Unique to the industry, Gray-Nicolls grow only the
finest English willow for the production of their
cricket bats. Salix Caerulea or Alba Var varieties are grown
and harvested by the Company in a willow replenishment
programme pioneered more than 50 years ago.
Clefts are air dried for approximately six weeks to
Ensure perfect moisture content and the very best
performance. Every aspect of the bat making
process is very carefully overseen to guarantee a
product of excellent quality.
All bats are given a final quality control inspection.
Performance is tested using a Lignum Vitae
mallet. In this way, the world renowned quality and
performance of Gray-Nicolls bats is ensured.
