    Hi mate, good to see you're getting started with cricket and welcome to CW.

    For leisure cricket I use old bats - no english willow. Kookaburra Gold Crown is a classic, terrible bat thats perfect for Backyard or frontyard cricket.

    Size 4 bats are about the right size if you're 9.
    Size 6 will work for about 11-13 year olds but you can get away with it for ages - we still use a 6 on the beach.

    After that you go on to short handles (SHs) (if you're about 160-170cm tall) or full size (if you're taller).
