RECYCLING YOUR 2G FLICX PITCH

As ambitions turn towards a greener game, tackling climate change and promoting environmental sustainability within the game of cricket. Flicx is looking at how our pitches can be more environmentally friendly, while mitigating our environmental impact.

Recyclability:

2G Flicx Pitches are made of a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) interlocking tiles where 60% is made up of recyclate and 40% is virgin material. LDPE is a widely recycled material in the UK. After the life of a 2G Flicx Pitch, it can be recycled. Materials can be recovered to be used again keeping materials in use and diminishing the wastage of resourceful materials. In the design and manufacture of the 2G Flicx Pitches we aim to mitigate our waste as much as possible reducing our environmental impact and maximising the usage of materials. During the production phase there is minimal waste produced, connecting lugs that are removed from the pitch are collected to be recycled. 

Design and Long Life:

The principle of repairing and long life is important part of the circular economy model. Designing long lasting and durable products that are easily repaired, removing the need to throw away and create new products. Flicx Pitches are made up of modular interlocking tiles and in the case a tile may wear during its life, all tiles are easily replaceable. Our Pitches have been designed to be durable and long-lasting portable cricket wickets. All our pitches have a 5-year warranty and a 10-year expected lifespan. Some of our pitches from the late 1990’s still going strong with good maintenance and by following our manufacturers guidance. international customer – how long will my pitch take to arrive?

We quote all international orders with a bespoke delivery quote based on location. This can be by air or sea depending which is quickest or most cost effective. Once your pitch is manufactured and ready to dispatch again we will be in touch to confirm the delivery provider and service used. Your original quote will also confirm if any duties need to be paid on arrival and any custom documents required.

Flicx and a greener game

If you are purchasing a pitch, batting end or throwdown with a logo, do allow an extra week for printing. A high res logo needs to be supplied and we can send mock ups ahead of your order to confirm placement and colours. We can also match a pitch to a specific pantone shade to create fully branded pitches for sponsors to use in fan engagement, activation events. If bespoke tiles are required longer lead times apply (typically an extra month) but these pitches look epic !!

End of Life – 

If you no longer wish to use your 2G Flicx Pitch … you have 3 options which we can support your with to recycle your pitch

  1. If you purchase a new pitch, Flicx will also pick up and recycle your old pitch for you at no charge

“The kids absolutely loved playing on the 2G Flicx pitches with parents and families all wanting to take photos! If it wasn’t for the pitches our tour would not have been the success that it was and the team here at the Sixers will be utilising them further with our community events, clinics and for our Fan Day here at the SCG and throughout the season”

“We have been playing cricket on 2G Flicx cricket pitch in Texas, USA since 2015. We are very pleased with how easy it is to set up cricket pitch on any ground surface you want to play cricket. We have played with regular leather balls and hard tennis balls and the bounce has been very consistent. The synthetic surface provides good grip for both the batsmen and bowler. The Flicx pitch is available in full length (22 yards) and half length (11 yards) and is priced reasonably. The Flicx customer support team has been very friendly to answer any questions and share information on how to properly use the pitch”

“I was looking for something in the garden with a realistic bounce. It looked ideal for us. It’s weather-proof and straightforward. The thought of Michael not playing for weeks on end would have driven him mad! This has been fantastic for him. Michael loves the pitch and uses it every day.”

“The Grassroots Cricket Fund helped Launceston Cricket Club purchase a Flicx Pitch. This has allowed the club to host junior matches on the outfield of our home ground at the NTCA complex, and it has also been used for senior training. We are grateful that the purchase of a Flicx Pitch has expanded the access we have to playing and training facilities”

“Our 2G Flicx Pitch has performed extremely really well so far and we have already used it on four different surfaces around the city. On grass the bounce was excellent and then on three differing artificial surfaces again we are very happy as the mat settled down nicely and quickly moulded to the under surface ahead of matches and training”

“Batsmen like playing on the 2G Flicx Pitch wickets as they produce even bounce and good pace which has increased the level of competitiveness in our matches and the ball comes onto the bat nicely so shots like drives can be executed in confidence. We are very satisfied with how the 2G Flicx Pitches are working for us”.
