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.

Blade Sports, Blackminster Business Park, Cadbury Courtyard, Evesham, Worcestershire WR11 7RE

There's the Sports HQ over in Redditch Beleive Ian Bell is an ambassador.

Evesham is more interesting, isn't that near Pryzm cricket?
Looks like Cicada or V Sports are the best options more locally though.

Blade sports is currently closed for the winter though. They'll open specially if you contact them first.

Any new cricket shops opened up yet? Want to have a play with the new GM range... Boundary Sports is now my closest, but I've heard mixed reviews.

I know Sol who runs Boundary and he's had issues with the people who were looking after the Business before, he's taken command of the shop now and is working on rebuilding it's reputation, follow them on instagram because they do Instagram only offers which might suit, doesn't stock GM Bats but he's recently got a batch of Keeley and Aero bats that are lovely, tell him Warren sent you. Also, the price isn't always the price if you catch my drift, plenty of haggling space.

He's always been about, but the day to day was being handled by another guy who's name I can't remember for the life of me. By his own admission he was taking on too many things outside of the shop and put his trust into people who let him down, like I say he's got a rebuild on his hands.

He's always gave me a good deal and really looked after my lad when it was his Birthday, gave him a load of stuff for next to nothing.

I picked up some Aero pads from Boundary the other week and like has been said work haggle for a better price. They had a decent range of of stock in.

Woodworm in Redditch is mainly an online business with next to no stock visible. What little stock they do have out can sometimes be well reduced but it's a lottery. They're welcoming when you pop in but they have to go and collect items from the warehouse for what you want.
