While we are active in ensuring stock levels are as accurate as possible, some items from time to time may be out of stock. When an item ordered is out of stock, a member of our team will be in touch with any customer affected within 24 hours of purchase. Where possible, that item will be ordered in and sent out on an express delivery service, minimizing any delay experienced. Where applicable, any delivery cost paid by the customer will be refunded. 

In the case of our tennis racket stock, we may be in touch to offer a grip build up service. This process involves us taking the same racket in a smaller grip size and applying a specially designed heat wrap sleeve under the factory grip. This sleeve raises the grip up exactly one size, for example turning a L2 into a L3. Once applied underneath the grip, the sleeve is completely unnoticeable and cannot be seen unless the grip is removed. The sleeve does not in anyway affect the performance of the racket, other than increasing the grip size. This service is provided free of charge.
