Over 90 Years of History

In 1931, 14-year-old tennis player Herb Markwort learned to restring his rackets because he couldn’t afford to pay to have someone else do it. Soon fellow players came knocking and he charged a dollar to restring their rackets. With his shop setup on his parents’ back porch in St. Louis, a nosy neighbor inquired if he had a business license. The next day Herb went downtown to get one and Markwort Sporting Goods was born.
