“The ever-growing junior cricket landscape demands more facilities and facility optimisation, with the 2G MAP Flicx Pitch; this allows more games to be played, more often with a strong alignment to the Australian Cricket Formats” – James Liggins, Cricket Australia

After a successful pilot project with Cricket Victoria in 2017, and a more extensive countrywide Cricket Australia trial in 2018 with great feedback from participating states and clubs, last year the first subsidised and centrally purchased order of pitches was distributed to clubs in Australia – primarily used for junior cricket formats.

For 2020, despite financial challenges from Covid 19, Flicx and CA are able to offer preferential pricing and a single fixed pitch price for clubs on the following recommended products.

  • Junior Multi Age Pitch (18m with a 16m crease marked) $3908 AUD
  • Senior Multi Age Pitch (20.12m with 18, 16m creases marked) $4,655 AUD
  • Extra Length Multi Age Pitch (22.12m with crease lines at 20m, 18m and 16m including 1m runup each end) $5,140 AUD

Flicx UK are proud to present the worlds most versatile, artificial cricket pitch

Club, schools and associations can now create new or develop existing facilities by rolling out a 2G Flicx Pitch on a range of under surfaces. Flicx is suitable for ADULTS or JUNIORS, HARD ball or SOFT ball, OUTDOORS or INDOORS and is a POPULAR and COST-EFFECTIVE solution used all round the world! 

We are proud to work with Cricket Australia to offer the Junior, Senior and Extra Length 2G Flicx Multi Age Pitch to clubs to help facilitate growth in the game and host the best possible standard of cricket matches and training to bring long lasting participation growth. With Flicx you just need a firm, flat surface so the applications for our pitch and use cases are vast…

01

High Quality

The 2G Flicx Pitch provides a firm surface for your matches and training. The tile is very durable, grippy (taking spin and seam) and includes UV stabilisation technology so you can play in all weathers. The “feet” of the pitch help it mould to your under-surface. Flicx offer a 5 year manufacturers warranty.

Built to last years and years!

02

Portable

The 2G Flicx Pitch is supplied in two half pitch batting ends to make it possible for one person to move and roll out the pitch with the Flicx Safety Trolley (although two people makes for lighter work). One pitch could be used in multiple venues as well as being halved for use in the nets or for indoor cricket.

A roll out solution

03

Versatile

The 2G Flicx Pitch is suitable rolled out on a wide range of under surfaces including grass, synthetic pitches, indoors, on playgrounds, over existing worn astro strips, on the outfield or even on the beach! Just rolled the pitch on a firm, flat area and follow our 6 steps to success for optimal pace and bounce

So many applications!

04

Value for Money

Flicx have partnered with Cricket Australia to offer subsidised MAP pitches based on being part of a bulk container order. By joining this order system, organisations benefit from around a xx% price discount versus ordering direct in isolation. Custom, duties and delivery are all organised too – see the timeline for proposed 2020 dates

A great investment

05

Open up green spaces

With green spaces at a premium and multi-use sports areas being stretched, there are councils that find themselves under severe pressure in terms of facility utilisation. Portable pitches allow for these grounds to not only be well used, but they could potentially also allow for junior cricket to be prioritised and standards of play increased.

Maximise ground utilisation

06

Develop the game

The 2G Flicx Pitch enables you to host additional teams. Junior, womens and girls cricket is growing fast which creates additional pressures for places to play. Flicx Pitches can be rolled out over a range of bases to create extra high quality match and training facilities. Kids enjoy playing on Flicx Pitches which clearly defines the playing area

Sustained participation growth

Case Studies

Here’s is some feedback from councils, clubs and associations who have been part of the extensive trials of the 2G Flicx Pitch in Australia – these organisations have all been looking to expand their cricket capacity or enabling multiple junior teams to play on one single oval and have been delighted with the performance of their Flicx Pitch

 

