In brief; here are the Six Steps are
- USE THE PITCH AS A PORTABLE ROLL OUT, CRICKET WICKET
Our guidance for the 2G Flicx Pitch is that it is used as a portable cricket wicket and rolled out before use, then back up again rather than as a permanent or semi permanent pitch. This avoids the pitch getting “buried” in softer ground and to easily mow the grass underneath to keep it short.
- TWO ROLLS FORM ONE MATCH PITCH
The 2G Flicx Pitch is supplied in two half pitch rolls for ease of transportation and use. Each of the two batting ends can be used in the nets or rolled out on the outfield for junior games and training, bowling from one end. When you need to play your match, simply clip and zip the two ends together in the middle
- IDENTIFY A FIRM FLAT AREA, CUT THE GRASS SHORT
Creating a firm, flat area is important to ensure optimal pace and bounce. At the start of the season, identify a suitable area to roll out your pitch and cut the grass short (10-20 mm as a maximum). If the ground is a bit uneven, give the area a roll with a roller and finally if there are diverts, fill them up with a similar soil. The firmer and flatter the under surface, the better the pitch will play for you.
- ALLOW TIME FOR YOUR PITCH TO SETTLE
The 2G Flicx Pitch has a memory so needs time to settle once rolled out. We recommend leaving it 20-45 minutes before play for any waves to flatten and for the pitch to mould to the under surface.
- TRANSPORT YOUR PITCH USING THE FLICX SAFETY TROLLEY
The 2G Flicx Pitch is supplied with a Flicx Safety Trolley to make it easier to transport your pitch. It is possible for one person to move and install the pitch, although two people makes lighter work.
- STRAP YOUR PITCH AND STORE UPRIGHT ON ITS END
Your 2G Flicx Pitch should always be stored rolled up, strapped, upright and on its end to help extend the lifespan of your pitch and prevent exaggerated waving when rolling out your pitch.
