First bats won’t come much better than the Vapour 1.0 Academy bat. That’s exactly what this bat will be to hundreds of cricketers who are making their first steps in the game. With a design inspired by England star Ollie Pope, if your child likes an eye-catching blue design then this will be the bat for them. The bat has a low, large middle, but remains perfectly weighted for a youngster thanks to our innovative shaping. We’ve finished the bat with an Extratec sheet to prolong the life of the face, meaning you won’t need to oil the bat before you use it.
