    How big can the group be? If I had 1000 people would that be allowed? This is very cool by the way. I used to string my own racquets back in the day.

      Hi Corey - I didn't set any limits on group size because quite frankly, getting that many stringers in one place at one time is only going to happen at an event like this, not to mention how hard it would be to get the number of stringing machines together if someone actually wanted to attempt to break the record.
