Adult Bat Buying Guide
How To Choose Your Cricket Bat
Whatever your style, whatever your game, there is a Gray-Nicolls bat for everyone.
Our Classic and Test ranges showcase iconic Gray-Nicolls features and contemporary design elements that make this collection our strongest yet. And for this season, we've added the new Originals Range, two retro bats that bring some iconic blades into the modern day.
We know it can be tricky to pick a bat. What style, weight and price? That's why we've created this handy page to help you make the right choice for this season.
With over a century of experience, and with every bat hand made by one of our bat makers, you are guaranteed incredible performance and service from Gray-Nicolls.
Your bat will come from the same trees as the professionals, with English Willow grown locally to Robertsbridge, East Sussex.
"By far the nicest looking equipment and the bats have the sweetest middles ever. Grown up using the equipment and the classic bats will never look out of place in the modern era." Chris Mclennan, Gillingham
There are a range of cricket bats that cater to all levels and abilities. Prices vary according to the grade of the willow used for the bat.
Bats are graded and therefore priced according to their aesthetic, and their predicted performance potential. Generally bats that look better cosmetically perform better, and are therefore priced accordingly.
A casual player on a Sunday might consider an option such as a Hypernova 1.0 4 Star, while a more regular player at a higher level would consider an Alpha 5 Star or a Gray-Nicolls Players edition.
"A good bat is the key to it all." David Gower
