Cricket bat repairs and damage

Damage to Bats

Of course, it is possible that, despite all precautions, a cricket bat could still break with the first ball that it receives in a match. However, if you carry out all of the instructions in our bat care section, you will greatly reduce the chances of any damage being caused to the bat. The bat is made of wood and is a natural product and therefore there is no guarantee that the bat will not break. Superficial surface cracks can occur, but these should not detract from the performance of the bat.

Bat Repairs/Replacements

All cricket bats produced by Mars Cricket are of the highest quality and a great deal of care is taken to make sure that only the best products are sold to our customers. Nonetheless, we accept that sometimes bats can be damaged soon after they are purchased. In circumstances where damage is caused to your bat or if you are unhappy with the performance of the bat, we recommend that you inform us of the problem immediately . Your bat will then be inspected and we will advise you of the action to be taken on a case by case basis.

We offer a 6 month warranty with all of our bats. This warranty covers all repairs required that are caused as a result of reasonable use of the Mars Cricket bat. We do not give warranty for bat damaged on the toe as this is the weakest area of the bat and repeated impact will cause inevitable damage. Reasonable use involves, and is limited to, the using of the Mars Cricket bat to hit balls specifically designed for use in the sport of cricket. If the Mars Cricket bat is deemed un-repairable within this 6 month period then a free replacement will be offered. Mars Cricket reserve the right to renege on this warranty if they believe that the bat has been used in ways not deemed reasonable. No cash refunds will be offered and the postage costs relating to the returning of bats will be borne by the customer.

These terms apply to your order. We may change our terms and conditions at any time, so please do not assume that the same terms will apply in the future.

None of these terms affect your legal rights and these are not diminished in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from the terms to minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.
