Gray Nicolls Alpha Gen 1.0 Academy Cricket Bat. If you are looking to buy a Cricket Bat for your child moving on to Hard ball for the first time, then look no further! The Academy bat has a host of great features specifically designed at Juniors.
With the same shape as the full-size adult bats, the Alpha Academy benefits from a mid-high middle which packs a serious punch. Perfect for Juniors needing an English Willow bat for Hard ball. The middle position and balance point of this bat gives the Alpha a wonderful pick-up, allowing junior players to generate quick hand speed along with perfect manoeuvrability.
The design is bold and powerful, everything you might expect from a cricket bat named Alpha. Black, chrome and white stickers build towards the middle of the bat, giving an already imposing piece of willow yet more to strike fear into the hearts of bowlers with.
Weighing between 1lb10 and 2lb1oz, the Alpha is lightweight yet powerful, perfect for their first forays into hard ball cricket.
