The 2017 Lord's Bat Making Experience.

Enjoy this unique experience at Lords - The Home of Cricket on Saturday, 11th March 2017.

You can select your bespoke, made to order bat here with prices ranging from £200.00 for a junior Player Quality up to £400.00 for a senior version of our Player Quality Special Edition bat.

With this exclusive offer from Lord's you will have a hand in the design of your own, personalised cricket bat and watch a live demonstration of how cricket bats are made from a Gray Nicolls Master Bat Maker.

- Your bat of choice will be crafted from the high quality willow of your choice.
- Choose from a selection of the established Gray Nicolls bat profiles.
- All emblazoned with the sticker package of your choice.

Each overall Experience Day includes your bat of choice and places for two people.
Your itinerary is as follows:

- A special 'behind the scenes' tour of Lord's Cricket Ground.
- A visit to the famous MCC Museum where you'll see numerous artifacts and memorabilia from the past - not forgetting the actual Ashes Urn - including an opportunity to examine and hold bats used by some of the most famous batsmen to have played the game.
- Refreshments at an informal question and answer session with the Gray Nicolls' Master bat maker.
- A demonstration by a master craftsman as he creates a bat from the finest English Willow.
- Receive your customised bat in time for the 2017 cricket season, after it is professionally finished at Gray Nicolls' HQ in Robertsbridge in Sussex.

Start times for Lord's Tour and Bat Making Experience are at 9.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm on the day and each tour group is limited to 16 experiences (up to 32 people).

Each Experience is valid for two people (the recipient of the bat and a guest) and all juniors (those aged less than 18 years) must be accompanied by an adult.

When checking out your order please ensure that you have selected the correct tour start time and bat package before you proceed to pay.

It is important that you read through the information contained in the Terms and Conditions document featured on this page and on receipt of your order we will send you a written confirmation. (Selected times on a second day - Sunday, 12th March - will be made available if demand outstrips availability on the Saturday.)

All top coaches agree with suppliers and manufacturers that choosing the correct size bat is vital for the proper technical development of young cricketers. It is important that the bat is not too long and more importantly not too heavy to hinder correct stroke play and good technique.
