Non-faulty items must be sent back in their original packaging in an unused condition within 14 days of receiving the goods (This does not include items that have had custom work done to them at the customers request such as blade or chassis attachment, conversions etc as they are non returnable). They must be returned “As New“ and deemed in a re sellable condition by MDE Sports UK LTD Members of staff. The Customer will be responsible for returning the products back to the Head Office address and would have to cover any postage costs incurred on all returns. A full refund of the item and original delivery charges will be sent to the customer proving the above conditions are met.
MDE Sports UK LTD will be entitled to make a deduction from the refund for any diminution in value of the returned goods due to use which goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in our Showroom. The original delivery charges would however be refunded at our basic cost rate, if the customer has selected an express or next day option the difference will not be refunded.
After 14 days of receiving your items there is no longer a right to return non faulty items for a refund unless discretion is used by the MDE Sports UK LTD Management team. If a refund is authorised at this point then, along with a re stocking fee of 25% of the item cost, the original delivery charges will be deducted from your overall refund amount.
Items purchased from our Showroom are not covered by Distance Selling Regulations. Items cannot be returned unless they are damaged or faulty.

MDE Sports UK LTD are responsible for repairs, replacements or partial refunds for 6 years after your purchase date. However after the first 6 months has passed it will be up to the customer to independently prove there is a manufacturing defect with the products by providing an independent report and failure to do so will result in no action taken by MDE Sports UK LTD. The report must be from a registered expert and sent to our email address or postal address on the independent company’s official documents with a full breakdown of the issues or it will not be considered. Any product that is deemed to have become faulty through customer misuse rather than via manufacturing defect will not be eligible for a replacement or refund.
Please be aware that due to nature of the sports we supply MDE Sports UK LTD staff may request a photo of the damaged item at any stage to verify if the item is covered by any guarantee due to the type of damage that has been sustained.
Please see below for items that are not guaranteed:
Hockey Sticks, Shafts, Blades

Skates Damaged by Incorrect Sizing
If skates have become damaged due to a customer purchasing the incorrect size they will not be eligible for a replacement or refund. This is only applicable to online sales as we are unable to select the correct sizes for you. We do our best to provide you with size measuring charts and other help but cannot guarantee correct sizing as help we can provide online and over the phone is limited and it will be the customers responsibility to check the fit is correct when the item is delivered prior to use.
Damage due to incorrect sizing is very apparent and a customer may be asked to send a photo of a damaged skate if we suspect this to be the case.
Any sizing issues of skates purchased at our showroom can be bought back immediately for a free exchange or refund (Provided the skates were tried on in store and we fitted you, if we did not have the opportunity to fit the skates then it would be the same process as the online purchases). You must bring your original receipt with you or our staff will not be able to offer you a refund however an exchange may be offered.
