Who makes Ellie Johnston’s Cricket Bats?
Bat maker Mark White in Adelaide has made some of Ellie’s most recent cricket bats.In fact, Ellie recently flew in from Queensland for a weekend just to get one hand crafted in front of her. She really enjoyed the experience of getting a bat personally tailored to her specifications.
Ellie was able to pick up the bat during the process, and judge the feel and pickup for herself, and provide feedback to the bat maker about the handle shape, the pick up and where more wood needed to come off to enhance the pickup and keep a large full bat.
