Anyone for cricket?

Anyone for cricket? Yes please!!

 

I'm loving our brand new, fancy-schmansy Shot Cricket Bat. ShotClub is the ONLY place in the world making a shot cricket bat so I'm feeling quietly proud and a little smug!

 

We made the bat at the request of our lovely customer Donna who wanted to buy a present for her friends that was different.... she considered a Shot Ski but given that they're avid cricket fans, we decided to push the boat out and give making a Shot Cricket Bat a go! Initially I had thought that we would make a cricket bat from scratch but, on further investigation I soon realised that it would be timely, expensive and bloomin' awkward! Instead I found a really cool cricket bat from our local sports shop and decided to go ahead with that. I drilled two holes into the top of the bat so that it will hold the shot glasses securely. The bat was a little pale (I get that that is how cricket bats look!) but we decided to give it a vintage make-over and stain it with a dark oak finish.

 

We were then able to customise the bat with the UK and SA flags that Donna wanted on it. 

 

It's a brilliant variation of the traditional shot ski. The idea is the same, two people stand together holding the bat and one, two, three, down the shot together!
