How many games have you had on your pitches to date including dual use surfaces. To incluse reserve/rugby/friendlies and cup games Any replies would be great and also interesting - premiership/league?

Matches

Although i manage grass tennis courts the use is great

Ok...This is a typical summer schedule for me

4 grass court Tournements (2 county standard)

9 hours per day (7 Days a week)=63 hours per week -Depending on conditions

The problems i`ve got is with play 7 days a week and demand for play is great then it`s difficult to "Rotate" courts and keep courts out.

However i must say i`ve got from Aug-Apr to renovate and manage the courts

God knows how you rugby/footy boys manage with so many matches and games close together AND when cellular growth rates are at their lowest.

Thanks

21 first team games-are you sure??? According to your fixtures this season you have had 16 including the cup-there is no way you had 5 pre season friendlies-no-one does at that level!

pitch 013.jpg
Just to add, I look after a few non league pitches, one of them is Flackwell Heath Football Club, Ryman Div.2, we have today 21/01/06 had our 50th game...we have just agreed a 3 year ground share with a lower league club, Marlow Utd, as well as renting out to other clubs, this is a picture of the pitch today after i put some sand on, chain-harrowed two directions and then quadraplayed two directions...What do you guys think..?

It looks a credit to you ticky21. Where do all these football clubs find the money? and how much do they pay for this maintenance? In my neck of the woods very little if any at all is spent.

Thankyou for that Bath I must confess, that i do some of the labour FOC as a way of sponsorship, but thats only cos ive picked up business from other clubs thru this one, and i have a board on the pitch...but there are a couple of influencial members on the committee and they do seem to pull in sponsors, on average their monthly bill would be £350-400....plus materials...

Paul

I have my own Liverpool thread on another website and I'm taking 'a hell of a beating' at the moment.

:-(

ticky

I bet those stripes looked straight as a die after you'd enjoyed the chairman's hospitality?
