If your delivery hasn’t arrived within the expected delivery time, please check that the courier hasn’t left a card for you or delivered to a neighbour. If you chose a tracked service, you can use your tracking number to find out where your parcel is by using the courier’s website.

PRICE AND PAYMENT

The prices on our website include VAT for deliveries within the UK/EU but not delivery charges. Though we strive to ensure that the prices on our website (which include VAT) are accurate, it is possible that an item may be priced incorrectly. If there are any discrepancies or you feel a price is incorrect, please contact us before you confirm payment.

For purchases paid for by Credit/Debit card, payment will be taken when you place your order. This payment will show on your statement as being made to Gymnastics Enterprise Ltd. We do not retain any credit/debit card details on our system.

Once an order has been paid and despatched it cannot be altered/cancelled and will be delivered to you.

 

No retrospective discount will be applied to any orders including where an item is now on offer at a lower price as part of a Sales or Special Offer campaign than you may have paid for it.

Please note that we are under no obligation to honour a lower price if it is obvious that this is a pricing error e.g., similar items are at a higher price or the price is clearly too low for the item.

RETURNS POLICY

We hope you are completely satisfied with everything you buy from the GYMSHOP online shop.   With clothing, the main reason for returns is due to customers choosing the incorrect size, so we recommend that you use the individual size guides on the product pages to check against your own measurements, as returning unsuitable items to us will be at your own cost.

However if, when you receive the goods, they are not exactly as you were expecting, you have up to 7 working days (Mon-Fri excluding Weekends & Public Holidays) from the date of delivery to return them to us for a refund or exchange. Any Sale or Special Offer items must be returned within 7 days. After 7 working days from delivery the items will be deemed as delivered and accepted and so we will be unable to exchange or refund them. This does not affect your statutory rights to return faulty goods.

Items must be returned to us in an ‘as new’ condition and in the original packaging and, with items of clothing, their original tags. You can log into your account to inform us of your intention to return items – and please enclose your Returns Form with the goods when you return them stating the reason for return. If you do not have your original returns form, you can download a new one by going into your Account, opening your Order and reprinting the Returns Note.

If you are requesting a refund, this will take 5-10 days to appear in your account from the day we receive the items back in our warehouse. Your refund will show in your account as coming from Gymnastics Enterprise Ltd. We can only make refunds back to the original card or account used to purchase the goods.  If you are returning an item given to you as a present, the refund will go to the person who placed the original order.

We do not offer Exchanges. If the item you return is unsuitable, this will be credited on return and you can then buy the correct item.

You will be responsible for the shipping costs of returning unsuitable items to us, and your original shipping cost is non-refundable.

If you order from us in December for a Christmas present, you have until 21st January to return these to us – again, in as new, unworn/unused condition and in original packaging with their original tags (if applicable).

Should you feel that the item you have purchased is Faulty within Warranty please contact us on 0345 129 7129 ext 2395 with details of the fault and your original purchase order. We will then send you a returns label (UK Customers Only) to use to return the faulty item so it can be returned for inspection.

For Overseas Customers who believe an item is faulty within warranty, we refund up to a maximum of £15.00 towards the cost of returning faulty items – and this will only be paid when the item is confirmed as faulty and if you have forwarded us proof of posting. Please ensure the Customs Documentation on the return parcel states ‘British Returned Goods’ or they will be held by UK Customs and import duty will be charged. Should goods be held by UK Customs you will be responsible for paying this duty. Your goods will not be released from Customs unless the charges are paid. If you do not want to pay the Custom’s charges, you can ask your Courier to return the goods to you – they will probably charge you for this service.

If an item is covered by a manufacturing warranty, this is in relation to manufacturing faults and not for general wear and tear. Gym equipment is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty directly. The manufacturer’s warranty period will be detailed on your documentation.

Faulty items will be exchanged and payment will only be refunded if there is no stock available for exchange when we process your return. All items are subject to quality testing by our returns team and exchanges/refunds made only if they are satisfied there is a fault with the goods you have returned.

All returns should be sent to: GYMSHOP Returns Department, Gymnastics Enterprises Limited, Unit 1, Lilleshall Hall Farm, Newport, Shropshire,TF10 9AS

OVERSEAS DELIVERIES & RETURNS

Orders to an address outside of the UK (Overseas Orders) cannot be completed on line as the delivery charge will be calculated separately depending on the delivery address, size and weight of your order. We recommend that Overseas Customers contact us at customerservice@british-gymnastics.net prior to placing an order.

Please also note that your order may be subject to Customs Charges/Import Tax on arrival in your home country and these have to be paid by yourselves before your Custom’s department will release the goods to you. British Gymnastics are unable to advise you as to what these charges will be so please check your local Customs & Import information before placing an order.

Our standard returns policy (see above) applies to overseas customers – but please note that you will be responsible for the cost of returning unwanted items to us within 14 days of receipt of your order ( is this delivery at their address or us shipping it?. Please ensure that you mark the Customs Declaration as ‘British Returned Goods’ or you will be charged import duty when your items arrive in the UK. British Gymnastics will not pay these charges so your items will then be returned to you by your Courier at your own cost.

YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL

As a UK based customer, should you choose to cancel your order under the terms of the Distance Selling Regulations you must do so in writing within 7 days of your order arriving with you. You are responsible for covering the cost of returning them to British Gymnastics. You can return the goods to us provided they are in ‘as new’ condition, unworn/unused and in original packaging. Once your returns have been approved by our Returns team, we will then refund your order and the original shipping costs.

Any items that are not returned in an ‘as new’ condition will be not be refunded and will be set aside for you to arrange collection of within 21 days. If you would like us to return the items to you, an £9 handling & carriage cost fee will be charged.

CLAIMS DAMAGE IN TRANSIT/MISSING ITEMS

We make every effort to ensure your goods arrive in perfect condition. However, should your items arrive damaged or you believe there is a discrepancy between what you ordered and what has been delivered, please contact us immediately.

Claims against a courier (tracked services only) for damage or pilfering have to be made within 5 days of delivery – claims made after this period cannot be accepted. Please retain the original packaging as the courier may require this as evidence of possible tampering.

We will then begin an investigation with the courier and our own warehouse team – the initial enquiry may take two-three working days as the courier company/Royal Mail will need to interview the driver. During this time we will undertake an internal investigation with our Warehouse team.

We recommend you select a tracked courier service as items sent standard 1st or 2nd class post are not insured for damage or pilfering.
