Buying New Equipment

Of Course the best way to buy new equipment by trying out first, but living in Inverness can make that difficult and often buying on line is the only option.

If possible, speak to someone at the Club first. We may have things you can try on or test out first.

Failing that, we’ve put some sizing guides here for your use.

CRICKET BAT SIZE GUIDE

Choosing the correct size bat is vital for the proper technical development of young cricketers. It is important that the bat is not too long and more importantly not too heavy to hinder correct stroke play and good technique. Junior bats are scaled down in size and weight to meet this important requirement. Below is an accurate guide to help you choose an accurate size for a junior cricketer.
