Grassports secures multiple wins at 2018 SAPIA awards

Grassports secures multiple wins at 2018 SAPIA awards
September 7, 2018

Leading sports surface designers and constructors Grassports Australia was a multiple winner at last week’s Sports and Play Industry Association (SAPIA) 2018 Industry Awards, winning in three major category awards.

Presented at the SAPIA National Conference held in Kingscliffe, NSW, Grassports secured the Innovation Award for its Cricket Wicket Training Facility, the Surfacing of Outdoor Sports Facilities Award for its work at Star of the Sea College, Victoria and the Construction of Sports Facilities Award for its work East Doncaster College, Victoria.

The company was also the runner-up in the Construction of Sports Facilities for its work at ILIM College Doveton, Victoria.

Grassports’ Cricket Wicket Training Facility is a remarkable new product with markings to indicate the type of ball being bowled depending on where the ball bounces.

As a result, it can assist coaching and help improve player and team performance by increasing bowlers’ accuracy.

The patented innovation, exclusive to Grassports Australia, is suitable for beginners to advanced athletes.

Commenting on the Awards success, Grassports Australia Managing Director, Bernard Evans stated “(we are) very proud to be acknowledged by our peers and the Industry as a whole (and) also very proud of the whole Grassports team that helped create these fabulous facilities.

“Accompanying me were Darren Scanlan Jim Tritt - from APT our grass manufacturer – and Brenden Dawson."
