Yonex Badminton Racket Warranty: A Comprehensive Guide

Yonex badminton rackets are known for their performance and durability. But what happens if your trusted Yonex takes an unfortunate tumble and cracks? Fear not, Yonex offers a one-year manufacturer's warranty to ensure you're covered for unforeseen defects. However, navigating the warranty process can be confusing. This guide will delve into the specifics of the Yonex warranty, helping you understand what's covered, what's not, and how to make a successful claim.


Understanding the Coverage:

The Yonex Limited One-Year Warranty applies strictly to manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship. This means Yonex will cover issues like:

  • Cracked Frame: This is the most common warranty claim, and it typically covers cracks that appear spontaneously during regular gameplay, not due to mishandling.
  • Faulty Grommets: Grommets are the small eyelets where the strings pass through the frame. The warranty covers grommets that break or become damaged due to a manufacturing defect.

What's Not Included:

The warranty does not extend to wear and tear, or damage caused by:

  • Misuse: This includes mishandling, clashes with your partner's racket while playing doubles, hitting the racket on the ground, using excessive force, or using it for anything other than badminton.
  • String Breaks: Unfortunately, broken strings are a natural part of the game and aren't covered by the warranty.
  • Improper Stringing: Using an unqualified stringer or incorrect string tension can damage the frame. The warranty does not cover such damage.
  • Cosmetic Damage: Scratches, paint chips, or grip wear and tear are considered normal cosmetic deterioration.

Making a Successful Warranty Claim:

Here's a step-by-step guide to increase your chances of a successful Yonex warranty claim:

  1. Don't Cut the Strings! Leave the strings intact. This helps Yonex assess the damage and determine if it's a manufacturing defect.
  2. Gather Your Documentation: Locate your original receipt or invoice as proof of purchase.
  3. Contact us at Inquire about the specific warranty claim process. 
  4. Prepare the Racket: Package the racket securely in its original case (if available) or a sturdy box. Include a brief description of the alleged defect and your contact information.

Important Considerations:

  • Timeline: The warranty claim process can take several weeks, sometimes even months, as Yonex inspects the racket to determine the cause of the damage.
  • Approve or Reject: If Yonex approves the warranty,  a new frame will be sent to the dealer.
  • Promotional Products: Promotional rackets or demonstration models are typically not covered under the warranty.

Maximizing Your Racket's Lifespan:

By following these tips, you can minimize the need for a warranty claim and extend the life of your Yonex racket:

  • Proper Storage: Store your racket in a cool, dry place, ideally in its original case or a thermal bag to protect it from extreme temperatures.
  • String Maintenance: Regularly restring your racket with appropriate string tension by a qualified stringer. This reduces stress on the frame.
  • Playing Technique: Develop proper badminton technique to minimize mishits that can damage the racket.


The Yonex Limited One-Year Warranty offers peace of mind for badminton enthusiasts. However, understanding the specific coverage and following proper procedures are crucial for a successful claim. By taking good care of your racket, you can enjoy its performance for years to come. Remember, the warranty is a safety net – prioritize proper technique and responsible handling to keep your Yonex badminton racket in top condition.
