Returns Policy (for UK customers)
Our returns policy lasts 14 days from receipt apart from up until 6 January. 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 not covered by warranty.
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.
Several types of goods are exempt from being returned: customised goods including embroidered or printed shirts, 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. Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer, please send it to the address below.
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.

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.
