back to list

SAPCA’s Technical Meeting provides a valuable educational event for the sports and play construction industry, as well as an excellent opportunity to network with new and existing colleagues and our guests from a variety of sports and play organisations.

The Technical Meeting is open to everyone in the sports and play construction industry, whether SAPCA members or not. The full delegate fee is £150 but, (thanks to Labosport's support), there is a 50% discount for SAPCA members, making the cost just £75.00. The Technical Meeting Dinner in the evening is optional, at a cost of £35 per person.

The programme covers a wide range of important topics, scheduled to allow plenty of opportunity for debate and interaction between delegates.

These include:

  • Understanding the performance of natural and synthetic sports surfaces
  • Standards for the selection of performance infills for 3G surfaces
  • Introducing the new Code of Practice for Tennis Courts
  • The "One Turf Concept" for synthetic turf
  • LED lighting for tennis courts - the view from the LTA
  • British/European Standards for football goals and synthetic surfaces
  • Best practice for playing lines, facility dimensions and layouts
  • Latest performance specifications for hockey surfaces
  • "Hockey Plus" - an initiative to promote multi-sport
  • The selection of sands for sports surfaces
  • The pros and cons of horizontal drainage systems
  • Standards for the construction of bases

The day will be completed with the Dinner in the evening, at the Burleigh Court Hotel nearby, where overnight accommodation is available. The Dinner is a very popular, informal occasion, when delegates will be able to relax and enjoy excellent food, company and entertainment, with comedian Steve Womack.
