How is the 2G Flicx Pitch used in the States?

The 2G Flicx Pitch is a portable, roll out – roll up solution so it ticks the boxes for those looking to play in parks or open spaces as the pitch can be rolled out just before the game and there is no damage to the under surface. Cricket academies have seen huge benefit in using batting ends to develop their talent whilst the pitch is also commonly laid on concrete or synthetic turf fields to convert them into cricketing venues.

Players and clubs always point to the increase in the match quality with the 2G Flicx Pitch. It provides a grippy surface where the ball comes onto the bat nicely, favouring neither the batters or bowlers.

“We take immense pride in providing the Beehive State with a pitch which enhances the scope of cricket in Utah to the next level. Our new pitch allows an even playing field for the batsman and bowlers, helps the youngsters develop their skills as well as provides a set-up for adults to hone their skills. We truly believe that the 2G Flicx is to play a catalyst for us as a club to reach one of our true goals and that is to create opportunities for more people to enjoy the global game!!” – Utah Lions

“We chose the 2G Flicx Pitch because it’s a portable solution and means Novel Sports can set up a cricket experience centre at various locations for all to enjoy. We have already found that kids are very motivated to play on artificial surfaces such as the Flicx Pitch as it offers a good bounce and spin” – Novel Sports (Trinidad)

Coaching Cricket on the 2G Flicx Skills Pitch #AskAsh

Flicx UK’s business development manager Ashley Appleby teams up with Dan and Kieran from We Coach Cricket as they review the 2G Flicx Skills Pitch in the 4th episode of #AskAsh

With coloured coded coaching tiles, bowlers have a visual target for improved line and length consistency whereas batters can work on their decision making and correct shot selection. The 2G Flicx Skills Batting End is easy and quick to roll out and produces a consistent bounce and good pace when laid on a firm, flat surface (either indoors or outdoors).

You Tubers Kieran and Dan spent a day batting, bowling and keeping wicket on the world’s most versatile cricket pitch ( a 10m batting end) and will be releasing a series of coaching videos to demonstrate how coaches can use the wicket to improve their bowlers accuracy or batters shot selection with the use of visual cues.

“From my perspective bowling leg spin it’s really important to have something to train on that is realistic. The ball turned on the 2G Flicx Pitch just like it would on an outdoor wicket so that was fantastic”. Keiran at We Coach Cricket

“It played really naturally that was the most important thing for me. There was a bit in it for spinners, there was a bit in it for the seamers as well and it really was a nice natural bounce” A lot of the synthetic pitches ive played on in the past have always been quite dead and haven’t had much bounce; if you’ve been keeping, you’ve been taking balls by your ankles but the 2G Flicx Pitch really does have that spring in it you can feel it when you walk on it it’s got that kind of it’s got a little bit of give in it and it really makes a great  difference”. Dan at We Coach Cricket

Kent Cricket Club in Sierra Leone | Changing Lives & Building communities through Cricket

The Kent Cricket Club is based in Sierra Leone and was set up with the intention of using the game of cricket to give young people hope and focus, in overcoming the challenges they faced as a result of war and conflict. Since the creation of the KCC, they have achieved some amazing results, delivering some tremendous outcomes in their communities.


The club is an affiliate member of the Sierra Leone Cricket Association (SLCA), a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Sierra Leone is an emerging cricketing nation in Africa and an integral part of the development and tournament structure overseen by ICC Africa.

The main aim of the Kent Cricket Club Sierra Leone is to engage young people from a range of backgrounds in areas affected by disaster, youth crime and anti-social behaviour. Many of the young people KCC has bought under its wing face an uncertain future and cricket has given them support, friendship, purpose and hope.

In February 2018, Kent Cricket Club hosted the first ever Beach Cricket competition in partnership with the Sierra Leone Cricket Association (SLCA) at the Place Resort, Tokeh Beach on Sunday 25th February 2018 which was played on a Flicx Pitch again demonstrating the power of cricket as a force for good and change around the world. www.flicx.co.uk
