Testimonials of the 2G Flicx Pitch in County Boards
We are encouraged and delighted by the positive response from our clubs who have purchased the pitches to ease pressure on existing fine turf and non-turf pitches in the view of increasing participation for all in the County.”
Katie Berry, Director of Participation Middlesex Cricket commented “The versatility of this product allows Middlesex Cricket to take the game to communities where there is poor or low provision of cricket pitches, it also allows us to increase playing sites in London where green space is in high demand and unfortunately reducing! Not only does the 2G Flicx system provide a good playing surface and focal point for participants, it’s also a great coaching aid for beginners and experienced players alike.
