It's Just Cricket is a cricket shop in Central London, serving customers all over the world.
We strive to be different in a world where cricket shops are becoming increasingly the same. Look at almost every cricket shop and they will stock the same brands, at the same price, with nothing making them stand out at all.
But not here at IJC. We do things a little bit differently!
There are six main things about us that make us anything but your ordinary cricket store:
The IJC Philosophy
Every single bat on our shelves is handpicked by the team here. This means that we travel across the country to visit factories and warehouses and pick out the very best willow that the companies make. Often, we find bats which should be well over £400, that are under £200 - something which is impossible without handpicking. Unlike other retailers, we don't just get what is given to us by the manufacturer - we choose what is best for our customers. This means we don't stock just the biggest brands - we stock smaller ones, like Phantom and Hell4Leather, because we believe they offer exceptional, handmade, English bats, at a far more reasonable price than most of the so called bigger brands! We also stock the wider known names, but only in the price points we feel offer great value for money! Essentially, any bat on our shelves comes with our personal guarantee - we can tell you why we picked it and the story behind it. We are the only shop in the country which handpicks each and every one of our bats, senior and junior.
Special Benefits to Clubs
We offer "club commission" on any item that a member of your club purchases from It’s Just Cricket Ltd, for the duration of our respective existences. This means that the more your club spends with IJC, the more your club receives back in money from us. It is free to register, and payments start straight away! All members of the IJC team play club cricket, so we want to make sure we can actively benefit local grassroots cricket.
It's Just Cricket are at the forefront of the cricket reviewing industry. With over 4 Million views on our YouTube channel, and well over 700 videos, we put out new content almost every week. Our reviews are honest and unbiased (we've even sometimes gotten into trouble from the manufacturers for being too honest!), and aim to be informative, and not salesy. We provide information for customers who can't physically come to our store, and make videos about wider cricket equipment issues, not just the products in our stock.
Central London Location
It's Just Cricket is Central London's only specialist cricket store. Situated just five minutes walk from the world famous Kia Oval International Cricket Ground, we are open all year round. There is easy access to our shop by foot or public transport (both buses and London Underground services), as well as free car parking on-site.

Join our Platinum Lounge rewards scheme and be rewarded with free gifts on any bat purchase, and truly immerse yourself in the finest cricket retail environment out there.
The whole idea behind It's Just Cricket is to change the cricket industry. For too long it has been about the same brands making lots of money off customers who are unaware that there are better places out there. Places where we reply to your emails even at 4:30AM, where we sleep in the shop overnight because we've been working so late, and where we willingly forgo more money by not stocking some of the bigger brands, because they don't provide the best options for the customer.
IJC stands for It's Just Cricket. IJC stands for the best customer service in the world. IJC stands for a team who are as passionate about cricket as you are. IJC stands for the best kit at the best prices. IJC stands for cricket.
