In this content collaboration with Serious Cricket, we’ll look at the challenges and opportunities with cricket teamwear.
A quick Google reveals lots of cricket teamwear suppliers for clubs. On the surface, that’s good news. Except choice can be baffling and takes up a mountain of time.
Ultimately, your club committee will make its decision based on a few factors – which we’ll look at below.
I’ll also explain why Serious Cricket Teamwear are well worth talking to when it’s time for a cricket clothing upgrade.
Reliability is everything. All clubs place their trust in cricket teamwear suppliers from the initial order to when their glow-in-the-dark T20 kit is earmarked to arrive.
When the delivery date comes: is it sitting in a shipping container in the Indian Ocean or already in the UK ready to make its way to your club?
With Serious Cricket, they are uniquely placed to deliver clubs their whole order on time, every time.
They make, embroider and print the garments themselves in the UK. Serious Cricket teamwear can be trusted because they have full control over the whole process.
That is a big deal and not something many companies can offer – especially if they bolt-on teamwear where they have to outsource jobs because they’re not specialists.
Serious Cricket versus global cricket brands
I understand wearing adidas, New Balance or whoever the England team happens to be sponsored by is enticing.
Kids and adults want to look and dress like their heroes.
But for cricket clubs, that has the potential to become difficult. Those global cricket brands have their focus on the professional game; not your village club in Division 3 Ebor of the Yorkshire Premier League North.
So, whichever retailer you pick, introduces an extra layer to source your whites or jumper. That could add cost and complication.
Choosing Serious Cricket avoids that. Ok, so they’re not adidas or New Balance but on the flip side, they do supply 1,000+ UK sports clubs with teamwear.
That huge level of relevant trust should be more than enough reassurance that they absolutely know grassroots sport.
3D Kit Builder & No Minimum orders
Serious Cricket offers clubs a 3D Kit Builder on their website. Create your own designs for the exact look you’re going for including their sponsors.
Choose from a range of styles, pick colours, upload logos and see your new identity come together.
If you opt for a completely bespoke kit then it can be designed in-house and delivered in 3-4 weeks.
They also do top-up orders afterwards with no minimum quantity. Perfect for that late signing who wants to look the part but the season is only weeks away. Serious Cricket can do that in just 5-7 working days.
Cricket clothing online shop
Naturally, your cricket club needs a free online shop. It allows individual players to get their own items as and when they need to. It takes the cricket club out of the equation and reduces admin.
Serious Cricket have a very popular platform for cricket team stores and it’s quick for clubs to get started.
As cricketers and coaches themselves, they understand volunteers want the process of buying cricket teamwear to be as painless as possible.
Register your team, upload logos, preview your shop and buy your kit.
As an extra incentive, if your cricket club decides to go ahead with a teamwear order through Serious Cricket, you’ll receive 2 x sets of stumps with club colours and logo!
*This will be redeemed once the club reaches £350 online spend.
Just fill in your details here and you’ll be contacted to discuss what your club needs.
