Klipspringer History

In the 1920’s the Jackson family established a company specializing in tennis strings by boiling down and rendering waste products from abattoirs’ meat processing plants. The original western suburban site in Melbourne Australia is still the home of Klipspringer today.

In the 30’s the company began producing natural gut tennis strings which immediately became popular. The first strings were made from mutton but it didn’t take long for Klipspringer to start innovating, and the world’s first string made from inedible serosa ribbons was soon developed. Beef was chosen because its tensile strength is higher than that of mutton.

Soon Dunlop/Slazenger and Spalding were buying all their strings from Klipspringer.The relationship with Dunlop continued for many years with both companies establishing themselves as market leaders. In the late 1970’s Klipspringer began to implement some fundamental changes and became the first company to manufacture 36ft (11m) strings to cater to the new, oversized racquets. Later, Klipspringer was first to change to 40ft (12m) lengths as racquets continued to evolve.

Klipspringer uses the finest raw materials and for this reason Klip strings are also found in the world's best harp strings.

The 1980’s also saw Klipspringer move into synthetic gut tennis strings, sourcing the highest quality products from Japan and around the world. Stringing machines and other tennis related accessories also became part of the business. Today, of the original group of natural gut manufacturers, Klipspringer is the only company left worldwide to be run by the same family group as well as the only Authentic Australian brand.

In 2002 Klipspringer continued its growth with the opening of their first US office and distribution centre in San Diego CA. Klip America carries a full line of synthetic gut as well as their now famous natural gut and gut hybrids. Klipspringer plans on being a big player in the string business for many more years to come.
