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
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.
The eagerly anticipated launch of the new 2G Flicx Pitch range took place on Saturday at Headingley as part of the series of Cricket Club Expo events.

Clubs at the event were clearly impressed with the new surface which has many benefits including improved ball bounce and better seam and spin performance versus its predecessor. In addition the 2G range has 2 new designs, the 2G Flicx Skills pitch and the 2G Eagle-eyed pitch which are great coaching aids with bright colours and markings helping players bowl a more consistent line and length whilst supporting batting decision making.
Managing Director Richard Beghin outlined some of the applications of the new 2G Flicx Pitch, which is now UK made and in stock at Flicx UK for immediate delivery ahead of the new season. “The softer nature of the 2G product means that we believe it is the perfect surface solution for the indoor game. The pitch rolls out flat the bounce is very consistent which allows clubs to have a high standard of winter training. In addition it’s a great match surface for both juniors and seniors, and means any flat surface or sports field can be transformed into a cricketing venue as well being an instant solution to upgrade a worn synthetic surface”
