Know Woodstock Through Their Own Words
Woodstock's aim is to provide the finest quality handcrafted cricket bats suitable for the best players in the world. We are based just outside Ludlow in the South Shropshire Hills where we manufacture the bats. Woodstock brings traditional qualities from the past and combine them with modern techniques so that the bats are geared towards the highest levels of the modern demanding game. The bat profiles that we produce are cutting edge in their design and performance.
At Woodstock we use the finest hand selected willow harvested in the South of England and the best quality 12 piece sarawak cane from Indonesia for the handles. It takes over 3 hours of detailed workmanship to create 1 handcrafted Woodstock bat and involves over 25 individual processes. Great attention is taken in every process to ensure a beautifully balanced and finished bat from the shaping of the cleft with draw knives and planes to the time spent in the sanding, polishing, labeling and gripping.
Players are fitter and stronger than ever requiring sophisticated equipment that not only brings the traditional qualities of bat making to the fore, but is also geared towards the demands of today's powerful, performance cricketer. In addition to our handcrafted cricket bats, we offer ranges of pads, gloves, balls, kit and equipment, made from the highest quality materials in our distinct classical styling.
