With the bowling season fast approaching, an overwhelming number of greenkeepers are making their way to Dennis and SISIS Bowling Green Maintenance Seminars, to gain advice and tips on best practice.
The popular seminars by the suppliers of ground maintenance equipment, are designed to educate greenkeepers on how to maintain and look after bowling greens. Combining insightful seminars and practical tips, a number of industry experts take to the stage to discuss a wide range of key topics.
The most recent seminar held at Herts Bowling Club in Watford, attracted 80 greenkeepers. After an introduction from Dennis and SISIS’ Robert Jack, this seminar welcomed the knowledgeable sports turf consultant Alan Lewis, who drew upon his wealth of experience to deliver a presentation ‘Spring Maintenance on a Bowling Green.’
Other topics discussed included grass seed – Luke Hunt from Barenbrug UK advised delegates on how to choose the correct seed for their greens, and a Turf Clinic enabled the audience of greenkeepers to ask their own questions to the panel of expert speakers.
The day also included an on-green demonstration in which delegates got the opportunity to see a number of turf maintenance techniques in action.
John Hay, Hertfordshire bowls greens co-ordinator, worked alongside Dennis & SISIS in arranging the seminar and felt that the day was a huge success.
“The seminar had a fantastic response and it was very timely because it has helped greenkeepers prepare for the season ahead,” he says
“It was invaluable to all of the clubs that attended; the speakers were amazing, there were a few myths put to bed about what should and shouldn’t be done and there was a nice turf clinic which gave the greenkeepers the chance to speak their minds.
“Most of the people who attend these seminars are people who work voluntarily to support their clubs and therefore seminars like this can really make a big difference.”
The next seminar dates are as follows:
Tuesday 9 April – Hykeham Bowls Club, North Hykeham, Lincolnshire.
Wednesday 10 April – Ashbourne Bowls Club, Ashbourne, Derbyshire.
Thursday 11 April – Hewell Bowls Club, Redditch, Worcestershire.
