Hockey Stick Breakages & Complaints:
Manufacturers will replace sticks that are obviously faulty and have failed very early in their usage – usually the first few weeks. Wear to the head is an inescapable feature of modern hockey game and manufacturers cannot and will not replace sticks for this reason. Simple effective methods and materials should be used to lessen wear to the head or shaft. Damage inflicted on a stick from clashes with other sticks is not a legitimate cause for complaint. Manufacturers will not replace any stick that is well used, well-worn or shows clear signs of damage having been inflicted on it.
The following are not covered and are not suitable for returning a stick:
Chips, scratches, nicks, “invisible cracks”, unravelling grip, cracks in the label, worn stick heel, loose particles inside the composite’s interior, rattles, vibration, or any other result of normal use. These problems will not affect play of the stick.
In the event of loose particles and rattles inside of the stick, this can usually be resolved by removing the end cap of the hockey stick and shaking the particles out.
Reverse Edge Hitting Damage
We are unable to offer a replacement or refund for damage caused by hitting the ball with the edge of the hockey stick. While the current FIH rules allow reverse edge hitting, the manufacturers warranties DO NOT cover this. If you hit the ball with this area of the stick, you do so entirely at your own risk.
Proof of Purchase
Customers are advised to retain their till receipt or order confirmation and to present this to us with any complaint in order to establish the exact age of the stick. Some suppliers will request this, or other form of proof of purchase, when a stick is returned under complaint.
