In 2000 Mauve® Sports-MSV was founded by Dr. Karl-Eberhard Mauve. He has a longstanding experience in developing, manufacturing and distributing tennis products. From the very beginning he is very passionate about the right stringing of tennis racquets because string material and string tension count for at least 50-70% of a racquet’s performance and need to be aligned with each individual player type. That is why Dr. Karl-Eberhard Mauve developed the MiniSTT, the smallest electronic device to measure the tension of a string bed. Since then 15,000 pieces of the MiniSTT are sold. In the beginning of the company’s history Mauve® Sports-MSV offered everything around playing tennis. Later on we focused on the development and the distribution of high quality tennis strings and grips under the brand name of MSV Tennis.
