IMPORTANT

We would like to notify you that numerous After Sales requests regarding badminton racquets are unjustified and for the majority of the time, the issues do not have any "manufacturer defects". The link below displays a small, illustrated guide that correctly summarises the requests that can be refused by the brands and reasons for the refusals. Indeed, with roughly 15 years of experience, we have observed that 75% of the problems derive from a handling error and/or damage caused by a third party (EX : during a transportation bump, irritation or when the racquet is getting restrung). For instance, if you receive your racquet with a crack (most of the time on the top and in the middle of the frame or at the grommet area) when you left it with someone to get it strung, it is with the store/stringing professional who strung the racquet that you must sollicit (very few stringers are truly trained for badminton stringing, therefore, we advise you to verify the racquet's condition after every time you get it re-strung and if there is a crack, you can ask the store/stringing professional for compensation for damages). An order can be subject to several deliveries. 

Guarantee Guide for badminton racquets and the principal causes of refusal. 

You have correctly taken account for the above "alert" and have read the "Guarantee Guide"; and despite all of this information, you still believe there is a manufacturer defect on your badminton racquet ? In this case, please respect the following instructions to begin the procedure. You are now trying to have your racquet be determined as "under guarantee".

1. General Information 

  • The delay of a commercial guarantee for a badminton racquet is : 6 months (starting on the delivery date). Once this delay has been surpassed, the brands consider (justifiably) that there cannot be a manufacturer defect because in this case, a badminton racquet, that is both light and fragile, would never take that much time to crack/break.
  • If you had requested for your racquet to be strung upon purchasing your racquet, the stringing service will be complementary if the racquet was purchased less than a month ago. Once this delay has been exceeded, the stringing fees are at the expense of the customer. 
  • The return shipping fees are at the customer's expense.   
  • Your request will NOT be handled if the string is no longer in the racquet. As indicated in the "Guarantee guide", half of the After Sales cases derive from a stringing error. The fact that there is no longer a string in the racquet makes it impossible for the brands' experts to determine the cause of the problem (EX: no verification that the string pattern had been respected) - and thus the manufacterer's guarantee will be automatically refused.
  • Only the racquets that have been restrung by a professional can be accepted by the After Sales service. If the racquet has been restrung, please send the invoice for this service when you begin your After Sales request. 
  • There is no guarantee for broken strings (justifiably considered to be "consumable by the brands). No After sales service will be performed for this kind of problem. However, if you have received a racquet with original strings that have been broken almost instantaneously (it is rare, but it can happen with any brand), we can accept this request as a "gesture of goodwill" and ship you a string pack for free. In this case, please send us an email at this address with the requested information (which will already be outlined in the body of the email). The email must be sent at the lastest 15 days after the reception of the racquet.  

YONEX : A particularity exists for YONEX badminton racquets. Before proceeding, please be aware of the official brand procedure.  

2. Beginning your After Sales procedure 

 Please respect the following procedure to begin an After Sales treatment.    

  1. Return the racquet via Colissimo as a recorded delivery parcel in the original packaging (or any package that is appropriate for a badminton racquet) to the following address : Lardé Sports - 11 rue des Cigognes - 67960 Entzheim (France).
  2. Add the completed After Sales Form, along with a copy of the invoice. If you have purchased the racquet at a stand and you do not have an invoice, please inform us by writing the exact date of the stand, the city and the name of the person that was in charge of the stand (if you know it) on a separate piece of paper. If you do not have an invoice, do not hesitate to ask us for another one. With the new website, previous invoices are not available on your customer account.
  3. Send us an email to this address with the After Sales request form attached. We advise you to keep your request email saved somewhere.    

Please note that failure to respect this procedure will result in a request refusal by our After Sales team. 

3. Further steps in the process

  • Once we have received your racquet, the racquet will then be transmitted to the concerned brand with all of your documents (the invoice is the most important document as we/the brand need to determine if the model is still under guarantee in order for the manufacturer to correctly verify if the racquet comes from an authorised distributor).

This procedure takes roughly 1 month. Once the brand makes a decision, you will be notified by the After Sales manager (the person who you sent the original email to). If you have not received an answer after 6 weeks, please contact us (re-send us the email you have originally sent us, click "respond to all" and inform us that you still have not received any news or information regarding your After Sales request.
