"James at the The Cricket Store has a clear vision of what he wants his website to be, British bats, fully hand made with care and ultimately putting his customers first. Being a cricket purist myself and sharing his enthusiasm for bat making and the game itself, it was a no brainer for me to sign up."

Danny Owens, Owens Cricket

Having a working relationship with someone like James doesn’t come around often and it’s why World Class Willow are proud to offer our products on The Cricket Store. James takes real pride in offering customers honest and innovative products from real bat makers that make their own bats right here in the UK. By supporting The Cricket Store you’re supporting the British bat making industry…”

Mike Kennedy, World Class Willow

"The Barmy Army are delighted to be partnering with The Cricket Store who will be supplying kit for the Barmy Army CC, as we take on teams in both the UK and overseas. We are proud to support a business who sell bats and other kit from independent bat makers throughout the country and we can't wait to put the kit to good use representing England fans!"

Adam Canning, England's Barmy Army

James and The Cricket Store have a great concept and provide a great service for both the customer and independent bat makers. A great looking and easy to use website makes the job all the more suited for the end user with great options to speak direct to the bat makers gives customers a great opportunity to make the best decision in their new bat and equipment."
