Yes, sorry I do understand. I will get in touch with Leo about advertising. I was just coming on to have a little feel about really and get some initial thoughts. Th pics on the webiste are photographs of ones that we have made. The Mayhem is actaully not out yet as we have not decided on the shape and may not release until next year as it really depends on how things go. Its just me (sorry I am a female actually!), my husband selling, and my father in law making - and we all do proper jobs as well so this is really just the start. Hope I did not offend anyone with trying to advertise, just looking for feedback at this stage really.

Roco and 100 not out - where abouts are you both based?

It isn't a problem now you realise, it is pretty inexpensive to advertise here and gives you an audience of pretty well informed cricketers.

Yes, becoming a sponsor does seeem like a good idea if we are properly going to get out there, just about to email Leo now.

Yes, my father in law is the bat maker, and then my husband sells as he works for the ECB and also first team captain as Keynsham so has good contacts. I am just helping out really, trying to get us a bit noticed - and as on school holidays have a little more time to spare! :)

We have the bats pressed where we buy the bats from - so we have them as the clefts and then do the handcrafting process from there.. That way we know they are properly pressed. They come from down in Sussex, and the boys go down there and hand pick the wood.

Just to say I have emailed LEO about sponsorship now so thank you for the tip off everyone. Please do get in touch if you have any more questions about the bats or the service though ;)

Yes, I do feel a little bit as a woman I should maybe not be here! But I have been involved in cricket quite a long time too as both my dad and brothers play, my dad is also the chairman at Keynsham so all in all I get pretty caught up in all of it!

The southwest is a good place for cricket and you are right peplow, a shortage of local bat makers - there are some around I know but not as many as in other areas.

Where abouts in the south west are you based?

Well I'll be the miserable sod and point out that sanding a bat made for you is a bit different to making bats, the boys in Sussex will be doing the making from the sound of it. Nothing wrong with having them done that way, many many do but it means TP Willow is a brand, not bat makers.

Sorry Talisman, I guess that is my fault using the wrong terms. It actually says on the website that its handcrafted rather than handmade.

Bradley Stoke is not far at all from Keynsham - we have no connection to the football though but best of luck in that!

Yeah it's a shame. Our home ground is at frys, for how long I don't know.
