2. Lord Taverners

Flicx UK were delighted to attend and support the #Wicketz festival hosted by Lord’s Taveners at Repton School in August. The festival was the biggest in the history of the Wicketz programme and saw over 120 young people from across the country took part in a three-day residential course consisting of competitive cricket, coaching masterclasses and vital life changing workshops. (Read More on this partnership in the blog from the Wicketz Festival) 

3. Indoor Cricket

Great feedback has been forthcoming from numerous sources on how well the 2G Flicx Pitch has been accepted for indoor use and we’ve held a number of different demonstrations on different surfaces just to show people how the pitch works and at the moment we find that the type of feedback that we get is that with conventional matting the bounce is really low, the pitches curl up they difficult and cumbersome to roll and they take up a lot of storage space and with the 2G cricket pitch not only are we sorting out all of those issues but we are giving them terrific performance in terms of pace and bounce and we found that even on low bouncing indoor surfaces the new 2G Flicx cricket pitch gives you improved bounce which has really been encouraging. – says Ashley Appleby

4. Beach Cricket

We have seen some great Beach Cricket events hosted on the 2G Flicx Pitch this year including with Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, Sierra Leone Cricket Association, Sydney Sixers, the Black Caps and in Cornwall, where teams rowed out to a sandbank to play a game sponsored by a local brewery .
