Grove Cricket was founded in 2012 and has quickly earnt a reputation for producing exceptional equipment at affordable prices. Meulemans jumped at the opportunity to stock Grove’s equipment because their gear is designed by cricketers that love the game, and is made for cricketers that appreciate high quality and innovative designs.
Grove’s wide selection of cricket bats are handcrafted in Australia from hand-selected grade one English Willow. One of their top models is the Royale Makers Choice which has been expertly designed to deliver optimal performance at the crease. Sporting a sharp mid-profile, the Royale maintains power through the whole blade. The toe is finished square and the face very slightly convexed with very minimal concaving in the back. Its 18 piece handles are uniquely crafted from the highest quality cane providing subtle flex, ensuring maximum force with unrivalled feel. All Grove bats come with a slightly oval handle and their thickness is marginally thinner than average. This is proven to increase performance and grip. If you want an explosion in your hands, go with Grove.
Aside from their bats, Grove offers some of the best protective cricket gear available. If you’re looking for a new pair of gloves that are sure to last, then their Exclusive batting gloves are the right choice for you. The Exclusive’s ultra-lightweight, high-density foam promises international level protection. With super flex 37 splits for increased flexibility, its unique design is aimed to hug the shape of your hand and deliver extra comfort. To top it all off, the Exclusive has a premium sheep leather palm, adding grip to make sure you’re in full control of the bat. Meulemans also stocks inners from Grove. Their fingerless batting inners come with a cotton palm and a lycra backing to ensure you can keep smashing sixes for as long as you like.
To match your gloves, be sure to check out Grove’s range of batting pads. A best seller is the Makers Choice batting pads. Their rounded, lightweight, multi-sectioned high-density foam has strengthening cane rods for maximum shin and thigh protection. Boasting a reputation for one of the most comfortable pads on the market, it has a gel pocket in the knee with a Fibretec bolster insert combined with the Grove tri-folding knee protection system. The Makers Choice should be your top pick if you want protection and a tight fit for when you’re on the run. For those who are fed up with being corked in the leg by stray bowls, the grove exclusive thigh pad should also be on the top of your list.
Wicket keepers will be happy to know that Grove has much of their key protective gear sorted. The Makers Choice wicket-keeping gloves from Grove are as reliable as they come. Their kangaroo leather covering and flexible finger inserts will ensure you can stop anything and will drop nothing. For increased protection, Grove’s Exclusive keeping pads are a sure-fire safe bet. Rounded foam over the knee provides comfortability and protection while their slim, tight fit means that you can strap them on and trust that they will stay firm.
Once Grove has sorted you with new gear, you’re going to need a place to stash it all that also adequately protects it. For this, Grove has you covered with their range of cricket bags. A favourite is their Supreme wheel bag that is spacious enough to keep your bat, protective gear, balls and shoes protected, with some extra room for whatever you need.
