Bat Care

Elite Cricket pride ourselves on only supplying the very best. We have a fantastic manufacturer and this is what he says about caring for your bat.

There is no need to oil an Elite Cricket bat, the bats are finished in the factory with a state of the art sealant that keeps the moisture in the willow, this is invisible to the eye.

We do, however, recommend some time knocking in around the edges and toe of the bat, first with a mallet and then with some "throw downs" using an older ball. Our bats are perfectly pressed, but are not knocked in, due to our willow being Grade 1 plus, it needs some looking after. We recommend using an anti scuff sheet to protect the face of the willow.


If you ever have any questions or queries on caring for your bat, feel free to reach out, our team will be happy to help.
