Returns & Refunds
Returns Policy (for UK customers)
Our returns policy lasts 14 days from receipt apart from orders placed between 27 October 2023 until 23 December 2023*. Between these dates, items can be returned up to the 8 January 2024.
If 14 days have gone by since you received your goods and you have not contacted us, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange; naturally this excludes faulty goods that have not been misused or mis-handled
Notably roller bag handles which are prone to breaking if the bag has been dragged down stairs and whose damage is easily identifiable and is not covered by warranty. To re-iterate, please carry all roller bags down stairs else the extending supports will snap in a uniform and identifiable manner that is not covered by any warranty or guarantee.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and your right to cancel starts 14 days of purchase, and ends 14 days from receiving the item.
Please wrap the item in paper, or a plastic bag.
Please do not stick sellotape, the return slip or anything to the box / packaging as this can render it un-sale-able. The item's packaging from the manufacturer must be returned in the condition it was received in.
Several types of goods are exempt from being returned: customised goods including embroidered or printed bowling shirts, custom designed bowling balls, custom designed pins, engraved bowling balls and custom drilled bowling balls - these can not be returned unless faulty.
To complete your return, you must contact us first, and we will require a receipt or proof of purchase. We will advise on where the return should be sent, sometimes to us or occasionally to our suppliers to allow for swifter refunds.
Refunds (if applicable) Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 7 days of the goods being returned, however please note that delays should be queried with your card issuer once you have received notification that the refund has been made.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
A bit more re the above... If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your Credit Card, Paypal or bank account again. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us. If you have received a system message from ourselves, Shopify Payments or Paypal, to state we have processed the refund, then please be advised that there is nothing we can do to speed this up and you need to contact the relevant payments company / bank.
Sale items (if applicable)
Only regular priced items may be refunded, unfortunately sale items cannot be refunded unless faulty.
