The Football Foundation developed the PitchPower web app as a self-assessment tool through which clubs and other organisations are able to receive a quality rating of their pitches and receive tailored maintenance advice.
A PitchPower report is the first step for organisations looking to apply to the Football Foundation for funding through the Grass Pitch Maintenance Fund, which not only provides tapered funding for enhanced works to grass pitches, but also for machinery and storage facilities.
Our Facilities & Investments Officer, Beckie Street, said: “It is fantastic to see the tremendous results that the enhanced pitch maintenance carried out at Nutley has had in a relatively short period of time.
“By using the tools and funds available them, the volunteers have followed the advice of the Grounds Management Associations Regional Pitch Advisor and are rightfully proud of the pitches they use.
“We are hosting a webinar on Monday 26 February 2024, 6:30pm to 8:00pm, on the topic of Grass Pitch Key Spring Maintenance Operations and Best Practice Guidance. Attending this free webinar would be a great start for clubs looking to see a similar result in the future.”
