Sports covered are bowls, cricket, rugby, football, golf and tennis
The growing season has continued, in many parts of the UK, for much of the winter, but now the temperatures are really kicking in, and growth is well underway. Keeping on top of the maintenance of your course, greens and pitches will be quite a challenge.
The purpose of the diaries is to offer advice and guidance on the sort of work you should be contemplating to keep your playing surfaces in a good condition and fit for purpose.
Coming into spring is a busy time for all groundstaff, whether it is summer sports gearing up for a new season, or winter sports planning those important end of season renovations.
No two sports grounds are the same, they all have their own set of unique requirements depending on the level of sport played, type of pitches, current condition, amount of fixtures being catered for and, more importantly, the budgets and resources available to maintain the facilities.
It is these wide ranging variables that make our industry challenging and interesting.
Whatever the weather throws at us, I know from experience that our practising groundsmen and greenkeepers will manage to cope and continue to provide a wonderful service for their clubs and players.
