The 2G Flicx Pitch is solving a cricket facility shortage in New Zealand

cricket facility shortage

With cricket participation rates growing by 20% each year, cricket clubs and associations in New Zealand are finding they are a victim of their own successes with a severe shortage of suitable cricket grounds and facilities to play the game. Neeraj Kumar of Complete Cricket has recently started the agency for 2G Flicx Pitches and the response has been hugely positive with the portability and flexibility of the roll out solution really hitting the spot as this recent TV piece on “Newshub” outlines.

This demonstration in question at Karaka Cricket Club in Auckland saw an adult exhibition match take place and over 50 guests attend to eye ball the 2G Flicx product which is manufactured in the UK and was specifically developed to create new opportunities for people to play cricket. If clubs, councils or schools are experiencing a cricket facility shortage, the 2G Flicx provides a solution with multiple applications that are varied and many including converting a grass field into a cricket venue.

Neeraj Kumar spoke about his excitement about the 2G Flicx Pitch product and its performance in New Zealand conditions

“Clubs and schools at our demonstrations to date have all been really impressed by the 2G Flicx Pitch with many orders placed immediately. There is no better solution on the market for clubs in New Zealand who are looking to increase their capacity whilst still offering a realistic cricket experience to both batsmen and bowlers. When rolled out on a firm, flat surface the 2G Flicx Pitch offers good pace and bounce for both senior adult matches right down to grassroots levels for juniors where the pitch can be split and rolled out on the outfield. We have also had interest for backyard pitches and from clubs looking to upgrade or resurface worn astros.

New Zealand 2G Flicx Pitch

The 2G Flicx Pitch is now hugely popular all around the world with the Rajasthan Cricket Board in India funding 70 Batting Ends last year, whilst Flicx UK are developing partnerships with various county boards to help fast track their participation programmes and inspire more children the play the game. The beauty of product is undoubtedly its versatility and portability; One match pitch can be moved by one person using our Flicx safety trolley and then ripped and split into two batting ends. Preparation time is short (the grass below just needs to be cut short) and maintenance minimal whilst the new, softer 2G tile offers excellent grip and offers spin for those bowlers who can turn the ball. A club can use the very same pitch at other locations by rolling it out on synthetic AstroTurf or 3G rubbercrumb pitches, indoor sports-halls, playgrounds or other concrete surfaces or even sand for beach cricket festivals which provides great cost effectiveness on the investment.

Complete Cricket have a full container of 2G Flicx Pitches arriving in New Zealand ahead of the new cricket season and are currently taking pre-orders for pitches.
