OX29 Custom Cricket Bats

Your cricket bat, your way.

Whether you've got a favourite bat that you want replicated, or you've decided on a new spec of cricket bat that you want us to make from scratch, we've got you covered. Our custom handmade bats allow you to wield a bat that is as tailored to you as possible.

There's no aspect of the bat that we cannot customise to your needs, as each bat is individually selected, and individually crafted by hand, to suit your needs. The grade of English willow, the weight, the length, handle shape, toe shape, middle position, & more. You can customise your cricket bat from top to bottom, to ensure it matches your requirements out in the middle. 

The full breakdown of the customisable options can be found on our Custom Bat Builder. Here, you will be able to select from all of our customisable bat criteria, and proceed with an online order.

Get in touch with us.

We only work with the highest quality willow.

You can select from Grade 1 Plus clefts, all the way down to Butterfly Grade clefts. We pride ourselves on making beautiful cricket bats, and working exclusively with English Willow from the best willow merchants in the country, ensures that we do.

  • Grade 1 Plus - £400

    This is our top grade of bat. This bat will have 8 or more perfectly straight grains, but it will also be graded on weight and performance. Aesthetically it will be absolutely beautiful, and should really pack a punch due to the number of grains on the face.

  • Grade 1 - £325

    This is our next best-looking bat. It will have at least 6 straight grains on the face, there may be some red wood on one of the edges, however the playing area will generally be very clean. There may be the odd knot or spec away from the hitting area. 

  • Grade 2 - £275

    Again, this a very good quality piece of wood, perhaps with slightly more red wood, however this won’t be to the detriment of the performance. There will generally be at least 6 straight grains, with slightly more blemishes, pin knots or specks visible.

Custom Bat Builder

We know that cricket bats are not a one-size-fits-all product. Our custom bat builder allows OX29 customers to build their perfect cricket bat, to their exact specification. A choice of only the very top grades of English willow, you can have confidence that we're working with the best materials, guarunteeing you a cricket bat as good as any on the market today.

We loathe to say that our bats are better than any other brand, as this is not case. What we will say, is that we guaruntee to make your bat to your exact specification, using the most suitable cleft from our stock. If you'd like to choose your cleft either in the workshop, or via WhatsApp, then you are very welcome to.

At OX29 Bat Doctor, we believe in 4 key cricket bat characteristics: Overall length, handle length, blade length, & middle position. These 4 characteristics will dictate how your bat feels, and how your bat plays. Changing just one of these characteristics can change the way your bat feels, the way your bat performs, and the way that you play.

Our custom bat builder caters for all of these options, and more.

  • Classic

    Our classic red and black stickers are the colours that our customers know us by. We love this colour scheme, and we know lots of you do too.

  • Oxford Blue

    We’re an Oxford company, and blue is the colour of Oxford, it’s as simple as that. This beautiful navy blue colourway ties into our location on the map, while giving a smart visual on our bats. 

  • Hawthorn

    The first of our new colour schemes is a nod to Sam’s former mentor and inspiration, the late Gordon Clack. The colours match his famous ‘Tornado’ bats, which of course coincide with the name of his business, Hawthorn Sports. 

  • Minimalist

    Our minimalist colour scheme is here for those of you who enjoy a more classy and elegant look to their cricket bat. Less in your face, with more subtle and minimalistic branding.

  • Sam is a master bat maker and Doctor! Gave me plenty of options, and insights to help decide on a stick, took all the time I needed, and then delivered a masterpiece. You get a top top quality bat, at a very decent price.

  • I've used Sam for a couple of bat repairs and a custom bat. Fantastic service from a fantastic guy. Very reliable and the bat he made me is unreal. Highly recommend to anyone looking for new gear or repairs. I'll certainly be using him again!

  • Created my bat via the Bat Builder option and couldn’t be happier with it. My bat arrived within a few days of ordering and after knocking in I took it for it’s first net session last week. It looks, feels and sounds great and can’t wait for the season to start. Would definitely recommend Sam’s bats and will be ordering again next year when my son needs his first SH bat.

  • Brilliant experience. Sam is attentive to all needs. I have only just started using my new bat but it pings like nothing else I’ve ever used. You should be buying your next bat from OX29!!!

  • Excellent service and great value, highly recommended!!

    Sam made me a custom bat to match my old one that succumbed to a yorker. The result is fantastic and I’m looking forward to scoring lots of runs with it this season.

  • Massive thanks to Sam at OX29 Bat Doctor, could not be more happier with the bat and the service. Sam was able to cater for my specific requests when it came to making my bat, weight / blade length / handle length / edge width / shoulder & toe shape / grade of wood etc. If your after a truly personalised bat then this is the place to go. I would definitely recommend OX29 Bat Doctor to my friends and team mates.

  • Sam helped me to decide on the spec for a new bat, based on a nice conversation about my requirements, type of play etc…. No upselling etc. He even encouraged my son to stick with his existing bat for now! I ended up with a custom made grade 2 bat. Have used it for the first match and it is AWESOME! Compared with my old GM (bought from Decathlon. which is actually lighter) it felt so much nicer, easier takeaway and the power was amazing.
    Overall the service was great, final result great and aftercare I know will also be spot on (according to other cricketers who have bought Sam’s bats). Fully recommend OX29!! (Batting gloves also really comfortable!)

  • Fantastic service from Sam at the ox29 Bat Doctor I love my new hand crafted cricket bat. It is made to the weight, size and shape I wanted and with his expert opinion has made me beautifully hand crafted bat. Also supplying with full new kit for up coming season. Highly recommend the bat Doctor for all your cricketing needs.

  • Quality bat made with care. Took an old favourite bat of mine and created a new one just like it. The softs are fantastic, and as a wicket keeper who gas struggled to fit all my kit in my bags, the kitbag is fantastic. Good bloke aswell!

  • Sam sorted me out with a custom grade 1 bat like none I have ever used. He kept me up to date throughout the process and produced a spectacular work of art. The end result far exceeded my expectations and he delivered on all accounts and then some. Overall service was excellent with a very quick turnaround time from start to finish. To top it all off the sticker and logo design is world class and I am beyond excited to kick off the new season with this marverlous new gear!
