Our ‘Try-Before-You-Buy’ Service
Unlike other retailers, we offer a ‘try-before-you-buy’ service using tennis balls, which takes the guesswork out of choosing a bat that best truly suits you.
While tennis balls will obviously not ping off like a real cricket ball, the idea is for you to be to test out the weight, ‘pick-up’, and balance of a bat. You will be swinging the bat instinctively, getting a sense of timing and of how the bat feels in your hands.
Bat Preparation & Repairs
Once you’ve found ‘the one’, you can then optionally have it prepared by us, saving you hours of knocking-in. If the time has come for an upgrade, come and see us at Topline!
Here, we love cricket bats. We know that a lot of bats are special. They’ve been by your side for many seasons and have tormented a great deal of bowlers. After helping you find the fence for many a year, your bat might be a little tired, or maybe worse! If your favourite has copped one-too-many yorkers, gone at the handle, or been chewed by the dog; don’t stress! You need not necessarily buy a brand new stick. First, bring your bat in and have it checked out by our experts here at Topline. We offer a wide range of on-site cricket bat repair services, including:
- Boning edges
- Sanding back
- Removing and replacing Extratec sheets
- Handle replacement
- Weight reduction
- Fixing minor and major cracks and other damage
- Toe guards, and much more!
Topline has a wide selection of bat grips available for purchase, and we are happy to apply these to your bat, or fix up your existing grip, free of charge.
