August 2017 – Amateur sports teams across the country are in with the chance to be able to renovate their amateur sports pitch with a premiership sports pitch makeover!
“Pitch to Play” has been launched by Allett and the Institute of Groundsmanship (the IOG) to find the amateur pitch in the country most needing of some serious TLC. The chosen club will be awarded with some top of the range groundskeeping equipment worth £3,000, plus a bespoke pitch maintenance programme from the IOG.
Pitch to Play is open to any amateur sports team in the UK that has an under 18s team, no matter what sport.
Leigh Bowers, sales director at Allett, said: “We know that there is nothing worse than trying to play on a poor-quality sports pitch, so we are eager to help transform the winner’s grounds into something that not only their team, but also their community, can be proud of.”
“Allett lawnmowers are the best in business for professional groundskeepers. Our machines are used on some of the top premiership pitches and the most famous sports grounds around the world. Pitch to Play gives grassroots teams the chance to win equipment to renovate their pitches which will reap benefits for seasons to come!” he added.
The winner of Pitch to Play will receive £3,000 to be used on the purchase of a new Allett lawnmower to help maintain the pitch to a professional, premiership standard. The runners up will win £500 towards the club kitty and third place will win £250. All prize winners will also receive a tailor-made maintenance programme from the IOG to help maintain the pitch for the future, along with a new kit and pitch side sponsorship.
