    We now require using the form provided on the sticky at the top of the FS/T Forum for easy moderation as well as making sure all the information is provided for both sellers and buyers.

    All For Sale/Trade classified ads will be filtered. This means your post will not show up immediately, but will be held up by our moderator for approval and can take up to 24 hours during the business week. Ads are not moderated over the weekend and any ads submitted on the weekend will show up on Monday or Tuesday. Please do not post your ad multiple times, as this will only delay your ad further. Also, no new products, dealers or links to E-Bay auctions or Craigslist ads are allowed. The classified section is here so Talk Tennis members can sell and trade used personal equipment only. Posts by dealers, clubs and pros for used demo stock, old stock or overstocked items will not be approved.

    Unless you are making a change to your ad, such as lowering the price of items, we do not allow bumps or "still available" posts to bring a post back to the top of the forum.

    Please clearly define the age and condition of each item in a classified ad. Condition should be rated on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being new. Having an "out of 10" rating is mandatory, as ads without this rating will be automatically hard deleted. Posts identifying a product's condition from 9.6 - 10.0 will be refused, as we'll assume this means new. Any ads rated between a 9.0-9.5 will require additional information including both specific amount of time used and cosmetic blemishes. Phrases such as "like new," "barely used," "excellent/pristine condition" or "played with for a couple minutes" will not be acceptable as extra description and subject to deletion. If the age and condition of each item is not listed we will assume it is new and the entire post will be deleted. If selling multiple items and one violates a policy, the entire post will be deleted. Ads that have the following will also be deleted: racquets with plastic on the handle, items that have been never worn/used, used less than 30 minutes and NOS (new old stock),

    Please note that pro stock racquets, new or used, are not eligible for sale on Talk Tennis. Pre-production racquets will also not be allowed (example- blacked out or wrong cosmetic). Additionally, as a courtesy to our vendors providing playtesting racquets, we will not allow the sale of playtesting racquets. Lastly, there is no selling of tickets or taped matches.

    We reserve the right to refuse any ad. If you have any questions or concerns, please email and we will be happy to take a look at your ad and answer any questions you may have.

    Thanks for your cooperation.
