Absolutely great build quality and service. I'm returning to the sport after 24yrs away and I always used bats from a small bat company as a junior and happy to now still support a small business. The bay plays beautifully and when it comes off the middle the bowl needs a taxi fare to retrieve the ball.

Love my Village Cricket short handle bat. Managed to get a good few runs in her last season. Best of 97 (caught out by my team mate sub fielding) Makes a lovely sound off the middle. Picks up very comfortably and is great value. Looking forward to 2022 and hopefully going 3 better. Great customer service and love the company’s philosophy. Keep up the good work.

First outing for the new pads. Light, comfortable and offer good protection. Excellent value for money and very smart looking too. Delivery was fast and efficient. Top work again team, just waiting for the gloves to match now. (And a red inker to start the season too!)

Had my new batting pads for a couple of weeks now and delighted. Well made and lightweight. Plenty of protection and robust construction. Small tabs on the ends of the straps make them nice and easy to feed through and secure. Very comfortable to run in so plenty of quick singles this season ahead.

Very good quality, light weight, comfortable, men's batting pads. Based on the bat I purchased which represented excellent quality for a sensible price I felt compelled to purchase the batting pads and was not disappointed.

This bat is a thing of beauty. It is perfectly weighted with an inviting grip. Most importantly, it sounds so so nice. The sound of a middled cricket ball will soundtrack your daydreams for weeks. It will bring approving nods from even the most experienced teammate. It is everything I wanted in a bat and so much more. It can see it being a loyal companion for years to come.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
For the first time in 20 years, I have had buy a new cricket bat and I was shocked at how expensive they are. After a quick internet search , I came across the Village Cricket Bat Co. and was impressed by their ethos and attitude to the game. Ordering the bat was a breeze with personalised customer service. When the bat arrived, I was impressed by the feel and balance of it, and in the first net session, any middled shots flew. I am looking forward to seeing if it will improve my batting average, but I think that the quality of this bat exceeds my skill level!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

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!

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!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Village Cricket Co long handled bat (christened 'Vic') goes like a dream. His first outing with me ended in a swift 8 (2). Next came a more considered 37 (61) to grind out a draw. Vic's good in defence & attack, a nice light pick-up & sweet middle. Looks good too. In fact, I think this Village Cricket Co bat, whilst considerably cheaper than all of my previous bats, is by far the best I've used. Unfortunately my son thinks so too & has stolen it!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I've just started playing cricket again and wanted to buy a decent bat, without it costing a fortune. The Village Cricket Co bat stood out thanks to its story and the positive reviews. I decided to give it a try and do not regret it at all. The bat looks great and, despite it feeling a bit heavier than I would like ideally, it does have a good pickup and an excellent middle (which I don't find often enough!). Overall, really impressed with the quality, particularly given the price. My sons also bought me the matching batting pads and gloves for Father's Day and I'm very happy with those too. Highly recommend giving Village Cricket Co a try.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Difficult when you use a product without getting the feel of it first in the nets. On Saturday I had a battism of fire, so to speak. But I got used to it very quickly. Pick up is fantastic unlike my older, heavy bat. Light and balanced, it gets you into position with ease. When the ball hits the middle, you don't even know you've hit it. Honestly, it goes like s**t off a stick. Very nice piece of wood indeed. One downside - it seemed to 'dent' a little more than I expected. Maybe I'm just not used to clean and smooth shiny new bats, having had my other for 25+ years. Overall, a great purchase and recommended to others already. Thanks guys.

I bought the plastic cricket set to use on family holidays but also to muck about with in the garden with my mates. As ever things get overly competitive and it provided a great afternoon of entertaining garden cricket. The kit all feels well made and I'm sure I'll be having plenty of laughs with it for years to come.

I used the pads in a match and can confirm that neither me nor my mate who borrowed them were out LBW! They have a good knee plastic cup and are very sturdy. When my 10 year old punched them they had no give so will protect my legs well when a ball hits them!

Scored a century in my first game with this bat. Good bat, great value! Not a huge cricket fan so didn't want/know how to knock the bat in so huge benefit that it's ready to play. Recommend it to anyone I know looking for a bat that isn't prepared to pay hundreds.

The quality of the bat you are getting for price is amazing. Has a great light pickup and the middle really pings with a good sound. Also a plus that's it essentially ready to go straight away.
Pads look great and very comfortable. Bats also felt great but I didn’t get to use as was next man in 🙂

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I bought my new bat over the winter so have had to wait to wield it in anger until winter nets began. Firstly, the ordering and delivery process was smooth and all proceeded in good time. The handwritten note that came with the bat was a lovely touch Presentation and the look and feel of the bat are great, with the bat cover a nice and unexpected extra touch. Nice feel (I need to add another bat rubber) but pickup and balance are good. I've always used a light bat so 2lb 9oz is about right for me. Found the middle a couple of times and it definitely stayed hit (I even held the pose for the camera for a couple of nice cover drives). Great value for money from my experience so far. Certainly better than the Kookaburra it replaces that cost similar money.

My son plays junior cricket in the Lancashire league and is very pleased with his new bat. It looks really well finished and is a better quality bat than others he has used - he's well impressed the ping off the middle! Customer care has been very good too.

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.

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.

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!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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!

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.
