In episode 5 of #AskAsh we make an exciting trip to our printing partners Senecio premises and show you the process of printing corporate or club/school logo’s onto our 2G Flicx Pitches. Watch the Essex Eagles logo being printed on their new 2G Flicx T20 participation pitch – the colours are matched the the intricate details so precise.
Could your club attract a sponsor to help fund you a portable, roll out pitch to help you grow your facilities?? We are getting increasing interest from partners that are able to attract investment in return for the advertising space on the pitch as its a key PR tool with regards to match photography especially with cricket programmes looking to boost participation. Here are just a few examples of the great logo branding we have produced for clients…

Some of the great benefits would also include the fact that a logo can be taken out of the pitch and replaced as sponsors change. We can pretty much do any size you wish and now with tweaks to the pre-treatment and adhesives used, the logo’s are much more hard wearing. The cost of the logo printing is from £250 but we have examples of clubs selling this space for £500-£1000 per season or corporate sponsors actually purchasing 2G Flicx crickets for projects. (NB- we can match pantone shades on the Flicx Pitch tiles too on request)
2G Flicx Pitches were used to host a Kwik cricket festival at Ketton Sports Club last Friday as part of former England Cricketer Dean Headley’s Sport Bash event. This fun filled family sports day supports The Matt Hampson Foundation. Four 2G Flicx Batting Ends (two beige and two green) were placed on the outfield and the only preparation required was to cut the grass short under the wickets. These portable, roll out wickets hosted the BGL Kwik Cricket Cup and Plate over the course of the day.
Organiser Dean Headley is familiar with the 2G Flicx Pitch as his school Stamford purchased one around 6 months ago and for Sport Bash Headley was looking to solve a few issues and hence turned to Flicx …
’’With the growing number of teams that entered this years BGL Kwik Cricket festival at Sport Bash 2018 we needed to increase capacity on the Ketton Cricket Club oval to help increase growing participation, the additional cricket fields created by dividing the oval into 4 smaller fields. Using the 2G Flicx cricket pitch was huge successful with players, coaches and parents alike all having a great time.
The true bounce off the 2G Flicx cricket pitches ensured that loads of runs was scored and the fact that you can just roll these wickets out in the outfield after cutting the grass short meant that the ground staff were not overworked by having to cut, roll and paint wickets where the bounce would not have been as good as it was on the day using the Flicx cricket pitches.’’

After a great day of cricket Uppingham U9’s won the final by 14 runs whilst Stamford U9’s won the Plate Final against Bourne. This ground utilisation concept was described by Ashley Appleby in #AskAsh and it’s becoming a common request from national and local cricket associations looking to boost participation in areas of limited space. 1 oval can be divided in 2,3 or 4 junior cricket pitches.
