Free to attend Rugby Turf Workshop

The Members Lounge, Twickenham Stadium

January 24, 2019

You will be aware of the growing interest and uptake among independent schools in Artificial Grass Pitches for Rugby (Rugby Turf). Indeed, you may already be considering the viability of such a facility at your school. Whatever your current situation and ambitions we’d like to answer some of the questions you may have regarding Rugby Turf Pitches.

With the invaluable support of FieldTurf, World Rugby, Queen Ethelburga’s, Salesian College and the Harlequins Foundation we have created a varied and interesting agenda and panel of speakers which will address a range of important issues, including;

  • Facility Design & Planning: Ben O’Connor, S&C Slatter, Head of Pre-Construction
  • The World Rugby Programme: Marc Douglas, World Rugby Research Turf & Equipment Manager
  • Rugby Turf Technology: Paul Fraser, FieldTurf, Regional Business Director
  • Operating a Rugby Turf Facility: Ben Grigor, Queen Ethelburga’s, Grounds Manager
  • Creating a Development Plan: Robert Lougee, Salesian College Bursar
