About Us

Handmade Cricket bats in DevonWombat Cricket has been going since 2012 originally Moorland Bats which was formed in 2007. We have grown to be one of the main cricket specialists in the South West. Our showroom and workshop is situated in Tavistock in the heart of Devon. From here we handcraft our bats in the country, using only highest grades of English willow. We also provide a high quality range of soft leather equipment (pads, gloves, wicket keeping and kit bags) for both adults and juniors.

At Wombat Cricket, we have a range of cricket equipment that will meet the needs and price range for all customers. We can provide junior bats and equipment at ery competitive prices whilst not compromising on quality and safety on all our product range.

Our Podshaver (batmaker) and coaches are always available to give advice on suitability and which of our products would be most suitable at any given time. (Including advice on junior bat sizes.)

Every Wombat bat is individually handmade by our master bat maker Harry Solomon. Only the highest grades of hand selected English willow clefts are used along with the use of traditional tools. We make a range of bats that have three different profiles and a bespoke service to meet each individual player's needs.

Our bat making process: 1. Selecting the cleft by hand 2. Pressing the cleft and applying around 3ton of pressure over a period of time. 3. Splicing the cleft on our custom made jigs and cutting the handle to fit the cleft. 4. Cut out shoulders and shape of toe on the bat 5. Using a drawknife start the initial shaping of the bat removing large amount of willow from around the shoulder and toe areas. 6. Once the drawknife has taken off some willow we then use spokeshaves and rounded planes to remove willow from in between the spine and edge of the bat. 7. The shoulders and handle are shaped and sanded 8. Once the bat is at the correct weight, shaped to the right profile and is well balanced, it is then sanded down starting with a rough grit of 80 and then moved up through the grit leaves and is finished off with a fine 320 grit. 9. The bat has a wax finish applied to it and the handle is binded 10. Our stickers are applied to the bat and a grip to create the finished Wombat.
