George Setterfield, Head of Cricket at Downside School

“At Downside School, we choose to use Bat Doctor because of the unparalleled service we always receive. The bats are always repaired to an extremely high standard, and look as good as new. Sam was extremely friendly, and turned the job around in no time at all for an very reasonable price. I’d happily recommend Bat Doctor to anyone.”

Witney Mills CC, Cherwell Cricket League

"Our members trust and use the services of OX29 with consistently glowing reviews we see lots of new looking (and sounding) bats being used at nets and games. OX29 are easy to work with and always flexible to our needs. In addition to excellent bat repair services, we find OX29 quality when proving new equipment too. OX29 balls are our ball of choice for juniors and seniors alike, they hold their shape and hold shine well."

Sam Buckfield, High Wycombe CC

"I always come to crossy when I have an issue with a bat because I know the job will be carried out in a proffessional and effective manner. Every old broken bat I've brought to Sam and every time he somehow gives a new lease of life to each of them. I would reccomend crossy to anyone as he has a truly remarkable skill set when it comes to bat repair. "

Sanjay Mistry, Cumnor CC

"The OX29 bat doctor is both skilled and quick at his craft. Having repaired a trusty bat that I had condemned following a large split, he came to my rescue in the middle of a week during peak season delivering a repair on a tricky toe crack with great results. My match bat was just in time to use for the Saturday match. I’d say he offers wizardry rather than repairs and there’s no need to look any further than OX29!"

Simon Launder, Bampton CC

"OX29 Cricket Bat Repairs is a true magician because he saved my SS Ton from going in the bin.

​It looks a million dollars now. Thank you"

Tom Powell, Cumnor CC

"I chose to use OX29 Bat doctor as I knew it was a fast and reliable service. The quality of the refurb was up there with the best, and at a much reasonable price than other services. The bat came back as though it was brand new. I have already recommended Sam to many of my friends and will continue to do so in the future."

'Broke my handle at the tail end of last season. Had used the bat for two seasons and wasn’t looking forward to a costly replacement. The Bat Doctor’s handle replacement service served me well and the bat has been going strong in winter nets.'

'Excellent service from the Bat Doctor! My bats looks brilliant with a neat finish. I originally said I didn't need them for a couple of weeks, but I ended up needing them early. Sam managed to get them finished which was perfect. I would 100% recommend him!'

Dan Walker, Facebook.

Quality and flexible service, great products as well as repairs. Used OX29 on many occasions, the only place you should consider for a bat repair in Oxfordshire!

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!)

Such a good service from start to finish. Great communication, really fair pricing and the quality of the refurbishment was exceptional. Very happy with Sam’s work, he’s clearly very skilled at what he does and applies this to each bat - will be using him for all future bat repair needs. 5 ⭐️

Fantastic service from Sam at OX29 Bat Doctor and couldn't recommend him more highly. A truly unique experience getting to choose your bat and having made to spec, exactly how you like it.

I also had two of my old bats repaired, both of which I thought I'd never be able to use again...

Thanks Sam, see you next time!

Tom Small, Google

Great service at a very reasonable price. Friendly and clearly loves what he does. Refurbished my bat to a fantastic standard and spent time chatting about the bat upon collection. Will definitely use again in the future.

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. 🏏🏏🏏

First class knowledge and service. Re handled a bat, better than new, ideal for your everyday needs in terms of a grip etc last minute. Happy to share knowledge when tinkering with my own bats! Highly recommend Sam and his kit! Top work

Sam is extremely friendly and even more skilled at repairing a bat with major structural damage. Twice my bat has broken (in different areas) and both times I have received it back from him looking and sounding better than it was before breaking. Highly recommended him

Scott Wesselo, Google

I had my 3 cricket bats, all with varying toe damage ranging from bad to terrible, sent to Sam to see if there was any work to be done and to see if one was salvageable. After receiving them back today I can say what a fantastic and clean job he has done! Quick, quality service and at a brilliany price too 👍🏼
