Whether your kid is just starting out or making roads at their local village club our junior cricket bat is ideal and will have them smashing boundaries in no time – without the usual price tag.

About The Bat

At Village Cricket Co. our mission is to make cricket more accessible and bring enjoyment to more kids to get to take up the sport and love it like we did when we were younger.

We opt out of fancy branding, sponsoring players or creating multiple versions of the same bat to keep our costs down so we can pass them on to you.

Our junior cricket bats have been designed to help kids get their own bat and start hitting boundaries in no time. It comes ready to play (no knocking in required) so you don’t need to worry (or pay more) for that.

Created by village cricketers to get more people playing the sport as well as saving you money.

Size Guide

When selecting a cricket bat, it’s crucial that you pick one that is the correct size for the player. If it’s too small or too big, batting will be uncomfortable and performance will be compromised.

Bat size is based on the height of the player. Take a look at our handy Size Guide to see which bat size you should choose.

I must say that I was just blown away by the true craftsmanship and quality of the bat. It is tailor made for village cricket and allows club cricketers like me to feel so much more comfortable when going into bat. I especially like the bottom heavy weight which allows for expansive stroke play. Overall this is an amazing product and I would highly recommend!

Excellent pickup, very well balanced. Lower middle which is great for the pitches we have to play on. The middle pings!!

Bat looked good - logo not over fussy, and felt comfortable. Lighter than it looked with a balanced pick up. Most of the weight quite low so satisfying ping when you find the middle. Bat handle felt slightly thin but you'd get used to it or add a second grip. A good priced bat for the village batter.

A bat well suited to those who enjoy a slightly heavier pickup, with the weight more centered towards the bottom. The bat has a very nice middle and a good amount of forgiveness at the toe and splice, with the weight helping the ball stay hit. The graining across the face is fine with no knotting or other defects to note, and the bowing is also fine although not extremely curved. Overall a very nice bat, especially considering it's price!

Word on the square

See what village cricketers are saying about our bats.

My daughter is absolutely loving swinging the bat around the garden. It’s perfect, thank you so much.

Thanks Village Cricket Co. for giving my 14 year old son the confidence that he can ‘clump’ it! There’s nothing worse than a branded ‘plank’ which means you can’t get it off the square; with a Village Junior Bat he’s in business.

I bought one for my son after he loved watching The Hundred. Was worried a wooden bat might be a bit too heavy for him but this one seems great.

My son absolutely loves his first bat! We’ve been out in the garden almost every day since it arrived. Thank you so much Freddie & George!

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.

360 Day Guarantee

Paying under £100 for a cricket bat would make anyone worry whether it will last. We completely appreciate that so we will replace any broken back from a match or practice within 360 days of purchase.

All we ask is that you don’t smash it against a wall after 359 days.
