Care Guide

Thank you for shopping with Hawkinsport and we want you to be happy with the purchases you have made.

The following information details the best way to look after your purchases, but ALWAYS read the washing instructions in the garment.

CLOTHING

Fabric Conditioner

We advise against the use of fabric conditioner on any of our products.  Fabric conditioner is a rinsing agent and once used it damages the yarns within the fabric causing pilling and misshaping. Fabric conditioner also rinses off any protective coatings such as Teflon, therefore degrading the fabric further. It also contains a bleaching agent, which initially makes the garment appear brighter, but in fact removes colour over time causing fading. 

Tumble Drying

Tumble drying should also be avoided particularly with knitwear, skirts and any sportswear terms with a transfer print.

Knitwear

We recommend that you wash knitwear inside out, avoid fabric conditioner and do not tumble dry. Please do not iron knitwear as this will make it stretch and go shiny.

Skirts, Kilts & Pinafores

These should be hung to dry immediately after washing and should not be tumble-dried.  Skirts have all been through permanent pleat process which sets the pleats - use of fabric conditioner causes the pleats to become less crisp & the heat from the tumble dryer will also remove pleats over time. 

Sportswear

Our performance sportswear dries very quickly without the need to tumble dry. Please avoid tumble drying or ironing anything with a transfer as this can cause the print to peel. Games socks should be air dried rather than tumble dried.

Velcro

Never wash a garment with its Velcro unfastened. The material is abrasive and can cause damage to other items of clothing.

Vinyl print on stretchy fabrics

Due to the stretch of the fabric of many garments, the vinyl is liable to crack and peel off. We are happy to reapply new print to the garment.

OTHER ITEMS -

Book bags, Games Bags & Holdalls should be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

PILLING AND BOBBLING

Knitted goods are prone to pilling. The main reason is friction or rubbing against another object and this does not necessarily mean that the garment is faulty or of poor quality. Pilling can be caused by any of the following:-

External friction i.e. movement against another fabric or object; Heat generated by the individual when the garment is worn; Washing the garment at the incorrect temperature and/or with other fabrics that will rub against the garment; Tumble drying the garment at too high a temperature, which causes the heat to draw out the fibre.

Some garments appear to have 'fluffed up' after a short period of wear and this is due to surface fibre from the yarn coming to the surface. The yarn in these cases is slightly hairier than usual and the hairs disappear after a period of wear and washing. This is similar to a carpet, where when first laid, the loose fibres come to the surface and are vacuumed away. If the fibres do not wash away, various devices can be used to remove the excess fibre to enhance the look of the garment. Once the fibre is removed the garment is unlikely to pill again. Check that bags and outerwear do not have any exposed Velcro fastenings which may cause damage to garments worn beneath them.

Our advice: we find that the best solution is to turn garments inside out when washing. When pilling occurs it should settle down after washing a number of times; however, if pilling is excessive, please feel free to return to us for inspection.

Whether you’re a beginner, picking up tennis again or looking for an effective frame that’s easy to play with, the Boost is made for you!

With a design inspired by the legendary British Grand Slam, the Wimbledon Boost will enable you to hit smashes, drop shots and aces with pure elegance.

POWER
It would be a shame to give up tennis because you don’t have Rafa’s arm! What you need is a racket that’s easy to grip and will help you produce more power to boost your game. The Boost Drive racket is specially designed with that in mind. A carbon fibre racket that gives the extra power you need.

LIGHTNESS
Heavy wooden rackets belong to the last century. The Boost Drive racquet proudly represents the new generation, with an entirely graphite composition. This technology is used for the best tennis rackets and is very light, without compromising on robustness or life cycle.

MANOEUVRABILITY
Have you picked up tennis (again) because of an incredible one-handed backhand shot you saw on TV? Even if we can't promise that, we guarantee that this racket is extremely manoeuvrable. It was designed to be light as well as balanced to avoid tiring your arm over time and to boost your chances of winning.

Size Guide
The most accurate method of determining the correct grip size is to measure the length from the tip of the ring finger to the middle of the palm of the hand (2nd line). This is your hand measurement. Each measurement corresponds to a matched grip size. The corresponding sizes can be found in the table below:

Grip Size  Hand Size (mm)
1 103-105
2 106-108
3 109-111


If, for example, the ring finger is 107 mm away from the palm, then a grip size 2 will be ideal. If you hesitate between two grip sizes, know that it is better to have a grip that is too small than too large. Indeed, a too small grip can be covered with an overgrip in order to be slightly enlarged.
