Pitch Focus 2016

ICL, along with specially selected partners – Syngenta and Bernhard and Company, recently hosted another successful Pitch Focus event. This year’s venue was at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre in Enfield.
The popular educational event has been designed to offer a unique insight into the latest advancements in sports pitch maintenance, focusing on specific research, techniques and products which help support the effective management of premium sports turf.
Christian Brain, Grounds Manager at Cheltenham College, found the event worthwhile: “I’ve found the day very informative and it’s great to be here at such a fantastic site. It’s also provided an ideal chance to network and speak to different people. I particularly enjoyed Henry Bechelet’s seminar – it was extremely useful and very entertaining.”
Echoing Christian’s thoughts was Stan Wallace, Assistant Groundsman at Burton Albion FC, who said: “The seminars have been really interesting – especially the one about seaweed extract and how it affects root growth. It’s been good to keep up to date with what’s out there and what’s going on in the industry. I came today to see if there was anything I could take away which could benefit our turf and I certainly feel like I’ve learned a lot more than what I knew prior to attending.”
