skills that have been passed down through generations. Using these considerable skills, their bat-makers ensure that they get the best possible performance out of each cleft of the finest

English willow. Consequently, many of their cricket bats have received multiple awards from the leading cricket magazines. Let us take a look & see what are their top 5 cricket bats.

M&H HISTORY

In October 1987 Julian Millichamp and Jonathan Hall sent 100 clefts of willow, their faces pressed and handles fitted, to Perth. There they found enough space on a workbench in an existing sports goods repair shop to shape the pressed and fitted clefts into bats using Julian’s personal collection of antique tools; drawknives, spokeshaves, even a horses shin bone. The bats were sold directly to cricketers through Slater Gartrells sports shop in Midland, Perth. Millichamp and Hall were born.

The partners returned to the UK for the northern summer and started in the same modest fashion on a workbench in a backroom of Jonathan Hall’s home in Somerset. Then with the Ashes tour of 1989 came a significant breakthrough for the company. Word of the quality of Millichamp and Hall bats spread to the Australian test squad and before the end of the tour 11 of the 16 tourists were using Millichamp and Hall bats, albeit disguised with the labels of their better-known sponsors. In fact, by 1990, 27 of the top 40 Deloitte rated batsmen were doing the same. Remarkably, Millichamp and Hall never had to give away a single bat. Test players, most of whom hadn’t bought a bat since they were twelve or thirteen, were digging into their own pockets to buy the best. This enviable international reputation still remains today.

Both Julian Millichamp and Jonathan Hall have now moved on, but the company continues to thrive. Millichamp and Hall are now based in the Somerset County Cricket Ground where they strive to produce the finest handcrafted, bespoke cricket bats in the world.

#2 Millichamp & Hall Pro Cricket Bat

Millichamp and Hall’s PRO range is crafted using the finest professional grade willow with a large hitting area and exquisite balance. Our batmakers worked closely with professional cricketers to design and craft the ultimate profiles to suit the demanding needs of today’s game. Like all of our 2017 ranges, the PRO edition is available in two distinctive profiles; the Hybrid and Elite.

The PRO Hybrid, with its enormous profile and edges, is a favorite with our big-hitting pro’s, whilst the PRO Elite with its gravity-defying size to weight ratio, is a favorite amongst our top order professional who requires a lightweight blade with unrivaled power.
