The ACA #GrassrootsCricketFund has just launched and is taking applications this September for the 2020 scheme. Up to $2000 is available towards products including the 2G Flicx Pitch so, if you are an Australian club looking to expand your cricket capacity and host additional players and teams, then the 2G Flicx Multi Age Pitch is a great solution and means you can divide an oval (or any green space like a park or soccer field) into 3 or 4 pitches for junior cricket. The same versatile Flicx Pitch can also host additional senior teams, be used in the nets, indoors or enable you to play cricket on pretty much any firm, flat surface producing a true and realistic bounce for cricket which will increase the standards of competition and great a more authentic experience for your players.

Second Flicx x CA application window – save 40% on Flicx Pitches with our group order
To assist clubs further for the upcoming new season, Flicx UK and Cricket Australia (CA) have agreed to create a second application window which allows Flicx Pitches to be ordered at a preferential group rate based on a second container of pitches arriving by sea from where they are hand made to order in the UK (including the option to brand the pitch with a club or sponsors logo). The second batch of pitches are scheduled to arrive in Australia at the end of November / early December and full information on the project is available here https://flicx.com/the-2g-flicx-pitch/australia/ … you can request a bespoke quote for your club as part of the preferential group purchasing opportunity.
For more information and case history, check out the SACA blog on how Flicx Pitches are helping them maximise and prioritise green space for cricket https://flicx.com/flicx-pitches-transforming-green-spaces-into-new-cricket-opportunities-to-play/ and do get in touch with any questions required for your funding application. NB – there is also a larger infrastructure fund also open for bids. Since 2019, the Grassroots Cricket Fund has delivered over $4.8 million from Australia’s professional cricketers across investment into facilities and equipment grants, with the funding helping over 1,300 clubs.
In addition to the ACA #GrassrootsCricketFund there is also the continuation of the Toyota #GoodforCricket Raffle which has raised $84,925 AUD to date for community cricket with South Perth Junior Cricket Club using the fund towards their growing collection of pitches which they roll out in local parks around the city to host junior cricket games.
