N.B. At this price, this service is only applicable for bats purchased from It's Just Cricket. Bats purchased from elsewhere can still be knocked in, but the service will cost more.
It's Just Cricket's acclaimed Knocking-In Service includes oiling, knocking in by hand (with a hand crafted, custom made Lignum Vitae bat mallet), and if requested, the application of edge tape and an anti-scuff sheet (for a small extra charge).
If adding this service, please allow an additional 2-3 weeks to your order. We knock all our bats in by hand, and ensure each bat is done to optimum performance levels, which cannot be rushed.
Get your bat ready to play with our professional, tailored service!

With the exception of small items (that will be sent through the post and put through your letterbox), all deliveries will require a signature on receipt. Our couriers will only make two attempts at delivery, so please make sure someone is there to sign for it. If you are unlikely to be at home on the date of delivery, we recommend that you provide a work address or next door neighbour’s address at checkout. If no one is at the delivery address when our courier tries to deliver your order, the courier will leave notification of an attempted delivery. The note will specify if you need to collect the parcel in person from your local postal collection office, contact the courier to arrange an alternative delivery date, or if they will attempt delivery the following day. Please note, in some cases, these may lead to a surcharge which the customer may be asked to pay.
Regarding returns, all of our products come with a 14 day money back guarantee (extended for special dispensation over the Christmas/New Year period). This is providing that the item has not been used and is returned as new, in its original packaging and excludes any postal costs incurred, which are your responsibility. Please note that we cannot refund any returns for bespoke items, such as custom made bats or customised helmets.
