ABOUT FLICX

The 2G Flicx Pitch is the world’s most portable versatile cricket pitch solution for schools, clubs and back yards!

When founder Richard Beghin realised there weren’t enough facilities for the increasingly popular sport of cricket, especially in South Africa, he founded Flicx.

He wanted to help make South Africa a better country to live in, and his passion for his country and his love of cricket led him to develop the Flicx Cricket Pitch. In August 1997, he rolled out the first one at Telkom Country Club in Pretoria, South Africa.

In 1999, after creating a successful business in South Africa, Richard launched Flicx Cricket Pitches into the UK with a tremendous response as the pitches could be used to develop cricket in urban areas whilst the ICC ordered a number of Flicx Pitches for the development of grass roots cricket around the world. Flicx UK was formed in 2001 at its Hinton headquarters and and is now a well-recognised and respected name in cricketing circles, with a growing reputation in other sports too.

In 2014 we launched our second generation, 2G Flicx Pitch which is now manufactured in the UK and is a new softer surface with improved grip and playing performance.

Unlike its predecessor, the 2G Flicx pitches can be made bespoke to order with the colours and branding of your choice and also comes with an expanded product range featuring the colourful new skills pitch, innovative Eagle-eyed pitch and a multi age pitch (MAP).

These new designs aid the coaching of young players maintaining Richard’s belief that we can teach children at all levels, through sport, that life is about team work, individual skills and the will to win and not about selfishness, greed and individualism that they will then have a wonderful opportunity for a better way of life.

HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF THE 2G FLICX PITCH

Flicx is built on our passion for sport and overcoming barriers to participation…​

We are proud to have taken cricket to some incredible places where cricket has not been played before

The original Flicx Pitch was designed in South Africa back in 1997 at the end of the apartheid era. Richard Beghin wanted a way to create MORE OPPORTUNITIES for young South Africans to play cricket and developed a roll out, plastic pitch solution that could CONVERT FIELDS into cricket pitches.

The idea immediately attracted interested to support cricket development projects in the UK and the company moved its head office. The Flicx Pitch became VERY POPULAR GLOBALLY due to its cost effectiveness, portability and versatility as well as performance, producing a CONSISTENT BOUNCE in places that previously were not able to host cricket.

 

Skills Batting End

In 2015, the 2G Flicx Pitch was created and this product is now manufactured solely in the UK. The new tile is SOFTER and easier to roll out whilst it GRIPS the under surface even more so than the original. The new surface itself produces a better ball bounce whilst SEAM AND SPIN performance is improved. It provides the bowler with more TRACTION and thus the ball does not “skid” through as it did with the original design…

The new 2G Flicx Pitch can be rolled out on many different surfaces and will provide a suitable bounce, whereas the original surface was only suitable for outdoor purposes. It is therefore far more UNIVERSAL and can be used both indoors and outdoors. In addition, it’s easier and softer to roll out and is available in BRIGHTER COLOURS and NEW DESIGNS with the option to brand up your pitch with a sponsor logo.

The 2G product is now UK made and therefore we have been able to reduce lead times considerably whilst both surfaces were independently TESTED by the leading UK ports surfaces laboratory (Labosport UK) where the new 2G surface came out far superior in terms of its performance with reduced slip and improved ball bounce.

“We had a great weekend in Rotorua watching the young junior cricketers play on the 2G Flicx match pitch. It was great to watch such amazing young talent play. The 2G Flicx Pitch performed extremely well and the young cricketers and their families watched as they played under the lights, which is a once in a lifetime experience.

“The experience we’ve got from Flicx has been really good. The great thing about the pitch is that you literally roll it up and move it to a new area. It’s very easy to do. It’s the sort of thing, as a parent, that you can leave your kids comfortably playing on their own. You’re not going to get a ball up around your head or ankles.”

“Batsmen like playing on the 2G Flicx Pitch wickets as they produce even bounce and good pace which has increased the level of competitiveness in our matches and the ball comes onto the bat nicely so shots like drives can be executed in confidence. We are very satisfied with how the 2G Flicx Pitches are working for us”.

“I see big potential for Flicx in India and other countries where new facilities need to be created in a cost effective way. We are really happy with how our pitches stationed across Rajasthan are performing and think there will be a huge appetite for this roll out concept, in other states too. We are happy to help more people play cricket on a surface which performs really well in subcontinent conditions and it really gives our young players the best possible start to their cricketing journeys”.

“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”

The portability of the Flicx Pitch negated the issue of lack of space allowing the pitch to be put down on existing soccer and baseball fields which are currently more popular sports in Colombia. The pitch has provided the opportunity for cricket to flourish in Colombia as well as create the awareness it has needed to grow.

“The 2G Flicx cricket pitch helped us tremendously with our pop-up cricket events as we are able to take the game of cricket anywhere. The upgraded 2G surface provides such good pace and bounce even in areas that you would never be able to play cricket usually while the colour coded tiles in the 2G Flicx skills pitch help aspiring cricketers to focus on their areas when bowling and batting. It also makes the game look more fun and exciting”

“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”

“Our 2G Flicx Pitch has performed extremely really well so far and we have already used it on four different surfaces around the city. On grass the bounce was excellent and then on three differing artificial surfaces again we are very happy as the mat settled down nicely and quickly moulded to the under surface ahead of matches and training”

“With restricted access to the club’s indoor facilities, the Flicx Pitch has been a complete success and a genuine alternative hosting cricket on a local hockey astro under the floodlights. It has enabled our junior section to continue playing into the autumn and winter uninterrupted providing good grip and a responsive, hard wearing surface for a good bounce”

“In the summer of last year, we purchased two more Flicx pitches and have spread them around the country hosting our adult leagues. You cannot 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”

“With no groundsman or expertise to prepare grass wickets, a 2G Flicx Pitch made a lot of sense for us and absolutely transformed the standard of cricket that we could teach. We now also play matches against other schools whilst our better cricketers no longer have to play shots on a makeshift, bobbly football pitch.”
