Racquet Repair FAQS

Grommet Repairs

Can we replace badminton grommets?

Yes and this is done at point of restring if required. 

From time to time badminton racquet grommets may or may not need replacements. We see this problem in racquets from time to time that have had lots of play and try our best to assist with our approach below to avoid over charging customers for unnecessary repair work.

Essential Replacement:

When you restring with us, we undertake a grommet check in our initial racquet inspection. At the end of our initial badminton racquet inspection, we may advise you that x number of grommet(s) "need" replacement if we think that there will be a significant impact the string life from frame abrasion if not replaced. Please note that grommet charges apply at 50p each accordingly if you wish to proceed with the replacement(s). We do not take any responsibility for grommets as strings can break for a variety of reasons.

Beneficial Replacement:

At the end of our badminton racquet inspection and in some cases after a restring is undertaken, if no essential replacements are needed, we may also advise customers that x number of grommet(s) "may benefit" from replacement of mildly worn grommets at some stage in the future, but are not be essential at point of the current restring in order to preserve the replacement string set. Please note that grommet charges apply at 50p each accordingly if you wish to proceed with the beneficial replacement(s). Again, we do not take any responsibility for grommets as strings can break for a variety of reasons and not just worn grommets.

Although grommets can wear, we are always mindful of not over charging customers unnecessarily and make our recommendations based on the extent of grommet damage that will only impact the string life significantly. Otherwise you could be spending money unnecessarily on grommets that may look worn but not actually cause a break.
