Designing and maintaining grass sports fields to maximise community use

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free – $25.00

With a growing population we need to not only deliver more green field spaces to meet the needs of the community sport and recreation use but also maximise the carrying capacity of existing sports fields. However, there are challenges for Councils to deliver and managing these spaces to make them suitable for play all year round.

Join us as we delve into this important discussion surrounding how to design and maintain sports fields to keep them open more weeks of the year so people can be more active more often.

Hear from Jarrod Hill, and Lukas Skelton from SportENG about the design and maintenance considerations in constructing grass sports fields for community use with an insight into short- and long-term design thinking and cost considerations.

Hear from Dean Jamieson and Justin Lang, Green by Nature, about some of the lessons learnt in turf management. Why choosing the types of grass is important in maximising use throughout the year and keeping fields suitable for play for longer.

This webinar explores the current landscape for many Councils with a focus on community club use and unstructured active recreation.
