Kookaburra Size Guides
Bat Size Guides
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.
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.
Clothing Size Guide
Kookaburra have developed specific cricket clothing series with unique performance enhancing fabrics and styles. As each player differs and their preference to the amount of trouser ease allowed over the body, we would recommend to try the trousers on first for fitment and comfort prior to purchase.
Trouser Size Guide
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.
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.
Note: measure from just above the knee cap, to just below the hip.
