Cooper Cricket is an online store owned by Rod Grey based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. We specialise in fantastic cricket bats, high-quality protective gear & the ability to customise small or bulk gear for cricket clubs or special events.
To keep our prices competitive we are an online store only. We have a workshop to make & repair cricket bats in Virginia, Brisbane; however, it is a private workshop not open to the public. We are often out and about at games during the cricket season so customers can view our gear however given that most cricketers are busy at their day jobs, we are more than happy to come to you after hours to show you some gear or have a look at a bat that needs to be repaired.
We also cater for complete clubs or organisations that may need customised cricket gear for their upcoming season or events. All cricket gear can be customised & if you would like more information, please contact us here.
We pride ourselves on being a family-owned Australia small business & we guarantee that our gear will perform for you whether you are a junior, adult club cricketer or play at the highest level.
Cooper Cricket was started in 2011 in a back shed in Townsville at Rod Grey's house when refurbishing his son's cricket bat. Rod is a sign writer by profession and was lucky enough to learn his trade from a hugely talented Philip John. Throughout 20+ years of making, installing and designing signage you work with many different materials and discover several different techniques that apply well to cricket bat making. Over many years of playing cricket, you also have things go wrong with cricket bats so when in a regional centre it's not easy to access cricket bat repairs, so you figure out how to do it yourself.
Like many small businesses, they start in a home garage, or shed and Cooper Cricket was no different. In 2016 Cooper Cricket had moved into a small workshop in Garbutt, Townsville but in 2017 a move to Brisbane was happening so off they went. Brisbane is a great and challenging market with a lot of competition and a lot of choices to choose from. Now that Cooper Cricket fits into this landscape all we can & will do is provide excellent cricket gear with local support for cricketers not only in Brisbane but all around Australia.
