More than 25 years ago Patrick Lepere, a home stringer, started with his own brand of strings named TYGER.

When his business selling strings grew he realized there was an opportunity: selling quality stringing machines in what was a growing market. He vowed to create a range of stringing machines that would supply the needs of all stringers from beginner to professional and tournament stringers throughout Europe.

His dream was to create machines that were reliable, affordable, long lasting and a pleasure to use. Twenty five years on TYGER is the brand of strings and stringing machine with no equal:


  • Sells more stringing machines than any other company in Europe.
  • Has a range of tennis strings revered across Europe.
  • Full range of machines from basic manual to top of the range electronic.
  • The name ‘TYGER’ comes from the favorite animal of the founder.

Did you know?

  • Many European pro players have learned to string their own rackets on a TYGER stringing machine.
  • The unrivalled success of the strings and stringing machines led to the development of a powerful range of all the other products.
