Rugby Pitch Maintenance

An appropriate maintenance programme will enable your club to provide a higher quality pitch for your players. It will also create an increased pitch carrying capacity to enable more of them to play more often each week.

Check out the videos and downloadable resources from RFU Head Groundsman Keith Kent, below, which we believe can help you to deliver a better pitch maintenance programme.

 

Club consultations

Keith Kent will visit approximately 100 community rugby clubs per season to provide advice and guidance on the maintenance of their natural turf pitches. Visits last for approximately one hour and are followed up by a detailed report compiled by Keith, specific to the issues identified during the visit. The visits will be coordinated on a rotational regional basis and are completely free of charge to clubs.
