Returns Policy

Returns Policy:

For a return to be considered the online purchase must meet the following criteria:

  • Returned within 30 days of receiving your purchase;
  • Unworn and unused with original tags still attached;
  • In the original packing, which must be in its original condition;
  • In a resalable condition, both the item and the packaging.

We do not exchange products. To change a size or style, the original item must be returned; then the new item purchased.


If a product is wrongly described, different from a sample shown or doesn't do what it is supposed to do, you may choose between a replacement, store credit or refund. Please note the incorrectly sent item will need to be returned in its original condition.


Warranty Claims:

Warrantable Items. A warrantable item is one which is covered by a manufacturer's warranty. This is often the case in brand-name electrical items, mobile phones, computers and IT products.

Warranty claims are handled by the manufacturer, please contact them immediately and follow their Returns Policy and Instructions. If you require any assistance or contact details please feel free to contact us.

Products damaged in transit must be reported to us within 24 hours of receipt of the product.

If you receive a product that you think is defective, you are to immediately contact our Customer Service Team who may provisionally determine whether the product is defective. You have 14 days from the date of delivery to report a defective product.

For a credit to be issued, the item must be returned to us in its original condition - undamaged, including the outer packaging.


All racquets must be in new condition, showing no signs of use (i.e. ball fuzz, plastic removed from handle, scrapes on bumper guard, etc.) to receive a full refund (excluding string).


Shoes must be returned in the condition they were received.
Please use the box the shoes were shipped in to return shoes. Do not place any shipping labels or tape directly on the shoe box.
Please make sure shoes do not have any sock fuzz/lint, human or pet hair, dirt, or any other foreign substances before returning them.
Please send the shoes with a note stating if you would like credit or an exchange.


All apparel must be returned unwashed and unworn with original tags still attached.
Apparel that has been worn or washed cannot be returned or exchanged.

Once the item is returned and assessed, we will provide you with a credit on your Tennis Direct Australia account for the product amount only (excludes delivery & stringing).

If the product is deemed by customer service/supplier NOT to be defective, we may, in our absolute discretion, refuse to replace the product or offer a refund.


How to request a return for defective or DOA items

Please contact us as soon as the problem arises stating your order number, the item(s) you are returning and details of the problem. Our Customer Sales Team will then issue a Return Authorisation Number (RA#) and provide you with a return address. Please feature the RA# prominently on the outer packaging when you send it back to us.

Please do not write the number on the item packaging itself. The RA# is valid for 14 days so please return the item immediately.

Once the item is received by us, and provided the returned item meets our DOA or defective items criteria, we will provide you with a credit to your account, a replacement product or a full refund to your original method of payment. This will be done within 7 business days of receiving the item and advise you of the outcome.

No refunds, credits or replacements are offered if you have changed your mind about the ordered products, make an incorrect choice, or failed to verify and accurately provide information when placing an order.
