All top coaches will agree that having the correct size equipment is crucial especially for junior players.

Bat Sizing (Using Players Height):


Full Size /Short Handle - 1.75m & over

Small Adult/Academy - 1.68m - 1.75m

Harrow - 1.63m - 1.68m

6 - 1.57m - 1.63m

5 - 1.50m - 1.57m

4 - 1.44m - 1.5m

3 - 1.37m - 1.44m

1 - 1.22m - 1.29m

0 - 1.10m - 1.22m

00 - Up to 1.10m

Too often junior players use bats that are too big for them. Bats that are too long prevent the bat being picked up correctly as the top of the handle gets in the way.

Gloves Sizing:


6-8 Years - XS Junior

8-10 Years - Small Junior

10-12 Years - Junior

12-14 Years - Youths

15 Years and Above - Medium or Adult

It is important that gloves have a nice snug fit. If they are too loose the palm will bunch up and cause discomfort and they will wear out prematurely. With gloves it is acceptable to allow up to 10mm (1cm) of extra room at the end of the fingers.

Pads Sizing:


Using Players Height - 

120-135cm - XS Junior

130-145cm - Small Junior

140-155cm - Junior

150-165cm - Youths

170cm + - Medium or Adult

Pads are probably the most difficult to fit correctly. There is only limited room for error, and pads need to be fitted correctly to allow for a good amount of movement - There's nothing worse than being caught short on a quick single!! Ideally your knee should be centered in the knee roll and the "top hat" should not get in the way when playing your shots - particularly front foot shots.

Helmet Sizing:

With so many different brands of helmets available, it is important to check the circumference measurements within the different brand and helmets styles. To select the correct size, measure the circumference around the cap line (where a cap would sit). Most of our listed helmets will have a cm measurement guide to follow.
