 miles out of my way to the closest tennis store to have it done. Jensen is an instructor at the club where I hit and a certified stringer. I saw his sign at the check-in desk one day and thought I would try him out.
Jensen was very responsive to my email inquiry, and we worked out when I could leave my racket at the desk after hitting and when I could pick it up again a few days later when I returned for another clinic. He made it incredibly convenient for me, and on top of that, did a great job. I’ve had rackets feel very different after new string jobs, but from the first time I used it, my racket felt great. And for a very reasonable price!
I just want to take a moment and thank all of you for providing such wonderful feedback. Your comments mean a great deal to me. I hope that I continue to meat and exceed your expectations. Additionally, I had to make sure all of you know how much i appreciate you and your continuing business. I couldn't do it without you! Thank you so much! =D

Portland Athletic Club is a fablous place for indoor tennis and Old School Fitness. I love tennis and I think free weights are a much better work out than machines. I tend to get lazy with machines and free weights involve much more muscle tissue overall than machines.
Marion (owner) does constant maintenance and has been doing so for 37 years. Anyone that comes in is usually put off by the looks of the place and the parking, but once you come in and make it a routine you start realizing how much value you get for your money. This is not a place where you have to pay $500 to $1000 to start a membership and I only pay $20 per month for fitness so I LOVE IT!
My family and I took tennis lessons from tennis pro, David Brothers. He is altruistic in his desire for others to learn the game and is an excellent teacher. I highly recommend him. However, this does not apply to the owner and the manager of the business office, who dictate operating standards. The poor facilities and dilapidated appearance more deeply reflect the owner and business office's care for customer service and satisfaction. The owner is inflexible in charges regarding the juniors program, even if there is a change in schedule and will require months of payment regardless of services rendered. It is difficult to understand what the overall mission or direction of this facility is, outside of adding value to themselves but not their clients. Anyone contemplating joining this club should reconsider that action. The next generation of ownership may have the ability to alter the culture, but currently, there does not appear to be change in the near future.
