If you’ve played a lot of cricket, you’ve no doubt faced down some stinging bowls! Cricket may technically be a no contact sport, but when a ball is thrown at you at 80 miles an hour, you’re going to want to be wearing some good protection.
There are some things you absolutely do not want to play cricket without, and one of those is cricket pads. Choosing to invest in good quality protection is going to help you to stay safe and not get hurt. Let’s face it: if you get an injury, that means less time playing cricket, and nobody wants that!
So what protection is best for you? Luckily, we offer a wide range of protective equipment and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. We have a history of helping get kids into sport, and we make sure to supply batting pads in a range of different sizes for both kids and adults.
All our equipment comes from brands that we have tried and tested ourselves. We make sure that we trust a brand before selling their products, and as such only supply the brands that we think are the best and most reputable, including Gray-Nicolls, Gunn & Moore and Kookaburra, as well as our own Big 5 range of batting pads for players of all types.
