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!

Even better than expected

Beautiful sound, light pickup, played three innings so far with it, 93 runs out twice which is much better than my usual standard.

Neil Ward
New kit debut

Gave my new kit it's first run out. The bat is really comfortable and even scored some runs with it. The pads and gloves are also top notch, as is the service from Village Cricket Co.

Stephen Hawksworth
Amazing value for money

Still can't quite believe that this bat is under £100. Used it for the first time on Saturday and scored 52 (first 50 of the season). What these guys are doing to support the club cricketer is amazing and everyone should get behind them. I'm now using the full kit bat, pads and gloves every week. Great pick up, excellent middle as it really flies. Thanks guys


My first bat was a disappointment so looking around for a new one was going to be difficult. Once I found Village cricket co I just knew that they were the one. The bat arrived promptly on a Friday ready for the weekend. Being in my first season I didn’t know what to look for on a bat but all of my team were very positive about the bat and scored my highest score with it and can’t wait to use it again.

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.
