Equipment FAQ

Q. If a bat is classed as Pre - Prepared or Knocked in is it ready to play with ?

A. No, this means that they it is part prepared in the factory, including oiling, pressing under a roller and some hand mallet knocking in. We, along with the bat manufacturer still recommend some further knocking in with a bat mallet around the perimeter of the face of the bat and some gentle net practice against an older, softer cricket ball before full match use.

Q. Do I have to order RH (right handed player) and LH (left handed player) batting pads and gloves separately ?

A. No - all batting pads and gloves are sold in pairs. Some are ambidexrous and suit both styles of batting, but just like shoes and socks and gloves, they are always sold in pairs.

Q. How do I tell if I want RH (right handed player) or LH (left handed player) equipment ?

A.You need to know how the player stands when facing the bowler. If their left shoulder is facing the bowler the player is classed as a right hander and vice-versa.
