Batting Gloves

Many of the leading cricket brands offer a multitude of gloves, which will usually be of either a ‘sausage finger’ or hinged block construction. The choice between them really is a personal preference, although gloves with more sections may initially feel more comfortable.

Starter gloves for juniors will generally be of ‘sausage finger’ design with protection suitable for a lower level of hard ball cricket. Some at the lower price points will have cotton palms rather than leather, but the gloves are likely to be outgrown before they wear out.

An intermediate glove will have full leather palms, with firmer protection for the first two fingers of the bottom hand for extra impact resistance. Many have an additional foam inlay for shock absorption.

Advanced level will offer a Pittards leather (or equivalent) palm, which provides a softer feel and improved grip. The protection will also be more extensive both in terms of impact resistance and area covered (e.g. side bar panels on leading fingers).

We're Open!

 -------

We are pleased to inform that with effect from Tuesday 7th July we will be re-opening for business.

 -------

However, in order to comply with the government’s current social distancing measures, and to ensure that the safety of our customers is maintained, we will have to limit the numbers in the shop at any one time. In the circumstances we will be introducing an appointment based service.

 -------

We would therefore request that an appointment time is booked in advance to minimize any waiting time. This can be done by either phoning Richard on - 07831 662874 or emailing Richard direct with your requirements to chilternsports@gmail.com

 -------

We will ask customers to wear masks and gloves if handling products, and these will be provided together with hand sanitizer if required. Although the nature of shopping will no doubt feel different, we will naturally aim to maintain our usual levels of advice and service.

 -------

PLEASE NOTE – until we have had the opportunity to carry out an extensive upgrade to our website, the only areas which remain functional are the clothing stores and the cricket coaching products. We currently have in stock an extensive range of cricket and hockey equipment, but these are currently only available to purchase in-store.
