BAT REPAIRS

Cricket bats are crafted from English willow & whilst it's a hardwood, it is very soft by nature. At some stage of each cricket bat's life, it will get damaged. The repeated impact from cricket balls, going in and out of a cricket bag, getting hot and cold depending on how it is stored and general wear and tear. All of these things take their toll on cricket bats.

Because of our experience making cricket bats, we know precisely how they should work and when they get damaged, we are well equipped to make the necessary repairs needed to get it back to making runs.

Below is a list of repair services we offer. If you are unsure on the repair needed, please fill out the below form, and we'll come back to you to confirm which repair is right for you.

We also have a bundle discount depending how many repairs you put together. 2 repairs = 10% off, 3 repairs = 20% off, 4 or more repairs = 30% off.
