The 2G Flicx Pitch arrives in Australia

The 2G Flicx Pitch is now available in Australia and the surrounding region ahead of the new season. This is the first time that the new surface has been sold here following its successful launch last year in the UK where it is manufactured by Flicx UK.

The 2G Flicx Pitch is a hugely versatile product with a number of possible applications to provide cricket facility solutions for clubs and schools. It can be used both indoors and out and for both senior and junior cricket with a soft or hard ball. Popular applications include ….

  • Converting a field into a cricket pitch
  • Converting an artificial such as a rubbercrumb or astroturf into a cricket pitch
  • To increase your junior capacity
  • Beach Cricket
  • Indoor Cricket or generally to take cricket to places it has never been played before.

The 2G Flicx Pitches simple “roll out, roll up” concept means its portable and doesn’t damage the under-surface. Some clubs use the Flicx Pitch to avoid strain on their main square whilst others leave it down for the whole season and allow grass to grow through the tiles.

Young cricketers can improve their bowling and batting techniques with our special coaching designs whilst logo’s can also be added which is a great option for club sponsors. The Flicx Pitch is great value for money and for all new customers in Australia we have a special 2G launch offer which means that the price includes delivery to your closest port. Flicx UK can also provide a quote and assist with delivery to your club on request too. Why not take a look around our main website for lots more details on our products and various case studies from existing customers all around the world alternatively REQUEST A QUOTE using our simple online form.

Pativia Solomua from Samoa wins a Flicx Batting End

Flicx UK would like to congratulate Pativia Solomua from Samoa whose entry was successful in the recent ICC EAP competition, to win a Batting End for her community. Pativia’s inspiration story ” Finding the Edge” won by a small margin over Moce Island, Fiji who were second with their entry “Selected to go oversea’s”

Pativia’s story tells of how cricket “brought her back from a life of hopelessness” after the death of her mother and how she has gone onto represent the Samoan national side, before more recently coaching her son and daughter to international success. The competition really showed the passion that our finalist nations Samoa, Fiji and Vanautu have for the game – which also be seen in the video put together for the competition by Adam Cassidy, Regional Project Officer at ICC EAP. Flicx would like to thank Adam and all the finalists for their support in promoting the competition to their networks.

The Flicx pitch was originally developed to take the game to places where it has not been played before, so it’s a great way to create cricketing venues which can in turn get more people playing the sport particularly in countries where cricket is still developing or the climate makes maintaining a wicket more challenging. As well as match pitches, we have a range of coaching products so for any enquiries from the EAP region please contact Paul at Flicx Australia on paul@flicx.com.
