Grays was founded in Cambridge by world rackets champion H.J. Gray in 1855 and have built a worldwide reputation for supplying quality sports equipment; notably for hockey, racquets and cricket (under the Gray-Nicolls brand).
The company has remained in family hands ever since and is now owned and controlled by 5th generation.
Well established as hockey stick manufacturers, Grays strengthened their position with the purchase of the famous hockey firm of Hazells in 1941 and invested in a new hockey manufacturing plant at their Cambridge factory. It was here that the foundations for Grays unique hockey reputation were laid.
The growing popularity of the shorter Indian heads led to the establishment of Grays Pakistan in 1965.
It was here that the world renowned Grays Karachi King with its instantly recognisable orange flash was established. Grays Pakistan floated on the Pakistan Stock Exchange in 1987 and has been one of Pakistan's most successful companies ever since.
Never content to rest on their laurels, with the introduction of composite materials, Grays were one of the first brands to launch a composite stick and now offer a complete range of both wood and composites.
Grays hockey expertise is reflected by their use on the pitch. From the Victorious Pakistan Team in the first ever Hockey World Cup to the Athens Olympics - Grays sticks have have been the choice of leading internationals for decades.
