Gray-Nicolls, one of the world’s leading cricket equipment manufacturers and official partner of ICC equipment since 2016, now also sponsors Brazilian athletes!

Our representatives, Renata Sousa and Luis Felipe Pinheiro, are the first athletes to be sponsored by the company in Brazil. And with many reasons: Renata is an important player in the Women’s Cricket Team, which is currently the South American Tricampeã team, and Luiz Felipe is a player in the Men’s Cricket Team and was captain of the Under 17 team, South American champion in Peru, in 2015.

Matt Featherstone, President of Cricket Brasil says: “We are proud to welcome Gray-Nicolls to the Cricket Brasil family. Partnerships with companies of both renown and trust in cricket help our country to develop on the right path with the highest quality. We hope to continue with the development of our projects in Brazil with the support of Gray-Niccols.”

Through ICC, Gray Nicolls also offers support for field equipment at official events and a collection of goods, in addition to equipment.


World Racquets champion HJ Gray founded the racket manufacturing company HJ Gray and Sons in Cambridge, England, in 1855. Later, the company started making cricket bats for Cambridge’s top players such as Ranjitsinjhi and Prince of Wales, and remains a family business. L. J. Nicolls started making tacos in 1876 at his workshop in Robertsbridge, East Sussex, where the company is still based today. These two reputable club makers merged in the 1940s to form Gray-Nicolls, and stars like England captain Wally Hammond and Australian Keith Miller soon started using Gray-Nicolls equipment.
