About Our Long Handle Bat
Find the gaps, even if that is through the slips. The Village Cricket Bat has been built to last and keep hitting those boundaries in picturesque village cricket grounds for years to come. It really is the perfect bat for village cricketers.
We opted out of the fancy branding and we don’t make you choose between multiple different weights or shapes. It’s a 2lb 9oz cricket bat that if you middle it, it flies. We have even pre-knocked it in for you so you don’t need to worry (or pay more) for that.
Created by village cricketers to get more people playing the sport, it will save you money too, so you can have a beer on us!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to knock it in?
Not at all. We’ve done it for you, don’t spend hours of your life annoying everyone banging your bat with a mallet to knock it in. Or worse, pay over the odds for other brands to do it for you.
Where is the bat made?
All of our bats are created India. Made from the Salix Alba willow grown in the Kashmir region of India. Similar to that of what Sachin Tendulkar used during his early career.
How is the bat so affordable?
There are a few ways we are able to keep the price down for you:
- The bat is sourced directly from the manufacturer, cutting out any middlemen
- In each size, we only offer 1 design, style and weight
- Keeping it simple,
we don’t sponsor professional players adding unnecessary costs
What does ready to play mean?
Ready to play means that our bats are pre-knocked in at factory by a machine. So your new bat is essentially ready to take straight into action without hours of knocking in using a mallet. However. we do still advise easing into using it starting with softer balls from slower bowlers in the nets.
What grade of willow is the bat?
All of our bats are made from grade G1+ Kashmir Willow. We spent two years testing different types of willow and found this perfect for village cricket. We wrote up our experiences during our research if you wanted to learn more.
One Year Warranty
All our products come with a full year’s warranty, so if anything is to happen to your cricket bat then we will replace it free of charge.
All we ask is that you don’t smash it against a wall after 364 days.
