Here is an introduction to each of Cricket Yorkshire’s commercial partners for 2023.

Serious Cricket is a leading name in cricket equipment and teamwear, supplying 1,000+ clubs. That trust partly comes from the fact they make, embroider and print the garments themselves in the UK. It means the whole design process from concept to finished kit is in-house and able to be done quickly and confidently.
The cricket retailer has an impressive stock of bats, equipment and clothing from all the major brands for cricketers to buy.
OFFER: For clubs buying teamwear, we have an offer where you get 2 x sets of personalized cricket stumps worth £140 – if your club signs up for Serious Cricket Teamwear via this website.
