Flicx UK were delighted to supply the Sydney Sixers with five magenta pink 4.5m x 1.4m mini cricket pitches for their recent community programme the Sixers Beach Blast. The pitches were manufactured in the UK with the exact pantone colour used plus the Sixers logo was added to the wickets which were produced to a custom specification before being shipped to Sydney.
Ahead of the new BBL season, the Sixers took to the road for an exciting new community activation programme, which saw coaches host cricket clinics for boys and girls with some special guest appearances. The 2G Flicx Pitches were rolled out on the various beach locations down the NSW coastline, providing an attractive playing surface with a good bounce and obviously pitch markings and Sixers branding too.
“ The Sydney Sixers Beach Blast program saw the Sydney Sixers reach approximately 1100 kids up and down our sixers coastline and engaged these kids in a really fun and exciting beach cricket clinic! Prior to the event started I liaised with Gary from Flicx UK who was able to create the pitches for our tour which was vital in it going ahead. Gary and the Flicx team were a pleasure to work with and met every need and requirement to ensure the pitches were correctly coloured and would arrive in time for the event.
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

Netball at Sportfest 2016
The 2G Flicx Netball Court is a portable, roll out court which debuted at Sportfest 2015. This year we were back to help international netball super league player Lindsay Keable and her team deliver fun netball sessions throughout the weekend. The 2G Flicx Netball court offers the following benefits …
Non slip surface that offers excellent grip enabling players to turn and perform dynamic movements with confidence
Bright colours to bring the game to life and inspire players
Branding to provide great PR opportunities for the client (in this instance, the England Netball logo was displayed prominently)
Portable so the court can be moved and changed according to the requirement
Can be laid on various surfaces including grass, concrete, sand for beach netball, indoor sports halls etc so you can take the game to places it has never been played before.
Can be installed permanently so a great option to replace worn courts, resurface concrete courts – with the 2G Flicx Court providing longevity and value for money.
If you are interested in learning more about the 2G Flicx Netball court or any other sports court or sports flooring option from Flicx then do get in touch. You can contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 01295 816765 or visit our website www.flicx.co.uk
Flicx UK, creators of the 2G Flicx Pitch, have now expanded their product range to incorporate Sports Courts in Tennis, Netball and Multi sport use. Courts can be made to any size or colour specification and branding can be added which will appeal to sponsors looking for innovation activation and PR opportunities.
Recently for Sportfest 2016 held at Wormsley, we rolled out our first 2G Flicx Tennis court which coaching company Premier Tennis used all weekend to deliver their program on. It was enjoyed by adult and kids alike with Jeff Hunter, Managing Director, commenting
” I think the surface has performed really well. We have had 500 or so kids on and off the court and some adults too getting stuck in. The court stayed firmly in place, the bounce has been true; its been a really good addition to our program”
In addition to pop up events – where grass fields, artificial surfaces, concrete or beaches could be converted into tennis courts, we also have a cost effective solution to tennis court resurfacing projects. The 2G Flicx tile is durable and has a life span 3 times that of tarmac courts making it very cost effective. Take a look at our fully installed multi sport court that The Lettuce Company use to keep their workforce active.
