From the very top model as used exclusively in UK Test Matches to the junior model used in schools cricket, the Dukes dedication to quality is relentless which is why Flicx UK have officially approved them for use on new 2G Flicx Pitches.
The origins of DUKES cricket ball making can be traced back to the year 1760 when production started in the Tonbridge area of Kent. The skills have been refined and handed down through the generations. The same meticulous care and attention is paid to all the traditional processes in addition to new technology to ensure that products of the highest standard are made available for the game at all levels today with only the very best raw materials are used to protect the brand’s reputation for top quality.
DUKES is responding to the demands of the modern game by using new advanced technology to produce long lasting surface white and brightly coloured cricket balls for Limited Overs cricket and possible “Day/Night” Test Matches. Another major breakthrough is an exclusive process to ensure very good shape retention whilst retaining the right “feel” on the bat.
Speaking about the first cricket ball to be officially recommended for use with a new 2G Flicx Pitch managing director Richard Beghin said ” We have been using the Dukes ball for many years with Flicx Pitches. The ball has a hard varnish and a quality finish which means it performs exceptionally well and is very durable and so its great to make this partnership official and add the Flicx branding. Whilst this is an approved ball, other cricket balls can of course be used on a Flicx Pitch”.
