Pitch partners deliver winter special

5 days ago By David Watters

Sports turf specialists and official pitch partners GreenFields have delivered their third newsletter of the season to the EVO-STIK League's clubs.

Packed with the latest news, tips and insights on tending to grass and artificial turf surfaces, the latest digital newsletter focusing on getting pitches through the winter months started dropping into the in-boxes of all 68 clubs on Thursday.

GreenFields marketing manager Louise Henderson said: "We’ve received some positive feedback so far on the newsletter so let us know if you have any thoughts at all to improve it. This month we focus on tips for the winter months and will expand on this more in January when we will cover Wetting Agents and Worm Control."

GreenFields are looking forward to handing out the EVO-STIK League’s inaugural Pitch of the Year Awards at the end of the season after being appointed this summer as the official pitch partners of the EVO-STIK League.

Launched to reward the best playing surfaces in all three divisions in their first digital newsletter in September, the winners will unveiled at next June’s annual end of season awards night in Blackpool after clubs nominate the top three grass surfaces in their respective divisions in an upcoming online survey in February.

The shortlisted grounds will then be visited by experts from GreenFields who will take into account a number of factors including maintenance resources, geographic location, existing irrigation and the amount of pitch usage before choosing the winners.

As well as the honour of being the first recipients of the new accolades, representatives from the three clubs will also be presented with £500 vouchers to redeem against future maintenance materials or services from the EVO-STIK League’s official pitch partners.

The EVO-STIK League teamed up with GreenFields to provide clubs with surface solutions to meet the growing demand for 3G and hybrid turf pitches, as well as advice on maintaining grass surfaces.
