Some products need to be assessed
We may need to assess your product to determine whether a repair, replacement or refund is appropriate. Certain products may need to be sent to the manufacturer or their repair agent for assessment, such as:
- cricket bats, tennis racquets and similar items;
- clothing, compression garments, some footwear;
- scooters, skateboards, roller skates.
WARRANTY CRICKET BATS
- All bats sold by Little Rookie Sport will include a 12 month warranty against manufacturing faults.
- Bats that have a manufacturer’s fault believed not to be caused by the Customer, and are unrepairable, will be exchanged, refunded or given store credit at the choice of the Customer.
- Bats will not be exchanged or refunded due to the handle breaking, edge, toe or surface cracking. This is not regarded as a fault of the bat other than the fact that it is the nature of the product and it will not alter the performance or quality of the bat.
- The price of the bat does not indicate the longevity of the bat. It is a known fact that the most expensive bats which are made of Grade 1 willow are soft in its nature as its quality and performance is superior. These bats by their nature can develop cracks earlier than the lower grade willow bats which by their nature are more dense.
- There will be no warranty on bats that break due to the use of bowling machine balls. Little Rookie Sport strictly recommends that bats should not be used to play against bowling machine balls.
- There will be no warranty due to dampness & swelling in toe. Water & willow are not a good combination. We recommend the use of a rubber toe shield to help prevent damage.
- Little Rookie Sport recommends that added protection should be used when purchasing a new bat. An extratec or fibreglass sleeve, shoe goo or rubber toe for the bat will assist in the preservation of the bat.
- We recommend that all bats purchased must be knocked in. Lack of knocking in may result in the bat cracking earlier than a knocked in bat.
- Knocking in service- Little Rookie through a third party can offer a full knocking in service. Bats are knocked in using an automatic machine with 15,000 knocks applied and oiled with extratec applied no extra knocking in required. Due to the knocking in process some indentations may be visible, this will not affect the bat's performance and only superficial. No returns offered for bats that have been knocked in via this service.
In some cases a refund, replacement or repair may not be offered if you:
- substantially modify the product;
- misuse the product contrary to user instructions or packaging labels; or
- simply change your mind.
Certain products are usually excluded under our Returns Policy unless they are faulty, these may include:
- tailor made customer orders;
- underwear (thermals and swimwear) and socks; and
- gift-cards, vouchers, credit vouchers.
