STOCK STATUS, SHIPPING & RETURNS
As cricketers ourselves, we understand the importance of reliable stock information when purchasing an item. We know that cricketers need the equipment they order ASAP, a delay due to poor stock information and/or poor communication from the retailer can be much more than an inconvenience.
We aim to have everything that is listed on our website in stock. In the event that we do not have an item in stock, we will source it from the manufacturer immediately and inform you if there will be a delay. In the rare event that we do not have an item in stock and cannot source it from the manufacturer, we will contact you immediately to suggest an alternative, or give you a refund if we cant satisfy your need.
Some products are made to order, so we depend on the manufacturer to fulfil their side of the bargain before we can dispatch an item to you. Any products that are made/sent to order are clearly marked as such in the product description, with an approximate lead time to give you an idea of how long it will be before we dispatch your order.

We use reputable couriers for most orders, and royal mail for smaller items like accessories etc. We aim to dispatch your order within 3 days of payment, in 95% of cases, we dispatch your order on the same day, but please do allow us some time during busy periods, particularly Christmas and pre-season. If you live outside of UK & N. Ireland please email or call us for delivery pricing options.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FROM, OR SEND GOODS TO PAKISTAN. This is due to numerous fraud cases originating from the region that have stung other retailers.
