Simon said “We are really excited by the partnership with Flicx UK. Working together we believe we can have a significant impact on participation in state schools and this comes as we approach what is being described as the biggest summer of cricket ever with the World Cup and Ashes taking place in England next year. We hope the supply of 2G Flicx Pitches into the school network will enable further growth of the game.”
