Wicket Keeping

Gloves – It is recognised in the UK that individuals are presented with a choice between long square cuffs or shorter/rounder profile cuffs. It is very much a personal preference (i.e. what feels the most comfortable), between the two. Juniors however do tend to favour the shorter cuffs.

The main areas for consideration on selecting a glove is flexibility and protection. At Chiltern Sports we only stock and promote products that we believe provide a good level of suppleness combined with adequate padding.

Pads – Wicket-keeping pads differentiate from a batting pad in that they are lighter and less bulky. They have a shortened area above the knee and conventionally are fitted with two straps as opposed to the three straps on a batting pad, designed to make it more comfortable for squatting in the recognised wicket-keeping position.

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.
