Pitch Maintenance Conference to take place at Close House

10.09.18 at 09:52am

Northumberland FA are delighted to announce that this year’s Pitch Maintenance Conference will be held at Close House Golf Club on Thursday 21st February 2019.

Following delegate feedback from last year’s event, we have adjusted the format to include specific practical demonstrations, and seminars designed to support both you and your work across a range of pitch maintenance activities.

There will be introduction sessions from both Ian Powell of the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) and Mark Woodhall of the Northumberland FA, followed by a transfer to the site where candidates will receive demonstrations on: Cutting & Moving (Greenlay), Deep Aeration (Wiedenmann), Pre/Post Match Slitting (Dennis Sisis), Line Marking (Fleet Line Marking) and Over Seeding (Rickerby’s/Redexim Charterhouse).

There will also be a buffet lunch provided followed by seminars with keynote speakers from the IOG, The Football Foundation and Northumberland FA – along with networking opportunities throughout the day.

Due to increased demand we are once again limiting the spaces available at this unique event. As part of the £10 registration fee, all delegates will receive the following: Light Breakfast, Lunch, Tea and Coffee and Free entry to prize draw (prizes include: A 4 ball on the Filly Course at Close House Hotel & Golf Resort; An overnight stay for 2 at Close House Hotel & Golf Resort).
