Babolat offers a one-year manufacturer’s defect warranty stating that the racquet is free from defect in material or workmanship within this period of time. This warranty is only valid for purchases made directly from Babolat or authorized Babolat dealers. All warrantied racquets must be returned to the authorized dealer with proof of purchase. Babolat will not accept any returns directly from consumers except for Babolat.us online purchases. The warranty policy does not apply to any condition caused by negligence, abuse, faulty stringing, maintenance, handling, or normal wear and tear. Racquets that have multiple breaks, show signs of impact on the frame, signs of visible wear, impact on butt cap, bumper or grommet, or visible frame fibers fall under normal wear and tear and are not covered by the warranty.
