CRICKET BAT SIZE GUIDE
When selecting a cricket bat, choosing the correct size isfont-weight: normal very important. It is also very important to remember that a cricket bat is not like a piece of clothing...."that you can grow into over time".
Buying a bat that is too big for you, will affect the way in which you play and will hinder you performance and ultimately your enjoyment of the game.
Please select a size that is right for you now, this will help ensure that you get good use out of it and score lots of runs with it.
The following table outlines the approximate sizes of each bat. All cricket coaches would agree that a bat which is too big for a player does limit their ability to successfully play a wide range of shots.The size suited to an individual is mainly determined by height, weight and pick-up.
BATTING PADS SIZE GUIDE
The measurement to take here is from the centre of the knee cap, to the top of the foot (where the tongue of your shoe would fit). Sizes can vary slightly from one manufacturer to another, but this guide should give you a good idea.
BATTING/WICKET KEEPING GLOVES SIZE GUIDE
The measurement to take here is from the start of the wrist to the tip of your middle finger (the longest one) in a straight line. Gloves can also vary slightly from one manufacturer to another, but this guide should help.
HOCKEY SIZE GUIDE
The length of your field hockey stick is very important. We have listed a few methods for choosing a hockey stick length below.
- To measure a child (5 ft 2” or under) hold the hockey stick at their side and it should be just under their hip or belly button.
- If you cannot decide between two lengths, you should consider your child’s position. On defence, a longer stick is useful to provide a longer reach and to allow the player to drive the ball further. On the other hand, a shorter stick improves a player’s stick handling skills on offense.
- If you are 5’10” you don’t have to use a 37.5″ stick, it is completely a matter of personal choice and equally someone under 5’10” may prefer a slightly longer Hockey stick and opt for the 37.5″, in our experience the majority of Hockey players chose a 36.5″ Hockey Stick. The best advice we can offer is to come in and try out a few Hockey sticks so that you choose the stick that is most suitable for your position and style of play.
