Ashaway terminates distributorship

August 20, 2015

Ashaway, RI – Ashaway Racket Strings has terminated Harrow Sports as a distributor of Ashaway strings, the company has announced. In addition, Ashaway will no longer supply SuperNick® XL squash strings for factory stringing in Harrow frames.

“It has come to our attention that Harrow racquets have not been strung with Ashaway string for some time now,” said Ashaway’s Steve Crandall, “and it is important that the squash market is properly informed of this change in Ashaway’s policy.”

Ashaway Racket Strings are made by Ashaway Line & Twine Mfg. Co., the only U.S. manufacturer of string for squash, tennis, racquetball, and badminton. Operated by the Crandall family since 1824, Ashaway has been making racquet strings since 1949, and is responsible for several important technical innovations. Ashaway has been the Official String of USA Racquetball for more than ten years, and is also the Official String of Professional Tennis Registry. Ashaway Line & Twine Mfg. Co. also makes braided products for medical and industrial applications. For more information visit