Grant Smethurst

Recreational Services Coordinator


Organisation: Stonnington Council

“The city of Stonnington Council was one of the councils involved in the 2018 pilot project to try and solve one of urban Australia’s most perplexing issues; the proper utilisation of junior sport’s dwindling recreational space in densely populated inner-city areas. Flicx Pitches have minimal impact on the subsurface, which is fantastic. We’re thinking it would be beneficial to play junior games using these pitches on Premier Club venues – they provide us with more of a chance to get kids to play cricket,”


Scott Tutton

Club and Competitions Manager


Organisation: Cricket Victoria

Apart from their durability, the 2G Flicx Pitches portability allows for two or more junior games to be played simultaneously on the one oval. In the metropolitan areas of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, there are councils that find themselves under severe pressure in terms of facility utilisation. Portable pitches would allow for these grounds to not only be well used, but they could potentially also allow for junior cricket to be prioritised and allow for them to play on better quality grounds.”


Helen Uppill

Junior Chair


Organisation: South Perth Junior Cricket Club

“SPJCC now has two 2G Flicx Pitches which are helping to increase the standard of junior cricket games. 630 kids play at over 20 different grounds in the city with the Flicx Pitch meaning that every single park can, within 15-20 minutes, be turned into a cricket pitch. The Flicx pitch provides a stable, realistic cricket pitch surface for Juniors to play cricket on”


Mark Webber

Junior Co-ordinator


Organisation: Walkerville Cricket Club

“These durable and portable pitches allows for two or more junior games to be played simultaneously on the one oval, meaning traditional cricket issues of space and pitch availability for juniors could become a thing of the past.We can get a better critical mass of players using one oval. It’s better for parents, better for players, gives a greater atmosphere and a better use of facilities”


The first deadline for pitches has now closed but we are pleased to be offering a second order window this September to co-incide with the ACA Grass Roots Cricket Fund application window. Grants can be used towards the purchase of a 2G Flicx Pitch and is a great way to increase your clubs capacity for matches and training.

What our Clients say...

“Flicx is more than just a cricket pitch, it’s an enabler to change lives. The standard of batting from the Timor-Leste players has improved significantly in just the short time we have been using the pitch”

Mark Young, Timor- Leste Cricket

“Our 2G Flicx Pitch is really good. Our bowlers really like it and we have achieved considerable success this season with the bat. Playing on a Flicx Pitch is a really great and cost-effective option for us and we are very happy with the pitches performance”

Soundar Alagesan, CCB Bayern

“Flicx have created a cricket wicket more true than any other artificial any of us have played on. Favouring neither batsmen nor bowlers, this is an excellent piece of kit which will help youngsters develop their cricket and adults hone their skills – highly recommended for any club.

Alex Britten, Southwold Cricket Club

“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”

Liz McPherson, Fan, Activation and Community Manager, Sydney Sixers, Australia

“With no groundsman or expertise to prepare grass wickets, a drop-in pitch made a lot of sense for us. The 2G Flicx Pitch has absolutely TRANSFORMED THE STANDARD of cricket that we can teach and means we also now play matches against other schools. It has also pushed our better cricketers who no longer have to rely on a makeshift, bobbly football pitch.”

Mark Costin, Sacred Heart School, Battersea

“We used our 2G Flicx Pitch for a hard ball match weekend – 3 matches – with seniors in Iceland and it played very well in a challenging environment.
We even had a 100 scored in the last T20 game”!

Darren Talbot, Iceland Cricket

“The 2G Flicx Skills Pitch has been a fantastic addition for our cricketers for their winter training. Both batters and bowlers have benefited from more visual cues and targets, both individually and against each other”

Simon Francis, Warwick School

“Bute County fully endorse the obvious logic in purchasing a Flicx 2G wicket. The benefits are numerous and it’s very easy for two people to transport and then quickly roll out to get the game started.”

David Mackay, former chairman of Bute County CC

“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!

Katie Berry, Middlesex Cricket
