I wish there weren't but I think there are a lot of stringers wondering what's wrong with that. My guess is if you buy tubing you won't get reimbursed. I think the store would rather have them buy a new racket that spend time fixing an old one.
EDIT: I hate to say it but if the racket is all beat up to begin with and the bumper strip is torn to peaches think of what could happen. A junior brings in a racket you replace the grip, grommets, and strings and the junior goes on his way. Two days later the racket cracks and someone wants their money back.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
