The magic of MAP … Your choice of crease lengths in a pitch for all age groups
The 2G Flicx Multi Age Pitch (MAP) gives more options for cricket clubs and schools to host various different age groups of players all on one, portable, roll out cricket pitch.
With national governing bodies globally focusing their efforts on encouraging younger players to get more success and involvement in the game, different solutions have been announced including the use of shorter pitches, smaller boundaries and in some cases lighter balls and different restrictions on batting and bowling. The ECB have announced the following pitch suggestions for different ages recently with “international” markings generally at 14,16 and 18 metre lengths.
|New ECB Guidelines||U9||U11||U13||U15||U17|
|Girls||15 yards||17 yards||19 yards||20 yards||22 yards|
|Boys||15 yards||17 yards||19 yards||22 yards||22 yards|
|CA Guidelines||STAGE 1 Under 10/11||STAGE 2 Under 12/13||STAGE 3 Under 14-19|
With the 2G Flicx MAP Pitch, which is supplied in 2 half pitch batting ends which clip and zip together in the middle, making it easier to transport, we are now enabling customers to choose which 3 crease lengths they want including in their multi age pitch with the pitch itself being giving a run off area for for all age groups, making it suitable for senior cricket too. The total pitch length is 22.12m.
