Bat Size Guide
cricket bats....cricketers and all top coaches agree with suppliers and manufacturers that choosing the correct size bat is vital for the proper technical development of young cricketers. It is important that the bat is not too long and more importantly not too heavy to hinder correct stroke play and good technique. Junior bats are scaled down in size and weight to meet this important requirement.

Junior Bat Weights
Approx weights of junior bats - this can depend on whether the bat is English or Kashmir Willow. Kashmir Willow bats tend to be at the heavier end of the scales set out below and are approximate average weights per size (in lbs and oz) across all brands of bats that we stock.

 Pads Size Guide

batting/ keeping pads.... the critical measurement here is the approx distance ( unfortunately sizes can vary slightly from make to make) from the middle of the knee cap down to the instep - where the tongue of your shoe would sit. Please note that not all pads are available in every size shown here, but this guide should be a good help.

Gloves Size Guide
batting/ keeping gloves.. a bit tricky this one! - but hopefully this will guide you in the right direction. It has been put together with the help of G&M and Slazenger. The critical measurement is from the start of the wrist to the tip of your longest finger, in a straight line. This again is only approx, but this guide should again be a good help in steering you in the right direction.

Helmet Size Guide
...... a good fitting helmet is worn with the peak protruding horizontally from the line of the eyebrows. It should feel firm but comfortable with no excessive movement in any direction. To measure, run a tape measure around the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows, around the side - just above the ears to the ‘bump’ on the back of the head. Over time the internal padding will mould to the shape of the head.

Shoe Size Guide
shoe size converter..... all of our shoe sizes in our online store are quoted in US sizes. Over the last few years there has been a great improvement made by all manufactures in standardising sizes alongside normal shoe sizes. So you should feel comfortable in making the correct choice, based on your ‘normal' shoe size... but don’t forget to allow for a thicker sock !. Any shoes which we feel are sized small or large versus the industry norm are noted on their relevant catalogue page.
