Hi Ian, there are 2 ways to do this. If you live locally to us you could bring them into our store in Loughborough. If this isn't possible then you could order the service online and forward the bats to us at our Loughborough address.

Hi, yes we can.
Is it possible to send 2 bats for knocking in? One has a bit of damage to the toe but Iím not concerned about it and Iím gunna use it until it dies. The other is brand new and Iíd rather it gets professionally knocked in instead of me doing it

Hi, I have oiled my bat but I canít knock it in. If I send it to you and you oil it more would it ruin the bat ?
Posted by Samir on 12/02/2019
Reply from Talent Cricket on 12/02/2019
Hi, we would assess it first and if it has already been oiled we probably wouldn't oil it again as it would risk deadening the fibres of the willow.
Hi, Iíve got two used bats that need re-knocking in, (one hasnít been used for several years), and both have face guards on. Are you able to do your knocking in service on both of these bats, and how much would it be? Thanks.

Hi, knocking in normally costs £20 per bat but if you can get them to us and it doesn't take as long they would be closer to £15 per bat.
What is the process once I have ordered the knocking-in service online?

Hi, we just fit the clear anti scuff after knocking in, we don't have an alternative covering. We don't sell any bats that are ready knocked in.
Hi, Does this price include postage and packaging? If not, how much extra is that?
Posted by Sam on 16/02/2015
Reply from Talent Cricket on 16/02/2015
It doesn't include p&p, this would be £5.95 extra.

Yes, we would also recommend some gentle 'playing in' with a good quality old ball in the nets for a few sessions as well.
do you do knocking in service to bats that are not bought from you?
