Bat Women Project

Empowering Women in Cricket

Custom Bat Designs by Clare

In the wake of Australia’s rich legacy of women’s cricket and the stellar performances of the Australian women’s cricket team, it’s high time we focused on tailored bat designs for female cricketers. With the rising popularity of the Big Bash series and increasing interest among girls, there’s a growing need for more options in bat designs that cater specifically to women and girls.
