When founder Richard Beghin realised there weren’t enough facilities for the increasingly-popular sport of cricket in South Africa, he developed the Flicx Cricket Pitch and in August 1997 the first one was rolled out at Telkom Country Club in Pretoria.
In 1999, after creating a successful business in South Africa, Richard launched Flicx UK at the England and Wales Cricket coaching conference where his so called “lego” pitch was met with a tremendous response with the ECB ordering 800 for grassroots cricket in the UK while the ICC went on to order Flicx Pitches for the development of the sport all around the world. Flicx has grown to being a well-recognised and respected name in cricketing circles, with our pitches, batting ends and throwdowns being purchased by many clubs and schools and even by individuals wanting to transform their garden into a cricket pitch!!
Now, new for the 2014 season, we present the 2G Flicx Pitch which is a new playing surface with improved grip and playing performance. Also unlike its predecessor, the 2G Flicx pitches can be bespoked and made to order with the colours and branding of your choice and also comes with an expanded product range which features a new Skills pitch and an innovative Hawkeye pitch. Both of these new designs aid the coaching of young players maintaining Richard’s belief is that if we can teach children at all levels, through sport, that life is about team work, individual skills and the will to win and not about selfishness, greed and individualism that they will have a wonderful opportunity for a better way of life.
