Best shop stock in the southeast area?
« on: March 26, 2019, 09:15:03 AM »

Looking for a shop that carries quite a few bats to pickup in person.
Where in Kent or London tube system has a decent range for bat buying day trip?
Sorry if this is in wrong section, didn't know where to put it, feel free to move (still getting used to layout of this site).

Good question.
VKS is a forum sponsor and would be a good place to start. They have a great range and their own brand stuff is brilliant value.

Depending where you are coming from there is also

Beckenham sports
Romida leatherhead
Fordham sports
Colt cricket (literally next door to Fordham)
Its just cricket near the oval.
Morrants
3D cricket
Warsop (if you can get there, definitely worth a visit)

You could probably get from Morrant to VKS on the Central Line in under two hours.  :(

If you are in Kent, a hell for leather trip would be fun...
