About Us

Woodworm.tv is fast becoming the UK's go-to online cricket store for quality cricket bats, kit & equipment at the lowest possible, direct to player prices.

It all began back in September 2001 when Joe Sillett was hunting in his garage for a bat ahead of a Sunday match for his club side Brook in Surrey versus The Zombies. 

The only one he could find had a bad case of woodworm, and to repair the damage, Joe's father Bob carved out small curves towards the top of the bat, finishing it by hand and a Black and Decker power sander. 

In the match, using his oddly shaped bat, he scored 142 not out, and it was at that point Joe decided to found The Woodworm Cricket Company, with our now famous shaped bats.

Things started slowly with just over 200 bats sold in the first year. However by 2005 word had spread and this rocketed to over 15,000, with additional endorsement coming from big name players such as Flintoff and Pietersen.

Leap forward to today and not only do we have some of the finest domestic and international cricketers on our players list, we now complement our line-up of quality bats with a complete range of kit for both juniors and adults. 

Cricket is not only our business, it’s our passion. In addition to the high profile players that endorse our products our team also includes past and current regional players providing customer support and advice through to product sourcing and development.

If you too have a passion for the game join us at TeamWorm for exclusive offers, advance details of new products and all the latest team news.

Also be sure to check out our latest line-up of top quality adult and junior cricket gear.

Keep smashing it.
