Sports providers can benefit from a free condition check for their synthetic turf facilities carried out by leading specialist Notts Sport.
The company, which specialises in pitches for individual sports including cricket, tennis, hockey and football, as well as multi-use games areas (MUGAs), is offering the service to both council and privately owned facilities.
Andy Carter, Chief Executive of Notts Sport, said: "Whether it is an original Notts Sport installation or a facility designed by another company, our experts provide a professional evaluation, plus advice on future maintenance, refurbishment or upgrade options.
"As part of our free condition check, if required, we can outline any action appropriate to the installation, providing costs and timescales.
We can also advise on the potential to upgrade the facility to improve its performance, or to cater for new activities.
"One of the most common issues we see with older sports grounds is that the top carpet has worn, giving the facility the appearance of needing replacing.
This can ultimately lead to a loss of revenue as users are put off, switching to different sports clubs where they feel the facilities are better.
"However, under a worn carpet, the underlying performance layer often has years of life left, which makes refurbishment a straightforward and cost-effective option, particularly in the credit crunch where budgets are tight.
"Sports providers opting for refurbishment can find that the work pays for itself very quickly, and attracts new income as word gets around in a community."
Sport systems are designed by Notts Sport to meet performance standards for a wide variety of activities, delivering controlled, predictable bounce for fast-paced competition or coaching.
The company provides comprehensive solutions for new and existing facilities and, as part of its condition report and advisory service, offers advice on additional features such as floodlighting, fencing and access to a facility.
