Unfortunately the costs of doing business have meant we have had to raise our prices a little in 2023.
Unlike many other brands, B3 Cricket actually make our own bats in our own factory and energy costs have more than trebled!
We are fortunate enough to get our prime English willow from JS Wrights and they have also passed on significant increased costs to ourselves. Again the cost of energy for the kilns is the main cause.
Another major cost increase is those attached to importing goods. Prices have increased on pads, gloves and bags. This is compounded by increased shipping costs which have more than doubled from the pre-pandemic prices.
On a positive note, we are still competitive on a like for like basis in terms of the highest quality UK made cricket bats and protective kit. One thing you can be sure of is that B3 customers will see no sacrifice or compromise in the quality of either our products or customer service.
Thank you for your understanding.
