Fantail exists to produce the tools to help you unlock your potential and take your game to the next level whether that’s on the sports field, work, school or day to day life.
We’re a business that strives to create high-quality cricket gear, clothing & apparel from premium materials
We love what we do. A place designed to celebrate our customers & hear their stories to create products that mould around you
In 2015 Fantail was founded by Blake Shattock to express his passion for handcrafting and repairing cricket bats out of his garage at home.
Since then the business has grown to sell Fantail products to all continents around the world. With support coming from over 200,000 highly engaged social media followers
Our first workshop was a small garage in Auckland, New Zealand. There were always native birds flying around with the Fantail being one of them.
The Fantail is a native bird to New Zealand, but they can also be seen around the world. With their friendly and curious behaviour, we thought it was a natural choice to represent our brand.
