2013 Non-Approved Bats

The ASA regulations governing banned bats, which are followed in Britain and Europe, have been revamped for the 2010 season.

While there are now fewer bats on the ASA banned bat list, there are actually more bats banned overall. This is because all bats manufactured before 2000 are now non-approved, full stop. The reason is that many bats tend to become more potent as they age, due to fibres breaking down and becoming more elastic. So many older bats that passed performance tests when manufactured would not do so now.

However, the determination of whether a bat is approved or non-approved is now much simpler. To be legal, a bat must:

  • Have an ASA 2000 or ASA 2004 stamp.

  • Not appear on the ASA non-approved bat list.
These are the criteria that the BSF and ESF will use this year in judging whether bats can be used in BSF-sanctioned and ESF competition.
