Thornton Sports provide help and advice at The Sports Facility Show

Building new or refurbished sports facilities is a complex process, and making the right decisions to ensure the facility meets all your requirements whilst maximising how far the budget will go can be daunting. We were delighted to take part in this week’s Sports Facility Show in Leeds which offered information, resources and advice to anyone involved in the development of sports facilities.

Over 120 people attended the one-day event which took place at Leeds United FC on Tuesday 17th June. Hosted by The Sports and Play Construction Association, the exhibition offered information on the latest developments, expert advice, and seminars covering topics such as:

Funding for sports projects
Promoting play in Yorkshire
Current trends and developments in synthetic turf systems
The Centenary Fields Programme
Maintenance of synthetic sports surfaces
Workshop: How to use social media to drive footfall to your sports facility
Raising the standards of sports turf
The selection of outdoor sports equipment
The design of multi use games areas
Effective marketing to attract and retain participants for your sports facility
Non-traditional structures for indoor sport
Outdoor sports lighting
How to deliver a successful project
Open meeting: The future of athletics facilities
Open meeting: RIBA sports client forum

Sports Clubs, Schools, Leisure Operators and Local Authorities visited the Thornton Sports stand, and we enjoyed discussing their plans with them. The next Sports Facility Show will be taking place on Tuesday 28th October at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, Motherwell. Why not come and join us? We’d love to catch up with you there.
