Batting Pads

Differentiation in batting pads is relatively straightforward., with the emphasis on greater density of protection while retaining lightness in the higher priced products.

Most cheaper pads (up to £35), will be ambidextrous, whereby the wider wing to protect the leading leg is applied to both sides of the pad. Importantly, this does not have the effect of making the pad more cumbersome, but rather allows it to wrap round the legs effectively.

Starter pads are generally constructed of lightweight foam with a single vertical bolster against the shin.

Intermediate pads are likely to be of traditional cane construction, with a padded tophat (the piece above the knee roll) and secondary bolsters for the shin area. The middle and bottom straps are usually wider to provide greater comfort.

For an advanced pad, expect a pre-moulded shaped design with improved integrated knee protection, often including a Gel insert. The pad will be designed to curve round the leg and best lightweight materials will have been used to ensure maximum protection does not sacrifice lightness and mobility.

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.
