If your school is needing to accommodate extra demand or create extra space, wickets or facilities for new cricket teams at your school this academic year, take a look at how many primary and senior schools worldwide are turning to 2G Flicx Pitches to help them grow the game.
With many schools experiencing more demand for cricket including the rapid growth of the girls game, facilities are often a challenging element especially for those schools with no or insufficient numbers of maintained turf wickets. For schools without a specialist in-house grounds-person, the cost of creating a suitable playing surface has been a barrier to play but with Flicx, the worlds most versatile, portable roll out cricket wicket, there are so many ways which you can use the pitch to start new cricketing programmes or improve the quality of existing ones.
Schools are using 2G Flicx Pitches to accommodate extra demand (list not exhaustive)
- To convert grass football or rugby fields into cricket pitches in the summer. An suitable area is identified, the grass is cut very short and rolled if possible before the 2G Flicx Pitch is rolled out
- To convert a synthetic field/ astro/rubbercrumb/NTP into a cricketing venue. Just roll it out and play (NB – Some 4G synthetics are not compatible with Flicx Pitches)
- Rolled out on the playground
- In the nets – to either create additional batting areas or to go over worn or under performing astro nets at a fraction of the cost
- Indoors in a sportshall for winter nets, indoor cricket
- Rolled out on the outfield to create multiple junior games, host cricket festivals etc
- As a second square to ease pressure on your main square
