30-DAY RETURNSIf you are unsatisfied with your items for any reason, you have 30 days to return your order. To return an item, products must be in the same condition we sent them to you. Products must be unworn and in their original packaging with labels and stickers still attached.
If products being returned came with free items as part of a promotion (e.g. free tennis balls), these items must also be returned. If they are not returned, we reserve the right to make a suitable deduction from your refund amount.
Please note that customised items such as restrings and regrips are exempt from this policy and can't be returned for refund or exchange.
All rackets must be returned with the strings still within the frame, regardless of condition. If a racket is returned to us without the strings, this voids the products warranty and it will be returned to you.
