Beautifully Handmade Cricket Bats

Welcome to Aldred Cricket Bats, the home of expertly crafted, handmade cricket bats for the amateur to the professional.

Offering the very highest quality cricket bats, all handmade by former Derbyshire County Cricketer Paul Aldred, the emphasis is very much on quality in both the design and manufacture of our bats giving not only the quality expected as professional cricketers but also the longevity that was once taken for granted but often forgotten in todays world whilst keeping prices competitive and affordable for all even though every single bat is handmade every single time.

We pride ourselves on having grown our business from literally zero to an old fashioned style business that is now world renowned and all through word of mouth just as the craftsmen of old worked and thrived. Whilst we have our website here to give an outline of our products and what we do please take a look for us on Facebook where we have a private members group page which we like to call the Aldred Cricket Bat family where literally every single thing we do is posted almost daily. Please feel free to request to join and come and join a growing company thriving on good old fashioned quality and service that stands out in the modern world. With 40 years experience in the game and some 15 years experience in and around the professional game both as a player and coach Paul is one of a few if not the only former professional first class cricketer to be physically hand making cricket bats from start to finish as it was done 100 years ago in the whole industry. Creating world class cricket bats from English willow, reducing air miles and promoting English quality craftsmanship Paul also often spends time with customers who come in for coaching tips alone especially the up and coming players wanting to improve and get to the next step on the ladder. Personal insight is impossible to replace and is paramount to the quality we produce with all our equipment for the game we love.


As we continue to grow enormously across the world anyone overseas please take a look through the products and services and get directly in touch with Paul via email as you can’t order on the website from overseas simply because we need to keep up with the latest shipping rates for every country as they are changing daily in the current times sadly so we endeavour to get the latest and best prices for insured shipping worldwide.

Each and every bat we make is made by hand, with majority being made to order in line with our customer’s exact specifications. We strive to help improve your game by supplying a bat that works for you, from the size of the handle and the thickness of the wood right down to the grip and overall finish.
