Dennis and SISIS have announced the date for their popular cricket renovation day for 2018. The event will be held at Cheltenham College on 7 August and those wishing to attend are encouraged to register soon to avoid disappointment.

Since 2011, the Dennis and SISIS series of seminars have seen over 1200 cricket groundsmen in attendance, bringing together volunteers and professionals representing test and 1st class venues, club cricket, schools, colleges and universities. High quality speakers and interesting topics has ensured these seminars quickly gained a reputation as a ‘not to miss event’ with groundstaff travelling considerable distances to be in attendance.

The August event at Cheltenham College, will be a mix of thought provoking indoor presentations and discussions with outside practical demonstrations – with plenty of time built into the programme for speaking with your fellow groundsmen. There will also be a number of high profile, well respected industry sponsors in attendance offering support and advice.

“Following the highly successful seminar held at The Brightside Ground, Bristol in 2017, the decision to return to Gloucestershire to continue our ‘For the groundsmen by the groundsmen’ series of educational seminars was a relatively straightforward one and we hope delegates find the event informative, but above all enjoyable,” commented Roger Moore, sales and marketing manager at Dennis and SISIS.

The day includes a talk on profile reading and an overview on renovations. The morning will finish with a soil core clinic led by turf consultants from St Albans School. After a complimentary lunch, groundsmen can attend two practical sessions; one on end of season renovations and the other on aeration.

The day will end with a question and answer session with a panel of experts.

Attendance to this informative seminar is free and seats are expected to be filled extremely fast.
