• Manufacturers of acrylic products and synthetic grass
• Manufacturers and suppliers of sports equipment including basketball towers, netposts, netting, fencing and sand
• Sports court and sports field builders, surfacers and installers
• Sports surface testing consultants

Further information and membership details is available on the Association website
