Campey bring Renowned Grassroots Pitch Renovation Day to Debdale Park Football Club
Campey Turf Care Systems is bringing the highly successful Grassroots Pitch Renovation Day to Mansfield’s Debdale Park Football Club on Wednesday 16th May 2018.
The maintenance of local football pitches and playing fields has long been in decline with those using them suffering from poor playing conditions and consistently postponed games. This has led to a drop in participation and lost revenue for clubs that play an important role in the community.
A majority of grassroots clubs run on limited funds and varied amounts of experience offered by volunteer groundsman and local dealers. Because of this, the Renovation Day also offers advice from Campey product specialists who will be able to provide tailored answers to problems that clubs may be facing. All grounds staff, whether professional, amateur, part or full time are invited to attend.
The Grass Roots Renovation Day at Debdale Park will provide the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with the latest and most innovative sports turf machinery and materials. Carrying out basic economically effective maintenance correctly, can make a massive difference in the condition of a playing surface.
Planning and executing a renovation is key to the success of a pitch throughout the season and all stages of renovation will be demonstrated through out the day. The process will begin by using the new Koro FIELDTOPMAKER to fraise mow the pitch before the Imants Shockwave is used for decompaction in preparation for sand to be spread with a Dakota Turf Tender. The Recycling Dresser will then be used to mix the new sand and soil together before a Vredo Overseeder places seed directly into the ground and a Raycam Unirake levels and rakes the surface.
The Raycam LM3010 liquid transfer line marker will demonstrate how to add the perfect finishing touches while the industry leading aeration machine, the Air2G2 GT Air Inject, will also be in action during the day to show what can be done during the season to tackle compacted areas.
