Junior Clothing & Equipment Guides
Pads Size Guide (above)
batting/ keeping pads.... the critical measurement here is the approx. distance (unfortunately sizes can vary slightly from make to make) from the middle of the knee cap down to the instep - where the tongue of your shoe would sit. Please note that not all pads are available in every size shown here, but this guide should be a good help.
Gloves Size Guide (above)
batting/ keeping gloves... a bit tricky this one! - but hopefully this will guide you in the right direction. The critical measurement is from the start of the wrist to the tip of your longest finger, in a straight line. This again is only approx., but this guide should again be a good help in steering you in the right direction
Helmet Size Guide (above) (BS7928:2013)
...... a good fitting helmet is worn with the peak protruding horizontally from the line of the eyebrows. It should feel firm but comfortable with no excessive movement in any direction. To measure, run a tape measure around the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows, around the side - just above the ears to the ‘bump’ on the back of the head. Over time the internal padding will mould to the shape of the head.
Clothing Size Guide (above)
shirts/tops and shorts / trousers ...in general cricket clothing, ie shirts and whites tend to be loose fitting for maximum comfort and ease of movement. Whites (trousers) are generally supplied with generous unfinished legs to enable adjustment to the correct fit.
Cricket Bat Size Guide (above)
cricket bats.... choosing the correct size bat is vital for the proper technical development of young cricketers. It is important that the bat is not too long and more importantly not too heavy to hinder correct stroke play and good technique. Junior bats are scaled down in size and weight to meet this important requirement.
