Does Your Amateur Club Need Maintenance Help?

14th November 2017
Sport, News

Amateur sports teams who need a helping hand in looking after their pitch have until the end of November to make their application to win £3,000 worth of grounds maintenance machinery.

Pitch To Play, a competition ran by Allett Lawnmowers and the Institute of Groundsmanship (the IOG), is open to all amateur sports teams with an under 18s team, no matter what the sport. The winner will receive £3,000 to spend on a new Allett mower to help maintain their pitch to a professional, premiership standard! They will also receive a tailor-made maintenance programme from the IOG to help maintain the pitch for the future and tackle any problems.

Entering is easy. Simply visit www.pitchtoplay.co.uk before 1st December 2017 and submit at least three photos showing why your club deserves to win.

Leigh Bowers, sales director at Allett, said: “We know that there is nothing worse than trying to play on a poor-quality sports pitch, and appreciate the hours of hard work that groundsteams and volunteers put in. The winter is undoubtedly the most challenging time for groundsteams and the looming December deadline gives people the chance to strengthen their entry for the competition and make sure that those most in need of help are in with the chance of winning.”

Allett and the IOG want to recognise the hard work that amateur groundsteams and volunteers undertake across the country, often with limited resources and equipment, and reward them for all that they do. Pitch to Play champions amateur groundstaff and gives them the opportunity to renovate the pitches that they look after, whilst brightening the future for their club.
