Supporters Products

Perhaps the easiest gift for the cricket fan. This season we’re stocking the new range of Australian Cricket Supporters products from Asics. Sizing is very simple and all necessary measurements you need to find a perfect fit can be found in the product descriptions. Take a look at our supporters range here.


Cricket Bat Covers

A cricket bat cover is often overlooked when cricketers purchase a cricket bat and make for a very useful gift. Bat covers are perfect for junior cricketers who could use a hand carrying their equipment, as in some cases their gear is bigger than they are! You can take a look at our range of cricket bat covers here.


Cricket Bags

Thankfully bags are pretty simple as all bag measurements are displayed in the product descriptions.

In our experience we’ve found that the minimum size for a senior cricketers gear bag is about 107L. If you’re shopping for a junior cricketer, keep the bag under 107L to ensure it’s lightweight and easy for them to carry or wheel.

Cricket Bats

Before we get too far into this, you need to know that Cricket Bats come in two different types of wood. 

      • English Willow – These are the vast majority of our cricket bats, suitable for hitting leather balls and for cricketers above 12 years of age
      • Kashmir Willow - A more economic option at approximately $80 and under, these bats are great for backyard cricketers or kids not yet using a leather cricket ball

A correct size is the most important aspect of purchasing a cricket bat. Take a look at the link below to find the correct size.

Cricket bats are a uniquely personal item, we recommend consulting with the future user on any possible cricket bat purchase for Christmas. Once you have a good idea of what you are looking for, follow the links below to take a look at our range

These can be very simple, provided that you have the players head measurement. All of our helmets are sized by head circumference (forehead) and most are designed so they can accommodate a variety of head shapes.

Generally the higher priced helmets are lighter.

All our helmets meet the Australian and New Zealand protection standards.

Spikes are designed for cricketers who play in turf pitches, but all can be modified so they are appropriate on synthetic (or carpet) pitches

Rubbers are designed for cricketers who play only on concrete and synthetic pitches. These shoes are much more common with junior cricketers

The vast majority of cricket footwear is based of running shoes. In the big brands like, Asics, adidas and New Balance you can simply purchase the same size cricket shoes as your runners.
