The Team at Framework Sports have to inform you that it is necessary to take action on pricing to mitigate some of the dramatic cost increases we are experiencing in our business.
Effective immediately, we will impose a 6% price increase on the Slinger Ball Launcher to reflect the rising costs of importing this product in to the UK.
Unfortunately, the ongoing pandemic has created global supply chain issues that have impacted all consumer product categories – including sporting goods. We have experienced rises in costs at unprecedented levels as manufacturing plants attempt to secure raw materials to meet the increase in consumer demand. This is compounded by huge price hikes imposed by shipping liners to transport goods from overseas. This has been caused by lack of space on vessels and a shortage of shipping containers. The sea freight costs associated with container of Slinger Launchers has risen 1076% since last August – an 11 fold increase in less than a year. It is largely the driving up of freight charges that has caused significant cost inflation to our products – particularly the Slinger Bag.
Framework Sports can no longer absorb this level of cost increase. It is simply not sustainable and we need to pass a proportion of these on. Please understand that we are not passing all of the cost increases on.
As a result, the price for the Slinger Grand Slam Launcher increases from £795.00 to £845.00.
That said, based on the hundreds of positive Trustpilot reviews, most of you already know that you get more than a revolutionary tennis ball launcher when you purchase a Slinger Bag through Framework Sports. You get unrivaled hands-on customer service from an experienced team who will always go the extra mile to make sure that you’re not only happy but fully understand all of the benefits of the Slinger Bag.
While Framework Sports has been a mainstay in the racquet sports industry in the UK for 30 years, we are still a small local business trying to provide everyone a first-class shopping experience.
Many thanks for your understanding.
The Team @ Framework Sports.
