Excessive wear
In general terms, breakages resulting from manufacturing defects occur within the early period of racket use. Breakages resulting after longer term use and characterised by excessive wearing of the paint or frame are considered as normal use with regard to the ‘life’ of the racket. Excessive wear is not covered by warranty.

We do not offer any form of warranty on string wear or breakage or snapped grommets.

Improper Stringing
Damage caused to the racquet frame resulting from improper re-stringing or improper mounting of the racquet in the machine or damaged caused by the clamps slipping during the stringing process are all characterised by frame cracking, paint chipping or paint scratching on the inside of the racket hoop. The brands recommends that rackets are always strung by certified stringing professionals at specialised dealers. Improper stringing is not covered by warranty.
RESULT: Damaged Racket will not be replaced.

Racket Butt Cap
The racket butt cap is generally stapled to the racquet handle. On occasions, butt caps can become lose or detached. This issue can be easily and quickly repaired by removing the grip and either stapling or gluing the butt cap on to the handle. Loose racket butt caps are not covered by warranty.
