Flicx was founded by Richard Begin when he realised the lack of world-class sports facilities in South Africa at the time. Understanding that nothing unites the people of this country quite like sport, Richard embarked on his passionate quest to make quality sport equipment and facilities more accessible and affordable to all – especially children and young aspiring athletes.
Flicx Cricket Pitches
Richard’s sporting passion lay mostly in cricket and this led him to develop the Flicx Cricket Pitch. In August 1997, he rolled out the first one at Telkom Country Club in Gauteng.
These synthetic cricket pitches are for both match and practice, indoor and outdoor and have been designed to meet your needs from club and school cricket to back garden cricket.
After creating a successful business in South Africa, Flicx launched the Flicx Cricket Pitch at the England and Wales Cricket coaching conference in 1999. In 2001 Flicx took over the Brell Bowling Machines brand and have developed and refined them so that we are now offering superior machines to all levels of the cricket fraternity.
Our Range of Sport Equipment
While our passion began with cricket, we love all sport and are proud to offer sporting equipment and accessories for other sports, such as hockey, rugby and athletics amongst others.
Hockey: The Brell Hockey/Fielder (BHF) was developed to give the hockey coach and the cricket coach the ability to train their players more effectively – all with one machine. The BHF was developed with this dual purpose in mind.
Rugby: Our rugby posts are available in painted steel, are fully welded and come with ground sleeves
Sports netting: Available for soccer, tennis, athletics, basketball, netball and volleyball
Foam sports equipment: This includes landing mats, tackle bags, contact shields, post protectors, boundary rope wedges, ball stoppers, gym bags, punch bags and many others on request.
