South Hobart Sandy Bay Cricket Club

Flicx UK are proud to be continuing to develop our partnership with Cricket Australia to provide a group purchasing opportunity for our innovative portable, roll out cricket wicket ahead of the 2021 season in Australia. With green space at a premium especially in urban and metro areas, the 2G Flicx Pitch has been allowing clubs, councils, and associations to expand pitch capacity and prioritise junior cricket by maximising existing spaces. https://flicx.com/the-2g-flicx-pitch/australia/

Parks, soccer / AFL or Rugby fields can be quickly converted for cricket matches or training (with no damage to the surface underneath) whilst outfields can be split to host simultaneous junior matches with huge club benefits namely being able to increase participation and club revenue both directly via memberships and indirectly via bar/ catering revenue.

The 2G Flicx Pitch is an easy to use, roll out pitch and on any firm, flat surface produces good pace and bounce creating a player experience realistic to that of a natural turf wicket but without the time and expenses of the preparation and ongoing maintenance headaches for ground staff. Since the 2G Flicx Pitch was first trialled with Cricket Victoria in 2018, around 100 pitches have been sold to schools and clubs all around the country with fantastic feedback and many clubs ordering additional pitches including SPJCC who now have 6 pitches.

Each 2G Flicx Pitch is supplied as two half pitch batting ends so customers have the extra functionality of being able to create additional outdoor cricket nets, training pitches on the outfield or clipped together in the middle to host adult and junior matches. Our popular Multi Age Pitch even has built in crease markings so all ages can play on a single pitch providing even more value for money and versatility.

Speaking about the upcoming season Lachlan Tosh, Junior Cricket Specialist at Cricket Australia said

“We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Flicx for the 2021/2022 summer. The 2G Flicx pitches have provided clubs with the ability to turn their traditional home ground into vibrant cricketing hubs. Given the financial challenges cricket clubs have faced over the past 12 months, the ability to have multiple games on at the same venue at the same time as created a unique revenue opportunity that clubs have not had access to in the past. It has also been great to see the transformation of previously unused green space in cricket grounds across the country through the use of the 2G Flicx Pitch. This has been crucial in supporting the growth of junior players over the past 3 years.”

For those clubs not able to commit during pre-season Flicx are also planning to have extra stock available for immediate local dispatch once the season starts plus new for the 2021 season, Flicx will also be able to supply shorter skills batting ends and throwdowns which are perfect for player development, to add extra training capacity at clubs or to create the ultimate backyard cricket training area in backyards.
