The versatility of the 2G Flicx Pitch is really its star quality as it has a multitude of applications.
“We used our 2G Flicx Pitch a lot last year and it was great”Tim Devitt, Rottingdean Cricket Club
Marketing and Business Development Manager at Flicx UK Kate Costin is looking forward to working with the Sussex team with Flicx committed to donating a pitch in kind for every 10 pitches sold into the county to go to a good cause project selected by the SCF. There will also be a blue branded SCF batting end located in the FamZone at Sussex matches which interested clubs will be able to come view and test out.
“Here at Flicx, we are keen to profile the versatility of the 2G Flicx Pitch to as many clubs as possible so working with a proactive organisation like the SCF, attending their events, webinars and roadshows is a great way for us to showcase the benefits of Flicx and its many applications for clubs and schools looking to expand their capacity”.
From Sussex Cricket Foundation, Gary Wallis Tayler, Community Cricket Director commented “I had seen and heard about Flicx’ work with the Surrey Cricket Foundation, which is proving very beneficial to cricket, so we were keen to put a similar partnership together. We have lots of clubs in the county who have facility challenges and the 2G Flicx Pitch could be a good solution in many cases, saving clubs time and money in ground preparation and catering for the big increases in demand for pitches that grounds teams are facing”.
