What’s the difference between the 2G Flicx Skills Pitch and 2G Flicx Eagle-eyed Pitch???

The 2G Flicx Pitch is the ultimate cricket match pitch but did you know you can also use this versatile surface as a coaching aid to develop the batting and bowing skills of younger players??

2G Eagle Eyed Pitch

2G Eagle Eyed Pitch

Flicx have developed two coaching pitch designs with bright colours and targets. Choose from either the 2G Flicx Skills pitch or the 2G Flicx Eagle eyed pitch and roll it out on your outfield, in the nets, on top of another synthetic surface or convert a grass field or similar into a cricket training facility.

The Eagle eyed pitch is great for beginners … coloured sections replicate those seen on TV which is both fun and inspiring. At a basic skill level, the coloured tiles are used to develop the ability to bowl at different lengths – with good, short, full and yorker lengths marked out. These visual cues help players focus their deliveries and achieve consistency.

The Skills pitch is the next stage up in a player’s development with the targets assisting with both line and length. Coaches can encourage bowling to the off side or leg side at different lengths whilst batsmen will be able to develop decision making skills and shot selection based on where the ball is pitched.

These coaching designs are available in various lengths and as either a full pitch size or a batting end. Full pitches can be easily split into two to host two smaller mini games which is a great way add fun and challenge to your cricket training and offers great versatility and value for money for clubs and schools.

Tammy is a highly-rated wicketkeeper-batter who helped Kent to the LV= County Championship title in 2009 – she hit 136 opening against Surrey – having featured for the England Academy side against an ICC Europe XI in August. Her performances earned her a call-up to the England senior side for the West Indies tour later that year and more recently in 2013 she received her first test cap as England Women beat the Aussies to win the Ashes.

The other side to the Flicx business is the Flicx Pitch – an amazing roll out, portable pitch which allows you to transform any surface into a cricketing venue. We work closely with the ICC to help provide a platform to develop cricket in emerging markets and recently held a competition looking for inspirational stories of  “How Cricket changed has changed my life” … The response was fantastic with countries promoting their entries using social media with Israel victorious with their Cricket4Peace entry.

In the UK the pitches have seen a surge in popularity and they are  commonly rolled into the ground for a more permanent, cost effective crease as well as our smaller coaching and batting ends used in training and a home academy– and it’s not too late to get yours installed for the start of the season… Contact gary@flicx.com for a quote or again use your local cricket retailer.
