It can be confusing, what does your child need to play cricket. Here's some help...
So what do your kids need? There are ECB regulations about what protective equipment under 18's need to wear. This only applies when they are playing with a hard ball.
Usually U11's play with soft balls so don't need protection.
What do they need?
|Under 11's||Under 12's and older|
|Cricket Shirt||Cricket Shirt|
|Cricket Trousers||Cricket Trousers|
|Cricket Jumper||Cricket Jumper|
|Ideally, proper Cricket Shoes|
|Abdo Guard ("Box")|
|Helmet (also for wicket keeper's standing up to the stumps)|
|Cricket Bat - the right size - not too big|
We have ECB qualified staff on hand to advise you on what you need, and what you don't. Please feel free to ask anything you're unsure about.
