THE WEIGHT OF A CRICKET BAT
Cricket bat making is a very old tradition and pounds and ounces are used to measure bats. At Cooper Cricket, we honour this tradition and use these measurements to weight our cricket bats.
Bats are weighted before the binding, grip and stickers go on.
Most commonly, cricket bat weights are between:
- Male adults 2.5lbs – 3lbs
- Female adults 2.2lbs – 2.6lbs
- Male youth 2.1lbs – 2.4lbs
- Female youth 1.15lbs – 2.2lbs
- Kids 1.10lbs – 1.4lbs
Although we have made bats heavier than 3lbs – these don’t get asked for very often!
Binding, grip and stickers add on a few ounces – so keep this in mind when thinking about cricket bats.
