Leading synthetic surfacing supplier Notts Sport has unveiled an exciting new flexible funding service that makes it easy and affordable for schools and communities to achieve first-class sporting facilities.
At a time when public money is tighter than ever before, Fast Track Funding offers an ideal solution for local authorities and schools seeking to enhance their sports facilities with a brand new Notts Sport all-weather pitch.
Under this helpful incentive, 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.
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.
And not only will customers benefit from Notts Sport's Design & Advisory Service - guiding them through the wide range of bespoke surfacing options available to meet their needs 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.
Shaun Patrick, Chairman of Notts Sport, says: "We recognise that it is becoming increasingly difficult for schools and local authorities to deliver top-notch sports facilities in these times of economic austerity and tightening capital budgets - and that's why we're delighted to introduce our brand new Fast Track Funding scheme.
"This fantastic new initiative means our customers can achieve the facilities their communities crave - whether it's a brand new project or the refurbishment of an existing pitch - without having to spend months or even years securing funding.
"Under Fast Track Funding, we take care of the financial side of the scheme and work out a flexible finance package with monthly, quarterly or annual payments, according to the client's needs.
"We will also help them identify their ideal bespoke pitch solution and then ensure the project is delivered at optimum value - and we can even 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.
Notts Sport customers and project teams benefit from expert advice and assistance from the design stage to installation and aftercare, while retaining full control over the characteristics and components that make up their specific facility.
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 and by using its network of trained, qualified contractors located throughout the UK.
