The game of Bat and Trap is an ancient relative of Cricket, still popular in Kent and an interesting game for schools looking for something new to try. The same equipment could also be used for playing another traditional game, "Knur and Spell", that will go down well at a village fetes or school fair.
This is a solid, robust version of this great game, made to withstand the rigours of league use. Not only is our trap practical, we believe it is also the most beautiful example of such equipment that has ever been made.
Both the trap and the bat are hand-made by an English craftsman in Oak hardwood which is the hardest wood that we can obtain at a sensible cost. The Trap design is based on an old Kent League Trap possessed by the owner of Masters Traditional Games.
Occasionally, you will see inferior Traps for sale locally or on the Internet. Before buying an alternative, check it against some of the following features of our trap:
Our Bat is nominally 5.5 inches wide and conforms to all known Bat and Trap league requirements, as does our Trap. The balls are hard rubber lacrosse balls which are the best balls for Bat and Trap that we know of.
