The largest retailer of cricket equipment of all kinds is
the Kingsgrove Sports Centre. They specialise in cricket
equipment from bats, protective equipment, gloves, balls
to more esoteric things like slips fielding cradles, nets,
cricket bags. If Kingsgrove can't provide it, it probably
They can ship anywhere in the world and they have an
on-line e-market site at
They ship a considerable amount of equipment to the USA.
If this newsgroup ever does get a FAQ this question must

vendors at the USA Cricket Association's website
Click the link marked "Equipment" on the left.
There are links to most major UK equipment suppliers'
web sites on the Cricket Links page of my site
I haven't got experience of the quality of any of these
companies' mail order services but I have brought a lot
of kit 'over the counter' from Vee-Kay Sports over the
past 20-odd years and have been very satisfied.
A variety of bats, balls, bags, books, magazines, pads,
bags and almost anything you'd want to do with cricket.
Almost all products can be delivered to your door.
Check the prices out!!!
The best idea is to go to a sports store, try out the
equipment you want and then buy online. It gets delivered
to your door, and it costs less. I generally take a risk
and just buy the equipment anyway, so it's worth a go.
