Surrey Cricket Foundation and Flicx UK Come Together to Enhance State School Facilities

Surrey Cricket Foundation and Flicx UK have come together to support the development of state school facilities for cricket in Surrey and South London with the development of a new funding programme focused on the versatile 2G Flicx Pitch.

The 2G Flicx Pitch is the world’s most portable, versatile cricket pitch and was designed to enable grass fields to be converted to cricket venues with a roll out, roll up solution. The new and improved 2G tile is now UK made, easier to move, softer when rolling out and offers more grip and better performance, not just on grass but also on synthetic surfaces, playgrounds, indoor halls and more! Clubs and schools are now able to increase their cricket capacity for matches and training, which helps to facilitate increased participation, especially in areas where facilities are a challenge and green spaces at a premium.

The Surrey Cricket Foundation will consider funding up to 50% of the cost of a 2G Flicx Pitch where state schools can demonstrate the provision will enable them to enhance and increase participation in the game. The aim of the funding is to provide an opportunity for schools that may not be able provide a traditional cricket facilities due to the size and lay out of their school site. Flicx UK are integral to the partnership, offering discounted rates on a range of their products that are available within the funding scheme. The ultimate goal is to enable more people to play the game and although possibly a dream rather than a vision, we hope that one day we will be able to say that a Surrey player had their first opportunity to play cricket as a result of a Surrey funded 2G Flicx pitch.

Speaking about the relationship with Surrey Cricket Foundation, Flicx UK’s Business Development Manager Ashley Appleby said “We are delighted to support the Surrey Cricket Foundation and help their vital projects and programmes going forward. The funding pot available for 2G Flicx Pitch purchases by state schools in the county will be instrumental in helping many new young girls and boys access cricket and give them a reliable surface to play on which will in turn encourage shots to be played creating more excitement and enjoyment. That the 2G Flicx Pitch is approved by Surrey for use in matches and training, is a great seal of approval for the quality of the product following extensive tests and trials by stakeholders within the county with excellent feedback and results.”

Participation Manager, Simon Hards said, “We are really excited by the partnership with Flicx UK. Working together we believe we can have a significant impact on participation in state schools and this comes as we approach what is being described as the biggest summer of cricket ever with the World Cup and Ashes taking place in England next year. Beyond that cricket will once again appear on terrestrial television from 2020 onwards and we hope the supply of 2G Flicx Pitches into the school network will enable further growth of the game.”

Director of Participation, Paul Taylor said, “Surrey Cricket Foundation’s mission is to support and improve cricket across Surrey and South London and we believe that this partnership is another example, supporting the state school network to improve their facilities. We hope that this in turn will help schools to increase participation in the game, giving young people a great cricketing experience that will foster a life long love for the game.”
