Not many sports men and women are as picky about their kit and equipment as cricketers are. Whether it’s bats, gloves, pads or the cricket bag itself, cricket players will take care to choose exactly the correct item for that suits both their physical size and style of play. If you’re on the lookout for junior cricket equipment in Malvern, then here are a few essentials you’ll need to look for:
All of the junior cricket helmets we have in stock at Kidz & Kitz have passed the required safety tests, so choosing a helmet really comes down to comfort and budget. Most the helmets available in our Malvern store have some adjustments to make them more comfortable. By adjusting the helmet settings, the grille can also be positioned to stop a cricket ball passing under the visor whilst still providing excellent visibility.
The optimal way to choose your cricket pad size is to make sure your knee is lined up right in the middle of the knee roll and then double check that the top of the pads are not obstructing your hands when you’re in your batting stance.
Remember, gloves come in both left and right handed pairs and a good fit is vital to your comfort and performance. The gloves should feel reasonably tight, because the looser the fit the less effective the protection is!
