Buying used sports equipment can be a great alternative to buying new, since a lot of sports gear is often used only a time or two before someone decides to get rid of it. There are a few places on the Web for buying and selling used racquets and accessories. Some sites will offer only used gear, while others will list used and new items offered from individuals as well as companies. You can usually find tennis, racquetball, squash and badminton racquets, sport duffles, court eyewear, accessories, ping pong tables, and more.
The most well-known of the online used stores is, of course, eBay. Simply put, eBay works really well. You can find practically anything there.
Many of the sellers
on eBay are not individuals, but are actually small companies or an extension
of a large retail store. Many have the buying resources, experience and
shipping knowledge to get you a good deal on a used, refurbished or even
discounted new item.
One of the best things about eBay is that you can
read reviews of all the sellers written by their previous customers. Signing
up is free, fast and easy.
