About Our Cricket 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 (or not so pretty) 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, shapes or styles. It’s a 2lb 9oz cricket bat that if you middle it, it flies. The low-middle bat, suitable for the low bouncing UK wickets comes ready to play.

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!

Big Hitter

I have used my VC bat for two seasons now and let me tell you, it can hit boundaries with ease. The weight is perfect for me and allows me to play classic or big (big is my style) shots.
I am looking forward to a 3rd season hopefully on the runs. Well done VC on a great product.

Great bat and a great company

I scored my maiden half-century with this bat thanks to the low middle and ease with which it struck the ball - invaluable at a village cricket level. Freddie and the team are also excellent when it comes to customer service so you couldn't ask for a better company to buy a bat from.

great bat

I was very excited when a parcel turned up at my door with the my new Village Cricket Co. bat inside, I was even more excited that it arrived in time for a twenty20 game that night. I reached unprecedented levels of excitement when the first two balls I faced with it were both hit to the boundary for a couple of fours!

A great looking bit of kit that's had more comments (positive) from team mates and opposition players than my other (much more expensive) bat.

Great bit of kit that can even make me look good!


Prefer something a bit heavier myself but for what it is, basically perfect. Not sure you could do better for the price.

Great pickup, solid bat!

Used my bat several times throughout this season and the quality is evident. Flies off the middle! Cracking purchase, even for a tailender like myself!

Frequently Asked Questions

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.


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.


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

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.

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.
