CRICKET BAT SIZE GUIDE

ADULT CRICKET BAT SIZE GUIDE

If you are buying for an adult, your main decision is whether to buy a short handle (SH) or long handle (LH) bat. Short handle is what the majority of players will use, so unless you are very tall get yourself a short handle bat.

JUNIOR CRICKET BAT SIZE GUIDE

Buying for a junior is a touch more difficult, as there are many size bats depending on the height of the child. It is very important to get the right size bat, so as tempting as it is to get something to ‘grow into’, get the right size bat or the child will struggle to use it properly. If you get a bat too big or heavy, then they will find it very hard to play correct shots and so will not score many runs.

Only ever select a cricket bat that that you can comfortably hold at arms length horizontally in front of you
