0 Free seminar to show how local facilities could fund themselves

Notts SportSchools and local authorities are being invited to an exclusive free seminar focusing on an exciting flexible funding service that makes it easy and affordable to achieve first-class sporting facilities.

At a time when public money is tighter than ever before, Fast Track Funding offers an ideal solution to enhance sports facilities with a brand new Notts Sport all-weather pitch - at little or no upfront cost!

What's more, with most sports facilities able to generate revenue through community use, this revenue can either reduce the overall cost significantly or make the facility pay for itself.

To showcase this fantastic initiative, Notts Sport is hosting a series of 12 special Continuing Professional Development events for schools and local authorities across the UK throughout February and March.

With Fast Track Funding, qualifying customers won't have to wait to secure funding for their Notts Sport surfacing solutions such as MUGAs, hockey pitches, 3G artificial football pitches or tennis courts, or spend time applying for grants to cover the cost of their ideal project.

Instead, Notts Sport will provide a flexible funding solution with repayments spread over an agreed period to suit their specific budget. So depending on the customer's requirements, Notts Sport could provide full funding for the facility or supply part of the cost to top up existing funds.

Shaun Patrick, Chairman of Notts Sport, says: "These informative professional seminars will introduce our flexible funding scheme to staff from schools and local authorities to ensure they can achieve top-notch sports facilities for their communities - even in these times of economic austerity.

"With Fast Track Funding, whether it's a brand new project or the refurbishment of an existing pitch, the new facility can be installed straight away - and we can provide valuable advice on how customers can earn additional income from their new sporting facilities, ensuring they start to pay for themselves almost straight away."

Notts Sport designed facilities are the cost-effective way to provide a wide range of sports and activities in one self-contained area, and are proven to be long-lasting options designed to minimise life costs for the operators.

Notts Sport's high-quality solutions comprise every component required for the scheme to create just the right performance for activities such as football, hockey and tennis, from base construction through to performance layers and synthetic grass surfacing.

The package of facility design options includes every element of the scheme including drainage, access arrangements, perimeter fencing and floodlighting. Even new car parking areas or additional non-synthetic turf facilities can be delivered as part of the contract and Notts Sport's service.

And not only will customers benefit from Notts Sport's Design & Advisory Service - provided at no additional cost to the materials supplied - but the project will also be put out to competitive tender among the company's approved installers, guaranteeing the best possible value for money.

The company, which has over 27 years of experience in the sports and play surfacing sector, also assures full quality control throughout the installation through its free project management service.

The events are being held in Newcastle, the West Midlands, Berkshire, Manchester, Exeter, Cambridge, Chester, Hounslow, Glasgow, Surrey, Cardiff and Sheffield.
