- DO NOT OVER-OIL YOUR BAT – excessive oil will add unnecessary weight, may spoil driving power, or even cause wood rot.
- DO NOT OIL SPLICE OR HANDLE – oil on the splice or handle will cause the glue holding your handle in place to weaken.
- DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR BAT TO DAMP OR WET SURFACES – do not allow the base of your bat to get wet as this will cause the toe of the bat to swell and cause cracking.
- DO NOT USE CHEAP BALLS – Playing a quality cricket bat against a less resilient cheap ball will cause damage to your bat. Quality blades are designed to give the best results against good quality leather balls.
- DO NOT USE YOUR BAT AGAINST A BOWLING MACHINE – we recommend that you only use an old bat for practice against a bowling machine
- RESPECT YOUR BAT – Throwing your bat or hitting the ground with it will cause damage to both your bat and your cricketing reputation. This type of damage is easily recognized and will not be covered by ELLERTON Bats.
