Crossbat Cricket
« on: June 03, 2017, 04:08:19 PM »

Crossbat Cricket have been very active on the twitters lately. Anyone know anything about them, or used one. They seem very reasonably priced.

Yes this one is my little venture. I don't want to say too much as at this stage, I am not a forum sponsor (I will be soon), but all the bats are handmade in the UK, and I am really happy with how everything looks. Website needs a lot of work which is my next project!

I like the stickers too, as others have said it's a simple, striking design, good work mate.

One of the openers at our club has been using a Crossbat bat this season and it's been going like a rocket.

Picked one up on EBay recently - nice looking bat - stickers are very classy. Not used it yet as seller said more preparation needed so will have to find a bit of time to knock it in a bit more first.

Correct. There are around 10-12 bats from my first ever batch floating around which were made in Pakistan. These bats will be mostly stickered up with the pink labels, however, there maybe the odd bat here or there with other colours. I made the decision around 3 months ago that all bats moving forward should be UK made' so any new bat that goes out today is 100% UK made (including the stickers!).

Forum admins, I will email this evening to get the forum sponsorship payment made etc.

I picked up a very reasonable Crossbat with a very ugly back
Prepped it up. Put on some sticker I had hanging about and big son pinched it.
He loves it and it really does go.
Photos to follow.
