About Us

New Factory and Cricket Academy for B3 Cricket!

 

We are very pleased to announce that from December 1st 2016 we will be moving to a new factory and showroom in nearby Hucknall.

 

The move is a major project but one which will take B3 to the next level of its development1

 

The new premises is set within the old Corman’s textile factory on Bolsover Street in Hucknall. We’ve secured a long term lease on the warehouse beneath the offices which are accessed via a driveway to the left hand side of the main building.

 

We are very excited because the new place will enable us to build our very own indoor cricket net from which we plan to run our own “academy” to coach and develop local players. This will also enable customers to try our bats and gear. The plan is to get the best surface, netting and lighting to ensure this is a great facility!

 

The new address is:

Mancor House

Bolsover Street

Hucknall

Nottingham

NG15 7TZ

 

Our telephone number will remain the same +44 (0) 115 977 0198  If you have trouble getting through then please email: enquiries@b3cricket.com and one of us will pick that up and respond promptly.

 

Have a look at the following video to see the new premises for yourself:

 

 

 

As you can see, the move is not a simple project and we have a lot of work to do to get the factory operational. Over the next few weeks we will be building new offices, showroom and stores areas.

 

Business As Usual:

The first few days of December will be a bit manic but we hope to be fully operational with a showroom set up by Monday December 5th. If you’re planning a visit then please see the map on our website or download the PDF at the bottom of this article.

 

Finally, this is a big step forward for B3 as a cricket brand. We want to show the world that we are passionate about cricket and this new place will enable us to put something back into the game!

 

Thank you for your support over the first 4 years and here’s to a bright cricketing future!

 

Regards

 

Team B3 (Blathers, Streaky, Russ, Gav, Paul, Neil, Tom and David).
