Try Before You Buy

Why not try our racquet demonstration service? We are one of the very few companies that run a demo service. We have many satisfied customers who have taken advantage of our demo service before they have invested in their new "on-court weapon".

We have the most current, popular tennis, squash and badminton demonstration racquets for you to try before you buy - over 100 to choose from!

Our scheme is simple:

o    Come to our shop to book you demos - there is often a waiting list for the most popular racquets, so please be patient!

o    You can play with the racquet(s) for up to 7 days before returning them

o    We charge a £75 deposit per demo racquet you try (which is fully refundable upon the returning of the demo racquet and purchase of a new racquet. There is a £5 charge if you do not purchase a racquet)  - Please go to the bottom of the page to see a full list of our Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

We want you to enjoy the opportunity of playing with the latest racquets to help inform your buying choice. By making use of our demonstration scheme, you agree to the following terms and conditions.

How much does the demo scheme cost?

For each racquet you burrow, we charge a £75 deposit. We accept all major cards except AMX. This deposit is fully refundable against any racquet you buy from us (subject to the clarifications below). A £5 service charge will be made for each racquet if you do not purchase a new racquet from us.

How long can I keep the demo?

You must return the racquet(s) within 7 days after you have received them.

What happens if I return the racquet(s) late?

Keeping racquets longer than 7 days prevents other customers from trying them out. If any racquets are returned more than 2 weeks late, your deposit will be forfeited. The racquets will remain the property of The Racquet Centre.

What if I decide not to buy a racquet?

Simply return the demo(s) back us and we will refund the deposit less a £5 service charge per demo racquet.

What grip size are the demos?

All our demos are a grip size 3. You are welcome to add another grip or over grip to the racquet whilst you have it.

What happens if the strings break?

We try and ensure that all demo racquets are regularly strung, but string breakages are an unavoidable part of racquet sports. if the strings break, simply return the racquet to us for restringing - you will not be charged for the restring. Please do not have the racquet restrung by anyone else.

What happens if the frame brakes?

Frame breakages are your responsibility unless they are due to a manufacturing fault. In the unlikely situation that the frame breaks, please return it to us. We will return it to the manufacturer for checking. If they do not replace it, we will charge you for the cost of a new demo racquet.

How do I go about buying a racquet?

Simply return the demo(s) back and we will supply you with a brand new racquet with the correct grip size. The total price will be reduced by the sum of all the demo fees you have paid.

Can I have my new racquet(s) custom strung?

Many of our new racquets come pre-strung but we can string them up to your preference for a reduced cost. If it is factory strung, we charge £5 less than our normal stringing price for a new racquet to be custom strung.
