The period stated within which you will receive your order is approximate, except where specific next-day or named-day delivery options are selected. Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order and stated in the Order Confirmation. Please note that your goods may be part-shipped. 

Any items that are received damaged or incorrect will be considered for repair, replacement, part-replacement or refund if reported to Sure Shot Badminton within 30 days of receipt. Please note that where blades and rubbers are concerned the ratings given are a general guide and are not binding in terms of fault if they don’t precisely agree with the interpretation of any particular individual.

In the event that Sure Shot Badminton or products sold by Sure Shot Badminton are at fault postage costs for returns will be liable to be refunded up to the value of £7.99. If the product is verified as not faulty upon its return the product will be returned to you subject to a £20.00 carriage charge, which must be paid in advance of its return.

In the event that Sure Shot Badminton or products sold by Sure Shot Badminton are not at fault, all postage costs for returns will be liable to be paid by you and items must be returned in their original condition and packaging if notification of their return is made after 14 days from the date of receipt.

In the event that a price reduction has been introduced for any goods after a purchase has been made, Sure Shot Badminton will provide a part-refund for the difference between the price paid for the item and the reduced price introduced on condition that a claim for such a part-refund is made within 14 days of receipt of the goods.

All product characteristic ratings found on the Sure Shot Badminton website are taken from a combination of professional opinion resulting from our own testing and/or guidance provided by the manufacturers. These ratings are therefore only considered to be an approximate guide and Sure Shot Badminton cannot be held responsible if your interpretation of these ratings fails to match your own opinion of the product's characteristics after initial use.

Title to any product ordered will pass to you once Sure Shot Badminton has received payment in full for that product.

The Couriers will attempt delivery twice, after this, you as the customer are obliged to collect the goods from your local branch.

If your delivery address is outside of the United Kingdom you maybe subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Any such additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. You should note that customs policies vary widely from country to country; Sure Shot Badminton advises each customer to contact their local customs office for further information.

From time to time Sure Shot Badminton may engage a 3rd party to fulfil orders, a contract for the sale of these products will be made between the 3rd party supplier and yourself.
