Serious Cricket Try Before You Buy 2017

Try Before You Buy 2017 at the Dummer Cricket Centre

Now we are well into the New Year and as the evenings are getting lighter cricketers start to focus their attention towards the new season, turn out their garden sheds to unearth their kit bags before booking some pre-season nets.

Anyone thinking about upgrading their cricket gear should pencil Saturday, March 25th (9am-2pm) into their diary. This year’s ‘test drive’ is taking place at the Dummer Cricket Centre, near Basingstoke, where we are offering the opportunity for cricketers to sample the latest cricket bats, pads, gloves and helmets.

The event continues to grow year on year and has proved popular with followers of the leading manufacturers and the high profile players that use them. 

Kookaburra, one of the more prominent manufacturers, is providing the services of current England and Hampshire CCC all rounder, Liam Dawson. The current international player will be on hand to assist cricketers with their choice of equipment as well as offering a few tips to improve their game. There will also be a meet and greet area set up on the day for anyone who would like to personally meet Liam with a professional photographer on hand to take photos. 

Michael Cook, Serious Cricket shop manager and equipment purchaser, said:

“Once again our Try Before You Buy day has continued to grow. Last year was our best attended so far and the feedback back from both the public and manufacturers was that this was a fantastic opportunity for all concerned. It's also great to have a current England international cricketer in Liam Dawson supporting the day.

Many cricketers come to our shop looking to upgrade or renew their equipment. Quite often they will be youngsters moving on from soft ball cricket keen to buy their first English willow bat to use against a hard ball. No matter what level of cricket you play, the try before you buy day offers our customers a more informed decision and gives them greater confidence in choosing the products we stock.”

You are cordially invited to attend the above event at the Dummer Cricket Centre, Dummer Down Farm, Basingstoke, RG25 2AR.
