How to pack a badminton or tennis racket for shipping

If you are shipping tennis or badminton rackets, follow our instructions on how to properly pack them to ensure they arrive safely to the desired destination. Of course, you can send other tennis equipment together with the tennis racket by courier.

  1. Pack the tennis racket in its bag. If you don’t have it, use other protective materials, such as bubble wrap, to wrap it around.
  2. Use enough bubble wrap and/or brown paper to wrap the racket and pay attention to the strings.
  3. Find an appropriate tennis racket shipping box. Place the racket in the box and fill out the empty space with crumpled paper and/or packing peanuts to prevent the racket from moving during transit.
  4. Add any other tennis or sports equipment you might want to send together with the tennis racket.
  5. Close and seal the box with adhesive tape.

Is my tennis racket insured if I send it by courier?
Yes, all deliveries organized through Eurosender have basic insurance included in the price. The coverage depends on the shipping service and the type of item you are sending. For extra peace of mind, you can purchase additional insurance during the order process. Just note that when you are shipping a tennis racket, it must be properly packed, preferably in a tennis racket shipping box.
What is the best way to pack a tennis racket for shipping – can I just use the original bag?
Please note that most courier companies won’t allow you to send your tennis racket if it is packed only in its original bag. The best way to ship a tennis racket is to place it in the original bag then place it all together in a shipping box of appropriate size. Make sure your tennis or badminton racket is well protected so it won’t get damaged during transit.
