Bat Size Guides

Youth

Young players (children or teenagers in general), on average, grow at about 2.5 inches (6 to 7 centimetres) each year.

We would recommend that at the start of each season they check that their existing bat is the right size for them and/or they secure a new bat for the upcoming season to ensure they play to their optimum potential (refer to chart below). We would also highly recommend that the bat selected is also of the correct weight, not too heavy and not too light. Put simply a bat that is too heavy means they will be late onto the ball, whereas too light and they will be too early. Youth bats also differ from senior or adult bats. Youth bats use a different range of English Willow and Kashmir Willow, aimed to hit competitive prices in the market while they grow into the game.

Senior or Adults

We offer a selection of bat heights for senior players who range in height 5’7” upwards and we would recommend securing the right size bat with the correct weight.

Please note that the above content is a guide only, we always recommend trying products on for fit and comfort prior to purchase.

Gloves Size Guides

The level of cricket being played will assist in choosing the right pair of batting gloves offering the correct level of protection, the better the standard the higher the protection required.
If either a senior or youth player, ensure the gloves fit comfortably and when holding a bat that the fingers only touch the end of the gloves slightly. Youth players who grow steadily each year will need to check their gloves at the start of each season to ensure they are correctly protected.

Note: measure from the wrist to the middle finger.

Pads Size Guides

The level of cricket being played will assist in choosing the right pair of batting pads offering the correct level of protection, and could also make the difference between picking up a quick single and being run out. For the most comfortable fit and the best protection, the knee should sit directly behind the top knee bar and base should rest on the top of your shoe. Straps should be fed through the plastic buckles and buckles should be on the outside leg.
Youth players who grow steadily each year are recommended to check their pads at the start of each season to ensure they are protected correctly.

Helmet Size Guides

Fully compliant to Australian Protective Standards and certified to BS7928:2013, Kookaburra helmets are designed and engineered to the highest level.
The helmet can only protect you properly if it fits well. Try different sizes and choose the size which feels secure and comfortable on your head. Position the straps so that they do not cover the ears. Only wear helmets of a suitable size. When in a batting stance position, the helmet should not start to drop across the eye line nor should it be able to be removed from the rear when pulled in an upwards direction.

Small (mini) 54 to 56cm 21 to 22”
Medium (Junior) 56 to 58cm 22 to 23”

Note: measure from around the widest part of the head.

PRO GUARD SIZE GUIDE

The extensively developed Kookaburra Pro Guard is the ultimate protection system for batsmen replacing the traditional “thigh and inner thigh pads”.
If either a senior or youth player, ensure that the inner thigh guard fits comfortably on the inside leg, the waist band is firm just above the hips and thigh guard rests above your leading leg batting pad. Youth players who grow steadily each year are recommended to check their pro guards at the start of each season to ensure they are protected correctly.
