    Hi there TT admins

    I'm loving the introduction of the EU store and this section of the forums.

    Just a request to have a section for private sales within EU so people don't miss anything amongst the vast number of US sales in the current FS section.

    Many Thanks

    I'd argue for a UK section. The nasty import taxes they seem to sometimes randomly impose here in the UK on frames coming from overseas, makes overseas transactions (specially from the US) highly unappealing.

    I think those prices in the TW Europe already show VAT included.

    There is no duty tax costums with EU.

    Yes, I agree.

    I would like to see a for sale/eanted section just for people within the EU.

    Great idea but this is not the first time asked...maybe now with TW Europe it can be launched.

    We can do that in the meantime but it would be nice if TW could put a section to make it easier for us.

    I don't need a European classified section, but I know many people here do; so I "vote" for it as well.

    I made a thread about a UK classified section a while back and the TW staff never got back to me, so hopefully this time they will consider adding one in !

    We definately need one. I would rather a UK based one but would settle for an EU one.

    An EU or UK only For Sale section would be a godsend.

    UK only ?

    Why suggesting UK only ? It is Tennis warehouse europe. Shipping within EU is not that expensive and within the EU there are no taxes customs etc.
    I do not see people suggesting France, Spain or German only.

    I Agree, think it a good idea, but not Exclusively a UK based one, You can get variety from others in Europe and maybe things that UK Sellers would not be able to offer, the others from Europe can!

    Let's Add a searchable code to EUUK based Classified posts

    No luck yet getting a dedicated category it seems. :???:

    I'm in Paris and finally just posted in the Classifieds a bunch of Tecnifibre 335 and Dunlop AG300 sticks. Check them out when it gets listed.


    Maybe we should come up with a search engine friendly subject/title heading code to tag our Classified posts as EU/UK based?

    Something searchable (more than 2 characters, no symbols) like EUUK or UKEU?

    So when we post in the Classifieds it would read, eg:

    FS/FT - Such and such racquets - EUUK

    What do you think?

    Sounds good to me.
    it's a shame we can't get our own section, but I guess the prefix EUUK is the next best option.

    Also, if it's ok with the mods - once you post an EUUK ff/ft thread, leave a little note here to let others know (like above)

    Strange, I posted in the classifieds yesterday but it doesn't show up in the most recent batch put up by TW....

    I just reposted with the EUUK code, hope it goes through!

    I'll post one with the EUUK code (KBlade 98 for sale). I hope it turns up on the classifieds section.

    Just a heads up - adding the EUUK code to the post works like a charm - my post went through fine...

    I've only got 2 - a 90 and a 95.
    Yea, sticking with them, I like the stiffness and raw feel. I play a lot better with the vantage and can be more aggressive.
    Also...it may sound strange, but I like the small sweetspot

    This is getting a lot of votes, but unfortunately not enough to make it happen I'm guessing:(

    yea :(
    I guess it's not too bad - if you search EUUK you get the FS thread, provided that the user included EUUK in the title...

    I wonder why the 2 people voted no?

    Edit: 1012007, yea, I spoke to him not long ago and he sounds like he's been very busy, hopefully you'll get through soon.

    Er, we're already semi doing this here: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=287567

    It would also just be nice to hear from more UK-based TT members or Brits abroad.
