“Fast delivery.”

Written on: 09/06/2011 by LinaL (6 reviews written)

delivery was free and fast. The items was as described and much cheaper than other on-line stores/sports stores and they even sent a free gift out with my order. I found the web site easy to use and I would be happy to use them again in the future when needed… Read Full Review

“Good value and fast delivery”

Written on: 07/06/2011

Purchased a Wilson Blade BLX lite tennis raquet on their website Sportsdirect.com. After reading some bad reviews about customer service I was rather nervous about putting an order in. But it was the cheapest price I could find for this raquet. I put in the order before 12 (noon) on a monday and had the received the goods by Tuesday (4pm). They also allowed the option of a different delievery address to my billing address which was also great. I give them 5 stars for great price on… Read Full Review

“They sent the wrong items”

Written on: 07/06/2011

Its a lottery if you actually get your online order never mind about it being late! I ordered 8 football tops for a football tournament and they sent jeans. They are impossible to get hold of by phone and only respond to emails on a first come first serve basis. I still have't heard from then a week later after sending my items back and will be getting a refund as there customer service is terrible. I have emailed and rang but cannot get through to the customer service. Tried going into a… Read Full Review

“Problems buying from another country”

Written on: 03/06/2011 by djonatanb (1 review written)

I was visiting UK when I saw lilly whites, I bought a lot of stuff ther and it was a very good value. When I came back to Brazil I searched for their webstore and noticed that they could send it to me for a certain amount of pounds, I was very happy... But when I was picking my items and tried to proceed to checkout the webstore dropped me out. They apparently filtered my IP number and didn't alow me to enter my credit card informations. I was very disappoited because the webstore system told… Read Full Review

“Poor desptach / communication process”

Written on: 26/05/2011

I ordered some gloves and an item of boys clothing. I was advised that the clothing item was despatched at 4pm the same day, valued at £3.00 and the postage was charged at £3.99. This was fine until I received an email sent at 4 am the next day saying the gloves were out of stock and the order had been cancelled. I only actually wanted the gloves and the clothing item was just an add on given that I was already paying the postage for the gloves. Basically I would have like the chance to… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2011

I had been looking for a cheap tennis racket to get myself into tennis and found a Slazenger one on promotion on the Sports Direct website reduced from £25 to £5! I ordered two and I am really impressed with the product.

The one issue I had was with the delivery of the item. Although I entered my work address in the delivery field, once I placed my order, shortly afterwards I received a confirmation email giving my home address as both the invoice AND the delivery address. I emailed them to… Read Full Review

Ordered 3 cheap golf woods at 12 noon, and turned up about 12 noon the next day with the £5.99 next day delivery option. Much cheaper than anywhere else. Was worried after reading the other reviews on here, but it worked out really well for me… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2011

Do NOT shop online with Sports Direct. Only shop in store when you can keep your eye on them and not get ripped off. You cannot contact someone if you have any problems whatsoever which is not a nice feeling. I e from them for convenience and paid £5.99 for next day delivery. That was days ago and the delivery is sitting in Redhill now after being 3 days late and trying to deliver to my office address at 9pm (???) if they had given me what I paid for and delivered my item in the 24 hour time… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2011

Do not ever buy anything from them!!! They are money grabbing, time wasting, lying, no-good, jobs worth, monkeys in the warehouse, couldn't give a rats ass, bunch of idiots!!! As you can see from the above, after taking my money, sending the wrong items, still not sent the right ones, still waiting for refund and still waiting for someone to call me they are slightly infuriating me now. Speak to Sue in Customer Service management. She will promise loads of things but never do any of them. I… Read Full Review

“Went to the Sports Direct in Braehead shopping centre...”

Written on: 04/05/2011 by Jenezzy (5 reviews written)

Went to the Sports Direct in Braehead shopping centre in Paisley. Shop assistant was very dismissive and disinterested. He openly expressed this in front of customers both in what he said (and tone of voice) and behaviour (e.g. throwing down shoes in boredom). Staff at tills were under-trained and other staff on the floor were too busy chatting to each other to help customers. The floor layout in general is quite shabby - cramped and dull… Read Full Review

“Least customer-focussed company I've ever dealt with. ”

Written on: 20/04/2011

Least customer-focussed company I've ever dealt with.
I only ordered the shoes online as the shop refused to order them in my size saying that they 'stocked whatever was sent through'.

Arrived on time but were too big so tried returning them to the shop - shop refused to take them and I was forced to pay to return them, despite shop manager advising me that web returns were freepost.

I've also bought 'karrimor' branded items from the shop which are cheap tat with the karrimor logo embroidered… Read Full Review

DO NOT BUY!!! Cancelled things without telling me and shipping rates remain the same. It would have been cheaper going to a local shop and buy everything from there instead of buying from sportsdirect. I would never buy again… Read Full Review

I ordered four golf polo's, a pair of ladies walking trousers and to get free delivery ordered some tee's on the evening of 29/03, they arrived today 31/03 which is very good by online standards across the board.

Opened everything up and it seemed in order.. Wait there a second whats that on one of the polos? On the arm it had clicks on, I looked again and the sleeve was dirty (to me looked like suncream stain), on further inspection the whole polo was shop dirty and there was a huge yellow… Read Full Review
