Last year we opened a store on the hallowed turf of Lord’s Cricket Ground, claiming a much-prized unit near the Nursery Pavilion. There are three souvenir shops in the ground, but ours is the only equipment store. We’re proud to have one of our shops in such an esteemed location, surrounded by the rich history of Marylebone Cricket Club.

Moving to Lord’s has allowed us to expand our product range, meaning we’ve got something for every player and every budget. We stock all major brands, from Kookaburra to Grey Nicolls, Spartan and Gunn & Moore. We also have a selection of boutique names such as Payntr, Newberry and SF.

If you’re visiting Lord’s, pop in and take a look at what we have in store. You can also chat with our friendly and knowledgeable staff about anything cricket-related. We even offer a bat knocking-in service so your willow is ready to waft as soon as you step out of the door.

We’re open Monday to Friday from 11am until 6pm, and Saturdays from 9am until 4pm.
