Helmets

The Kenmore Cricket Club recommends that all players wear helmets from under 11 and up, specifically:

 

    • All players from the under 11 age group and above should wear a helmet with a face guard when batting.
    • All players from the under 11 age group and above should wear a helmet with a face guard when fielding in-close - either during a game or during practice.  In-close fielders refers to fielders closer than 10m to the stumps (except slips, gully and wicketkeeper).
    • It is recommended that wicketkeepers wear a helmet with a face guard when 'keeping up to the stumps.
    • It is also in the players' best interest for the helmet to conform to the relevant Australian Standard.
