Warranty Terms

Cricket bats are made from willow which is a natural material, and such there is no certain time a cricket bat will last. Deterioration and a small amount of cracking are normal & inevitable. This shouldn’t have any impact on the performance of the bat however you should sand it out. SJ SPORTS always recommends having an extratec fitted to get maintenance free use and longevity for your bat.

It is highly recommended that you do not use your bat against a bowling machine. Consistent use against a bowling machine can severely damage the bat and will reduce the life. Please consider using different bat to practice against bowling machines. Cricket bat will last longer if you do regular maintenance.
