From Cleft to the Crease
Our Junior Bats are offered in three grades as described below:
Players Grade 1+
Our Players Grade will be the best pieces of wood we have in our workshop and would be the same quality that the international cricketer would utilise.
For example tight grain or predominantly sapwood which is all white wood, no blemishes and exceptional performance. This grade is very rare and is limited in availability. These bats will be made from the premium top 1% of English Grade 1+ Willow, as used by professional and international players.
Our Grade 1 English Willow cricket bats will have 7 or more Grains which will have a white clear face and no blemishes on the face of the blade or with a small strip of heartwood. Heartwood is from the centre of the tree and is generally preferred by Pro players.
Our Grade 2 English Willow cricket bats will have 5 or more grains and will have the odd blemish or spec mark, this will not affect performance.
This is a unique service we are offering our customers, a bespoke cricket bat based on your specification and desire, handmade in England. Take the journey and design a bat that will be made by hand and eye alone by our master bat maker to your exact specification.
You can use the bat builder form to make your ultimate cricket bat, with a 'Additional information' text box to help us with further particulars you require.
A complete guide has been created detailing all the bat terminology, which we believe will assist you in creating your ideal cricket bat. For example, handle type, bat shape, blade profile and sweetspot position fully explained with images, just click on the link.
We all know us batsmen can be very fussy so we can alter the length of the blade, the weight of the bat, the length of the handle, and the shape of the handle. We hand grade our clefts so can usually find a cleft that you are looking for.
By hand crafting our cricket bats we can make the bat you want, from the profile of the bat, edge size, a concaved shape or a full profile. We can position the sweetspot for the kind of conditions you play in. Fast bouncy pitches where runs come from flat bat shots need light bats with a high middle as scoring shots come from generating bat speed. Low bouncing pitches need heavier bats with lower middles. Bat speed is not as important as getting value for shots, so a slightly heavier bat is recommended.
For example bats for the UK and USA we would recommend low middles due to the general low & slow nature of the pitches, while we would suggest bats to be used in Australia/South Africa to have a slightly higher middles due to the fast and bouncy pitches you are likely to encounter. At DKP Cricket we pride ourselves on getting the right bat for every customer. We would love to discuss further particulars on your bat with you.

PERSONALISE YOUR CRICKET BAT
A cricket bat's weight, balance and length should be made to match your height, build and your personal style of play. The sweet spot should be in the part of the bat that will assist you in your batting style.
The handle length, size and shape can also be customised to suit you. Feel free to ask for any adjustments to be made however trivial they may seem.
