Here at B3, we are recognised for having our industry's most advanced, consistent bat-making process. Walking out to bat with a cricket bat that suits you in every aspect and a bat you trust will fill you with confidence at the crease. Combining the two will result in one thing ….. MORE RUNS!

Every cricket bat we make from the very first to the last out of the factory has its unique serial number. That serial number is the DNA of that bat and provides all the information we need to make the exact same bat again. That repeatable consistency, quality and performance are the key reasons our customers, from club players to some of the top professional players in the world, love their B3.

We love to welcome cricketers to our Nottinghamshire factory so they can see first-hand how we combine advanced tech and old traditional craftsmanship to produce our beautiful bats.

On Saturday I took a little drive into Birmingham to pick out a new cricket bat for the season (the 20 mile drive took me nearly two hours!) and it got me thinking......

I'm just a club cricketer but I'm very picky. I couldn't care less about the brand, all I'm bothered about is the feel of the bat, the way it picks up, is the sweet spot generous and slightly low on the blade as we tend to play on slow decks in Warwickshire.

I went to three different bat makers in Birmingham, the first place only had 10 bats to look at, none felt right, so onto the next place. It said it was open, but I turned up and it was shut, so third time was the charm. I met Abid at A7 Cricket, and I was with him for nearly two hours, I picked up at least 50 blades before falling in love with one particular bit of wood.

When I was younger and a better player I would get bats for free but now I'm older and sh*tter, I don't have that luxury. If I'm to spend £300+ on willow, I'm not doing this online and risk getting something that doesn't feel right.

In February, March & April why don't bat makers go on the road in a van and book appointments with clubs and players? If a bat maker booked in an appointment at my club (Kenilworth CC) at preseason training they would have access to 40 senior players and over 100 junior players, I have no doubt they would sell a good number of blades in one hit. Go one step further, could appointments be booked in for at home visits and the van is essentially a showroom? The batmaker could do visits in the evenings and weekends when customers are actually available..

Maker&Son do this with sofa's coming directly to your door and it works.

This is hardly the most innovative idea but I've never heard of a bat maker doing this, yes there would be overheads but if you used a free booking software tool such as Calendly or Square then plugged it into your website and socials you're off. The bat maker then just needs to market effectively to their local audience and do outbound calls/emails with local clubs, you could even offer the club a group discount if they purchase a minimum order of bats.

Anyways, this is a ramble but for all the cricket badgers out there, would you use this type of service....... 🤔

Workout tops and running tops that eliminate odour. No Timid Souls has solved the problem of smelly sportswear.

Independent lab tests confirmed that our ‘Glide360’ tops eliminate more than 99% of odour-causing bacteria. They start fighting odour during a sweaty workout or run, and they keep at it afterwards until odour is eliminated altogether.

Anti-microbial silver technology is embedded in our Glide360 tops and guaranteed to work for the life of the garments.

What does that mean for our customers? No two bodies or workouts are the same, but it’s common to get 5 sweaty workouts or 10 days of everyday wear from a Glide360 top without odour or washing.

Eventually, some salts and oils from our bodies will build up a little on the Glide360 tops and they’ll benefit from a wash so they’re ready to go again.

We’re committed to the pursuit of innovations that help solve problems for our customers. And that goes beyond the sports science, materials science and design expertise that make our products feel fantastic, work exceptionally well and look great.

From innovations that redefine sustainable sportswear, to unique crowdfunding solutions that boost athlete incomes, we're just getting started.

If you want to know more about our ground-breaking innovations, you can subscribe to or follow No Timid Souls on LinkedIn and Instagram. We’re on an exciting adventure, and we’d love you to join us!

You don't have to be the smartest person on the planet to understand i love cricket. It has given me everything and continues to be my number 1 passion.

This season, 2Reds Apparel started a three year partnership with the South Coast District Cricket Association.

The South Coast is a place that I hold close to my heart and a place I have always called home. My journey started in a little town called Jamberoo. We had next to nothing, but we had everything when it came to sport. South Coast cricket gave me an opportunity to showcase my skills at a representative level and I'll always be grateful. I can still remember the day I was presented my playing cap.

As you can tell, our connection with the south coast at 2Reds Apparel runs very deep. We are looking forward to the next three years and beyond. Nothing but the best for the athletes looking to better themselves on and off the field. We can't wait to give these players the opportunity to feel those amazing emotions when they put the 2Reds Apparel kit on for the first time, just like I did so many years ago.

Keep striving to be better! 💯💯💯❤️💯💯💯💯💯

During October 2023 all custom made butterfly English willow cricket bats are $599.

Butterfly English willow makes an outstanding cricket bat that is very durable and pings very well. The Butterfly name comes from the stain on the face of the cricket bat that is caused from branch pruning whilst the tree is growing over approximately 15 years.

It looks like a butterfly in shape and it actually strengthens all of the willow surrounding it. It adds character and depth to the willow which contributes to its unique appearance.

At Cooper Cricket we have been using butterfly English willow for many years now and we have had many players in many grades using it with outstanding results. It also makes for a great training bat as it is very durable and affordable.

The October 2023 discount represents a $200 saving from our regular price of $799.
