Thornton Sports take part in the SAPCA 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 Coventry which offered  information, resources and advice to anyone involved in the development of  sports facilities.

Over 150 delegates attended the one-day event which took place at  Ricoh Arena on Thursday 27th 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:

  • Keynote: Building a Sporting Legacy
