Pre Prepared v Ready to Play Bats


It is fair to say that the terms "Knocked In", "Pre Prepared" and "Ready to Play" can be confusing. Based on discussions with all our bat making partners, here are some simple notes regarding the terminology used, to hopefully give you a better understanding.

KNOCKED IN - if noted YES then the bat is fully factory prepared, with only gentle net practice required prior to match use. Where a bat is described as PART this means that it has been pre-prepared in the factory but is not fully knocked in. For further help on this please use the Bats Info link at the top of each page for advice and notes on this procedure.

PRE PREPARED - part prepared by the manufacturer, including oiling and additional pressing under a factory roller. These bats are NOT fully prepared and NOT ready to play. Please use the Bats Info link at the top of each page for advice and notes on the "Knocking In" procedure you need to carry out prior to use.

READY TO PLAY - Whilst this does mean the bat can be played with right away please see our note below as we believe the more you prepare and look after your bat the better it will serve you.

As cricket lovers we believe that a bat is an investment of both your money and your time and with knocking in we believe that the more time and effort you put in, then the bat will perform better and last longer.
