Pitches

As sporting enthusiasts, we understand how important a consistent playing surface is for cricket players because a better experience encourages more people to play the game.

In 1997, Flicx developed the famous Flicx cricket pitch. In 2019, the new, improved 3G cricket pitch was launched. This major innovation made it easier to lay a portable cricket pitch on any ordinary field and brought cricket to more people. It’s now used all round the world.

Artificial grass surfaces have also become more widespread. They create a great surface for playing cricket that’s more permanent.

We can supply, install, maintain or repair your cricket pitch. We also supply spare parts.

RECOMMENDATION: “The Country Club Johannesburg highly recommends FLICX South Africa for high quality cricket nets and pitch.”  Charmaine Klug-Price – Club Manager

What do you need for your cricket field?

Bases / Sub-Surfaces

A crusher or concrete base is often used underneath a synthetic grass surface.

Synthetic-carpet-Oval-Pitch-bowling machine brell bowling machine bowling machine price bowling machine for sale south africa bowling machine
Artificial Grass Surfaces

Synthetic grass / astro that is ideal for cricket and multi-sports. A more permanent solution for indoor / outdoor.

3G Flicx Pitches

Popular, portable solution. Made up of plastic blocks that fit together to form a mat. Can be laid on top of any short-grass sports field for a season.

Run-ups

Rubber run-ups are the best option. An economical option is to do them in the same synthetic grass as the pitch.

Maintenance

If you have a pitch or nets that need some TLC, we can refurbish your pitch and equipment.

Not Sure?

We are experts at cricket solutions. We can advise you on an option to suit your situation.

Bases / sub-surfaces for pitches

Before you lay a pitch, you need a level, firm surface underneath. This will create the best surface for playing cricket. It can be grass that is mown short (for 3G pitches) or the more permanent option of a crusher / concrete base (for Synthetic Grass Surfaces).

Crusher Base

The better but more expensive option, providing a little “give” like a tennis court. The bounce is closer to that of a normal turf wicket.

concrete bases cricket nets cconcrete pitch cricket side screen cricket screen cricket sight screens suppliers cricket sight screen

Concrete Base

The most common, cost-effective, and durable base. The bounce is marginally higher than that of a turf wicket.

Artificial grass surfaces

Flicx supplies two types of type artificial turf that are best for cricket, astro and multi-sports. They don’t need any water and are easy to maintain. Available in 2 m wide rolls.

Artificial grass surfaces are a more permanent installation. They require occasional maintenance.

Premium Flicx MultiSport 155 Synthetic Grass Surface

Premium-Flicx-MultiSport-155

High quality with a thicker, denser pile for a longer-lasting surface. Average life span of 5 years, depending on wear and tear.

Standard Flicx MultiSport 153 Synthetic Grass Surface

Standard-Flicx-MultiSport-153

More economical range. Tough wearing for school sport. Average life span of 3 years, depending on wear and tear.

3G Flicx pitches

Flicx developed this unique system specially for cricket. It was the first portable pitch and is intended to make a cricket pitch accessible to more players. It’s easy to set up on a sports field and in spaces that aren’t always used for cricket, such as your back yard.

It’s made up of small square blocks that clip together to form a larger mat. The mat can be rolled up for storage at the end of the day or the cricket season.

Set-up is easy on any firm level space with short grass. Roll out in your back yard or the main school rugby field. At the end of the season, roll it back up and store, so that you can use the field for another sport.

To make the pitch easier to roll up at the end of the season, plan to keep the grass that grows through the pitch trimmed.

OUR CLIENTS SAY

“The Country Club Johannesburg highly recommends FLICX South Africa for high quality cricket nets and pitch.

We had our first 2 practice nets installed in summer of 2017. Three and a half years later, the nets and concrete slabs are still in excellent condition. The high-quality product offering and exceptional attention to detail by the installation team is commendable. Our practice cricket nets, and concrete slabs have been received well by members of all ages, who often compliment the upgraded facilities.

So much so that now in May 2021 – we have added in a mobile practice net as well as a concrete cricket pitch in the middle of our field. Again, both were installed perfectly, and we are very happy with FLICX South Africa’s quality of service and product.”
