SAPCA’s Codes of Practice summarise the current requirements of installation and maintenance across a range of sports surfaces and associated equipment, including input the relevant governing body and relevant standards where appropriate.

Download the appropriate Code of Practice for up-to-date information to ensure competence, understanding and best practice installation and maintenance.

Remember, these documents are intended as a guide to ensure standards and quality from SAPCA members. They are not designed to form part of a contract or to be used as specification in their own right.

Every project is different; it is important to carry out appropriate surveys and obtain professional advice, including confirming whether there are any technical requirements related to funding provision.
