Expert guidance for athletics

Helping you to make better choices throughout your athletics' project journey

Building or refurbishing an athletics track can be a difficult task, particularly if you haven’t done it before. It is important to make the right decisions on track surface, perimeter fencing, changing facilities and much more – and to understand how those decisions could affect your chances of funding.

That’s why people turn to SAPCA. We can help you to make the better choices at every stage of your project – funding, designing, building and maintaining – to ensure a successful project. We also have a list of verified with the experience and know-how to deliver the installation you need, with confidence.
