If your club or school is looking for the Flicx Pitch in Australia as a way to grow its cricket programme or if you need to create additional cricket spaces by converting grass spaces or artificial pitches into cricketing venues then the 2G Flicx Pitch is now available and is getting great feedback from clubs, associations and schools using the product. The 2G Flicx Pitch is a problem solver in terms of creating additional capacity and also with it being a portable, temporary, roll out cricket wicket, you can move it to different venues both outdoors and indoors and it is suitable for junior and senior cricket, hard ball or soft ball. Here are 5 questions on the products performance and applications from customers in Australia with names removed which you might find useful …
1.Will 2G Flicx pitch work on top of turf centre wicket for our juniors on a Friday night thereby protecting the turf for our seniors on the Saturday (xxxx xxxxx, Cricket Club S.A)
The 2G Flicx pitch is a versatile portable roll out wicket that can be used on various surfaces to create or add additional cricket facilities including grass and turf blocks, this will allow you to offer more junior cricket matches without the worry of wearing out the turf centre for your seniors
2. We have major ground shortages for cricket, can the 2G Flicx pitch be rolled out straight on grass without needing to lay a concrete base to facilitate matches (xxxx xxxxx, Cricket Club, Perth)
Grass open areas, parks, reservations, football and soccer fields can all be converted into cricket match and practise facilities using the 2G Flicx pitch, it is important to identify a flat area and cut the grass short for optimum performance, there is no need to have a concrete base as the pitch can be rolled out directly on top of grass.
3. How does the 2G Flicx Pitch work?? (xxxxx xxxxx, W.A)
The 2G Flicx pitch is a portable roll out wicket that can be used on various surfaces to create cricket facilities for both match and practise. Each match pitch comes delivered as 2 half pitch batting ends that easily clip and zip together in the middle to roll out into your match ready wicket, after matches it is simple to unzip back into 2 half pitch batting ends for easy transportation and storage, these batting ends can also be used for junior matches bowling from one end.
4. What sizes are available, can various stages be played on 1 pitch? (xxxxx xxxxx, Victoria)
The 2G Flicx pitch is available in various sizes for matches including 20.12m, 18m, 16m and 14m depending on your needs, our new 2G Flicx (Multi-Age-Pitch) has integrated creases for all 3 stages incorporated into 1 pitch making it easy to host your matches across all 3 stages on 1 easy to use very low maintenance pitch.
5. I am interested in a portable pitch for juniors and seniors that can be used on synthetic ovals (xxxxxx, xxxx College, Melbourne)
Synthetic ovals and sports fields can now be converted into cricket facilities using the 2G Flicx match pitch, in our tests we have found that on deep rubber crumb synthetics the pitch may need a rubber pad to stabilize the rubber crumb and give better bounce or soft cricket balls need to be used to provide you with realistic bounce, on newer synthetic fields that have a combination of sand/organic fill this is not necessary as the base is more compact and firm allowing the pitch to work effectively. Hockey astro fields can also be used and provides a great surface for the pitch. The recent upgrades and developments on the 2G Flicx pitch make it possible to use the 2G Flicx pitch for juniors and some senior teams especially those teams playing in lower leagues.
