A bunch of Cricketers who played at WEPL and PREM 1 level, having a serious passion for cricket one day decided to change how cricket is played (especially batting) in England. We decided to design the right equipment for modern cricket at an affordable price using traditional techniques and values – this is how THE AB SPORTS was formed. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength.
Our aim is to be the UK Cricket’s Challenger Brand by delivering the best performing bats and other equipment to the market. Our carefully designed bats have been a huge success for many years in England, Australia, South Africa and India. We have many international players using our bat (UST) but we cannot advertise it due to their sponsorship commitment.
Our product is “BY Players FOR Players” who want to be different. Players who want to make their own rules and do things others won’t even try. Players who want to turn a game on its head. Players who have the courage to try something different. These are the sort of people we want to be using our stuff. A Cricket brand built on quality with a passion for success. This year everything changes. We’ve got huge plans, investment and ideas. Watch this space – The changing face of Cricket in England.

All our bats are hand -picked personally to cater to our UK customers to ensure that only the finest bats are selected and tested for performance, balance and pick up rather than looks.
We always try to displays actual photos of equipment on our website, so you can see what you are buying. However, sometimes when the branded (SS/SG/Spartan/New Balance etc.) equipment is not available in the stock, we use their advertisement pictures (provided by those brands) on our website. Having said that, we at AB Sports appreciate that it is very difficult to purchase accurately from the internet so before you order a bat, we can personally select few bats from our stock that meets your specs and will send you the photos of the bats we have selected, to ensure you are happy. We have been doing this for many years and that’s why we have so many repeat customers.
Our aim has always been to provide excellent customer service, the finest products, affordable prices and friendly advice.

Quality, service and innovation have always been the company’s hallmarks. Customers returning to buy our equipment, sending in their testimonials, recommending it to friends and family – speaks volume about their satisfaction with our quality and price. customers.
