About Our Junior Cricket Bats

At Village Cricket Co. our mission is to make cricket more accessible and bring enjoyment to more kids to get them 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!

Grandson very pleased!

Cricket bat arrived in good time, love the carry bag. My grandson was thrilled to receive this for Christmas, he said it felt like a real cricket bat as had only a plastic one before. Also good communication with the Village Cricket Co.


Absolutely fantastic customer service, clearly a very knowledgeable and passionate business. we couldn't be happier with our new cricket bat, it's superb quality and very reasonably priced. we will definitely be returning customers 😁 thank you!


Bought for my youngest son, Henry. Now able to move the bat faster, lovely sweet spot and great quality. He's got so much more confidence. He's proud to be hefting something a little different, too.
PS - don't be tempted to size up...


Lovely little cricket bat 12 year old. Great weight and the ball pings off the middle. Overall very good bat for the price.


Absolutely amazing bat. My 5 year old totally loved it and wore out his grandparents playing all day.
Top quality product for a hard ball bat and he was delighted to earn some cherries! Fabulous purchase!

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 years 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.
