Midlands Cricket Shops?
« on: January 27, 2018, 08:30:31 AM »

Hi all,
Where do we reckon the best Midlands cricket shops are, ideally not too far from Birmingham.

There's Boundary Sports, V Sports and then Talent in Loughborough... Trying to find some batting gloves today!

They're a bit too far- heading from Coventry, they'd ideally be closer than Loughborough! I swear a forum sponsor opened a branch in Birmingham, once, but maybe I imagined it!

Is that the one near the Ricoh arena past the Aston Martin distribution centre?

If Uzi is still around, I'll go there! Is V Sports any good nowadays? The website of both there and Cicada doesn't fill me with hope!

A work colleague of mine took her son to v sport and said the selection was surprisingly good

Friendly staff etc.

@19reading87 might be able to shed more light

I dont think uzi had a shop in Birmingham anymore but I could be mistaken

Uzi Sports has gone from Brum.

There is a reasonable size hole in the Birmingham area.

Cicada as said is ok. Seen some decent V Sports sticks but never been. There is Boundary Sports on Kings Heath but I am not a fan personally.

Stac had some nice sorts when I went in the other day, worth messaging him on Facebook as he's a one man band and gas 2 workshops.
Worth visiting him for his info on who trained who as a bat maker.

I'd avoid it, it isn't run by UZI Sports anymore as far as I'm aware. I net at the centre there and the last time I looked the store only had cheap kashmir bats.


On another note, there is Blade Sports in Evesham.
