Junior bats are scaled down in size and weight to meet this important requirement. bat size approx age height of batsman bat length bat width

Cricket Helmet Size Guide

...... a good fitting helmet is worn with the peak protruding horizontally from the line of the eyebrows. It should feel firm but comfortable with no excessive movement in any direction. To measure, run a tape measure around the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows, around the side - just above the ears to the ‘bump’ on the back of the head. Over time the internal padding will mould to the shape of the head. Size of helmet To fit head circumference Typical Age
Small Boys 51 - 52cm 6 - 8
Boys 53 - 54cm 9 - 11
Youths 55 - 56cm 12 - 15
Mens 56cm and above 15+
