About The 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 flys. 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 as well as saving you money. Have a beer on us!

Word on the square

See what village cricketers are saying about our bats.

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

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!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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 balanced pickup. 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. Overall a very nice bat, especially considering it's price!

To find a bat that is actually fit for purpose at this price is near on impossible. What these guys are doing is incredible and I applaud them for it. Gutted I didn't come up with the idea. As far as the bat goes I have to say I'm so impressed, I have bought bats for nearly double the cost of this one that should be reserved for use with a tennis ball in the back garden. Keep doing what you're doing and right here you've got a happy customer who will come back time and time again!

So far so great. Took delivery yesterday and bat looks and feels great. Appreciate the fantastic customer service and can't wait to get going out in the middle. Bring on the start of the season...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wow what a bat! It took a while to adjust to the weight more centred toward the bottom, the handle felt small in the hand but a 2nd grip soon corrected that. The bat has a great middle and really pings. You get all this for under £100, I definitely recommend this bat!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Lovely looking bat with a good pickup and when I've got near middle the ping was nice, handle/grip for me is a little on the thin side but I normally put extra grips on anyways all in all you won't find a better bat for the money. Thanks Freddie and the team!

What a stunning Bat Village Cricket Co have produced. Felt like a ‘see how it goes’ moment when ordering, rather than being stuck to the established brands…. But from the first warm up in the nets to my first cover drive for 4, the bat is a delight. Fantastic middle rockets the ball with good balance for technical shots, drives and the big swing! Great service and price point for regular or occasional batsman, I wasn’t disappointed. Just ordered a bat for my son too…. My daughter will want one too! Thanks to Freddie and George for starting a great company.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It is great, amazing. Had few shots just flying off the bat, cleared boundary few times with minimal effort. Looks solid and feels great. Good pick-up and middle, pings well. Pretty pleased. I love it, recommended to few of my friends as well.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Picked up the bat at the start of the season and its been quality, great bit of kit. I loved the no fuss with knocking in and getting to support a couple of guys who genuinely care about their bat and village cricket.
Milo T
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The bat arrived right on time and in perfect condition. The added cover and hand written note was a lovely touch. I've since had it out in the nets and absolutely loved it. I've decorated it with a few edges but that's my problem, not the bat's! Thanks again for the great service from start to finish and all the best for the future.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Love the bat! It's got a lovely, satisfying ping to it. The balance is great too, with the weight centred around the lower/middle section, which is perfect for the conditions I play in where the ball never gets up too much. Great value for money!
Sarathy K
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I've used the bat a couple of times and have found it to be really nice, the weight is just right for me, and it has a lovely sweet spot. Both times when I have batted, I've been bringing up the rear, finding myself batting for a lot of overs to get us over the line. The fact that it's knocked in is fantastic, and I believe that better players than me would probably like it. I think that this would be perfect for anyone, and have recommended it to all my team mates.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The pick-up and balance of the bat is absolutely fine. It has a nice profile that gives a large hitting area, and it's more than capable of clearing the boundary. Nice thick toe area without making it feel bottom heavy. Its a solid bat that I expect will last for many seasons. Good value for money imho.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The bat looks and feels great. Slightly heavier than my previous bat but I’ll soon get used to that. Only used it once and I was bowled for 8! Lovely sweet spot when I managed to time into correct!
Jordan D
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I have used this bat in my last 6 matches. In the first match, I scored 51, and in another match, I scored 35 then 25 in the next one. Three of them I scored only less than 5. I am impressed with this bat and the ball flies like a bullet if it gets connected.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I loved the honesty and no frills approach of the Village Cricket Co. The bat itself is excellent value for money and looks smart. The ball really pings off the middle and the pickup is nice and balanced. It is also a nice touch to get a bat cover included.
Austin
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The bat is cracking. Pickup of the bat is great for me. With a low to centre middle. Perfect for Scottish wickets. Overall I really like my new bat and would reccomend getting this bat. Thanks so much village cricket for creating an affordable and stylish bat.

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.
