In the third issue of 2024, we deep dive into the England Athletics’ 12-year strategy to grow the sport and look at the results the NGB’s approach has yielded so far. There is also an interview with England women’s rugby legend, Maggie Alphonsi, who highlights why role models are hugely important for getting people from disadvantaged backgrounds to try out sports.

We also look at why a proper maintenance regime is essential to ensure a playing surface remains safe, while also maximising the return of investment made in the facility.

In his column, Richard Shaw, SAPCA CEO, outlines why choosing a SAPCA member for a facility project is a guarantee of quality.

“The desire of SAPCA members to hold themselves accountable to standards – and the scrutiny that comes with the approach – is a perfect example of why the SAPCA membership badge is valued so highly.”
