Based in Hampshire since our launch in 2006, BT Blades Cricket has built up a fantastic reputation for producing some of the finest handmade cricket bats in the South of England. A brand that started as a hobby has slowly grown to be a reputable name in Hampshire as well as other parts of the country and beyond.
Our bat maker Ben Thane has been making cricket bats since the turn of the millennium and in this time he has travelled the world learning his trade. There is no right and wrong when it comes to a bat as everyone has different specifications that are unique to them. This is where we can help. We hand-make every bat which allows us to always provide something that is bespoke and personal to you.
Many of our customers have been with us since the early days as we guarantee a bespoke, professional service at a fair price. We like to think this is because people who get their cricket kit from us know they are getting the best quality Grade One English willow on the marketplace.
BT Blades Cricket - professional, personal and friendly.
