Flicx UK adds RESPONSEBALL to its portfolio of innovative training aids

By on March 1, 2014

Flicx UK is delighted to announce that it has added RESPONSEBALL® to its exciting portfolio of high quality, fun, innovative and unique training aids that will improve your sporting skills. The agreement reached between the two companies will commence on the 1st March with Flicx UK taking on responsibility for all sales and marketing, customer service, account management, orders and dispatch from its rural Northamptonshire base.



RESPONSEBALL’s specialist range of innovative training balls provides numerous benefits to the UK sports market. Its unique design (protected by trademark, registered design and patent pending) makes it the only ball in the world to provide a combination of regular and irregular flight and bounce. This makes it the perfect training ball for co-ordination, reaction and motor skills training with huge appeal to coaches, clubs and schools. The current range includes training balls for football, futsal and netball, with other new products on the horizon.

Like Flicx UK’s existing brands, Crazy Catch and the new 2G Flicx Pitch, this acquisition fits in with the company’s current distribution strategy via retailers rather than direct to the end consumer. This strategy has proved hugely successful for the company in the past few years having built strong relationships with key accounts, as well as providing bespoke digital marketing support which have seen sales soar. This support, combined with the quality and performance of the RESPONBSEBALL product, makes it an exciting proposition for the team at Flicx UK. Speaking about the agreement Flicx UK Managing Director Richard Beghin said “We are excited about the prospect of developing the RESPONSEBALL brand which already has a great reputation in the marketplace. The product perfectly fits our existing portfolio of offering unique, fun, innovative, high quality sporting products and we look forward to the next stage in the brands development”

Inventor and RESPONSEBALL owner Glenn Robertson will remain involved with the brand in a consultancy capacity focusing particularly on product development. Glenn commented “No matter what level you play, from social to professional, RESPONSEBALL helps you to succeed. I am thrilled to be working with Flicx UK now and with their expertise I am hugely positive we can take the RESPONSEBALL brand to the next level and grow the sales significantly in this exciting year for football.”
