For Natural finish (untreated) bats:-
Before use, apply a light coat of raw linseed oil (bat oil) to the face,
back edges and toe with the fingers and palm of the hand. Avoid oiling
the splice area.
3 or 4 further light coats should be applied to the face, edges and toe
at about weekly intervals. Clean the bat using fine sand paper before
each application. Repeat occasionally if the bat is very dry.
After oiling lay the bat flat for a few hours.
For bats with a cover on the face:-
Apply oil as described above, but only to the back, uncovered edges and
For polycoated bats:-
No oiling is required, however, during play the polycoating will wear
from the toe area and the exposed willow should be lightly oiled as
All bat faces have been expertly pressed to provide an optimum
resilient playing surface and do not need further pressing. However, the
face, especially the front edges, will be further improved and its
useful life prolonged by careful 'knocking-in' with an old leather
A few words of caution: take great care when knocking in the edges and
toe as hitting too hard may crack the willow - take your time and be
patient! The blade should be knocked in on the face of the bat including
the edge of the face but not on the sides of the blade, the underneath
of the toe or back of the blade.
After knocking-in, the bat should be used to hit short catches and/or
"throw-downs" with an old, good quality cricket ball. It is advisable to
initially avoid use against a new ball in either nets or a match.
To maintain your bat in peak condition we recommend you to follow this
Don't expose to extremes of temperature
Avoid prolonged spells in Car
Don't over-oil. It is more dangerous to
over-oil than to under-oil. Over-oiling adds weight, spoils driving
power and may cause rot.
Don't ever, ever stand the bat in oil.
Don't allow the bat to become damp.
Don't misuse or treat carelessly off the
pitch, for example at nets, or in changing rooms.
Don't use cheap hard balls. These will
damage the bat.
Don't continue to play with a damaged
bat; this will aggravate the damage to a point where the bat may be
Do prepare the bat carefully
Do store the bat in off-season in a cool
dry atmosphere away from excessive heat or damp.
Do re-oil the bat after any prolonged
period of non-use: it's particularly important to remember to do this
prior to using in pre-season indoor nets.
Do inspect the bat regularly for damage
in play and repair promptly.
Repairs and Service:
In normal use, superficial face and edge marks along with slight surface
cracking will occur. This is to be expected; it does not detract from
the performance of the bat and may be ignored.
Other damage, such as splitting of the toe as a result of hitting a
yorker, or damage caused by a mis-timed shot (which happens to even the
best player!) can more often than not be repaired.
