Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I get my custom cricket bat?

A. There are two main ways to get your bat. The first is to order online.

  • Online: Purchase your bat through the web store. Your bat will then be made to your specifications. From the order date the bat will be made in 2 weeks and posted 
  • In person (fitting): During the week we are open to do custom bat fittings where we pick out a cleft in the grade you wish and discuss specifications for your perfect cricket bat. From the date of fitting it will take 2 weeks to complete the bat. Contact for an appointment. 
  • In person (custom bat making session): On Fridays (9am-7pm) the JPGavan workshop is open exclusively available for custom bats made on the spot, while you watch in about 1.5 hours. Contact for an appointment, we'll need a few days notice.
