“The 2G Flicx Pitch will enable us to play cricket where we couldn’t before. It was easy to set up and gives a good playing surface for our students to practice and play matches on, increasing our participation greatly”.

“The kids absolutely loved playing on the 2G Flicx pitches with parents and families all wanting to take photos! If it wasn’t for the pitches our tour would not have been the success that it was and the team here at the Sixers will be utilising them further with our community events, clinics and for our Fan Day here at the SCG and throughout the season”

Fan, Activation and Community Manager, Sydney Sixers
“We take immense pride in providing the Beehive State with a pitch which enhances the scope of cricket in Utah to the next level. Our new pitch allows an even playing field for the batsman and bowlers, helps the youngsters develop their skills as well as provides a set-up for adults to hone their skills. We truly believe that the 2G Flicx is to play a catalyst for us as a club to reach one of our true goals and that is to create opportunities for more people to enjoy the global game!!”
“We chose the 2G Flicx Pitch because it’s a portable solution and means Novel Sports can set up a cricket experience centre at various locations for all to enjoy. We have already found that kids are very motivated to play on artificial surfaces such as the Flicx Pitch as it offers a good bounce and spin”

“The versatility of this product allows Middlesex Cricket to take the game to communities where there is poor or low provision of cricket pitches, it also allows us to increase playing sites in London where green space is in high demand and unfortunately reducing! Not only does the 2G Flicx system provide a good playing surface and focal point for participants, it’s also a great coaching aid for beginners and experienced players alike. We are encouraged and delighted by the positive response from our clubs who have purchased the pitches to ease pressure on existing fine turf and non-turf pitches in the view of increasing participation for all in the County.”
“In the summer of last year, we purchased two more Flicx pitches and have spread them around the country hosting our adult leagues. You can not put a price on what the Flicx pitch has done for cricket in Israel – it is without a doubt the best investment that we have made and without it, we would have no facilities”

“Flicx have created a cricket wicket more true than any other artificial any of us have played on. Favouring neither batsmen nor bowlers, this is an excellent piece of kit which will help youngsters develop their cricket and adults hone their skills – highly recommended for any club.

“Flicx UK are a very professional organisation to deal with, very flexible and always being willing to accommodate our specific needs. The Flicx 2G pitches themselves area great product that are a useful practice tool for both batters and bowlers in a range of different environments. They are also very flexible too and we plan to use them as a match surface for some of our younger age groups saving on the time and cost of pitch preparation
”It is really important for effective cricket coaching – especially for batting and bowling – that the training surface provides a consistent and good bounce. At our local sports hall we tried to use hard balls on a fibre mat laid on their sprung wooden floor, but it wasn’t successful as the ball didn’t bounce at all – it simply died on the surface. Our trial of the new 2G Flicx mat dealt successfully with this problem – the bounce using hard balls was good and trustworthy, comparable to an outdoor surface for both seam and spin bowling. The 2G Flicx mat is now allowing us to train much more effectively in the hall with both colts and seniors; we can now, for example, use the bowling machine there for the first time.
The Flicx Cricket Pitch is ideal for introductory level cricket in countries that do not have existing pitches or the skills and resource to develop pitches. Due to the versatility of the Flicx cricket pitch it makes use of limited facilities at a minimum cost. It is an innovative option for our member countries across Europe to transform any existing sports field into a cricket playing facility.
Our new Flicx was superb, (thank you very much for eveyone´s efforts in getting it to us so promptly), we would not have done the competition without it and offered a splendid true and even playing surface, allowing some outstanding performances with both bat and ball.
“The Flicx Pitch has revolutionised access to the game for young boys and girls. Cricket is now possible in limited spaces such as school playgrounds, local parks and leisure centres where, before, it could not have been played without designated pitch areas. In addition, it allows additional training facilities at clubs and for pre-season games”.

The cricketers themselves have been impressed with the true bounce of the pitch and the fact that all bowlers can be confident of their delivery, from spin to seam. From a development point of view, young cricketers (especially bowlers) can be coached in correct techniques – and the true bounce means that their game is predictable and will hold their interest. We have found that the Flicx pitch is equally suitable for both soft and hard balls.
