Bellingham & Smith, playing with belief for 30 years

The Bellingham and Smith factory is situated in the small community of Thornhill, 50km’s outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Nestled amongst forested mountains, the factory’s tranquil setting creates the ideal atmosphere for our bat makers to meticulously craft bats from specially selected English Willow.

Master Batmakers

The Eastern Cape, birthplace of Nelson Mandela, has an extensive tradition of indigenous craftsmen creating high quality articles from wood. These same skills, tradition and sense of pride in their work are applied to the fascinating craft of cricket bat manufacture.

Our master batmakers combine an abiding love of cricket, with vast experience and the instinctive feel of a master craftsman. He is a master magician who can transform raw English willow wood into a finely honed instrument of great power.
