History of Slazenger
The company was found in 1888 by two brothers Ralph and Albert Slazenger, the brothers very early on had representatives who were selling their high quality equipment for many different sports internationally.
Slazenger is of course the tennis ball of choice at Wimbledon. This was begun in the year 1902. 100 years later in the year 2002, Slazenger cricket bats were being used by Australian Michael Clarke and then English One Day International captain Paul Collingwood.
The fact that Slazenger sporting equipment is used in such a wide array of sports is testament to the fact that there is high quality in every sporting product that they make and the same definitely rings true for their cricket bats.
On the cricket side of things, soon after opening a factory in Australia, the greatest batsman of all time, Sir Donald Bradman signed a contract to use a Slazenger made bat.
