Bat Storage for winter
« on: September 17, 2012, 08:28:38 AM »

Hi all.  Advice please....  Should I store my bat in the house (where it may be too warm and dry the wood due to heating) or in the garage (where it may get too cold in winter)??

Aslong as its not in direct heat or moisture you should be ok. I play indoor during the winter so never get stored anywhere for too long

If it's indoors and not next to any heat source it will be fine. It's unlikely to get much warmer than 20C.

I'd give the bat an end of season clean; if it's not got any anti-scuff, give it a light sanding and an oiling, and store it in a cover or plastic bag.

I have blocked the heating outlet in my room so my bats are not dried, so I just keep them in room as it doesn't get too warm or cold.

Yes and wood is affected by extremes of cold and warm temperatures so I thought I'd ask the question.

Best advice here, a light sand and a bit of oil will seal the bat for you

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread however, I need some advice.

Mate purchased a brand new bat and used it for half a season. Thereafter the bat had been stored in his kit bad dumped in a shed for the past 3/4 years. Any advice on preparing this bat for the winter nets / new season?

Thanks

Hope the shed is dry or there could be a mould on the bat after 3 to 4 years The blade will need  a sand and two coats of oil keep the blade a hit with a bat mallet or push your thumb nail into the bat face if theres indentation marks knock the bat in also the grip will probably need changing.

3/4 years you say.
What bat is it?

If it's something i like the looking of and it's in my weight then the bat will be dead, and the best thing to do would be to post it to me and i'll dispose of it properly  ;)

Loft isn't great as it is exposed to changes of temperature. Better to keep them in a cupboard at a more constant temperature.
