Allett Lawnmowers is looking for the sports pitch which is most in need of a makeover, and is giving amateur teams the chance to renovate their playing surface and transform their club with its new Pitch to Play competition.

Allett and the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) want to recognise the hard work that amateur groundsteams and volunteers are undertaking across the country, often with limited resources and equipment. Pitch
to Play champions amateur groundstaff and gives them the opportunity to renovate the pitches that
they look after, whilst brightening the future for their club.

So if you need a helping hand, go on and ‘make your pitch’ to Allett to get your pitch perfect
by winning an Allett mower and a free visit from the IOG.

Pitch to Play is open to any amateur sports team in the UK that has an under 18s team –
no matter what sport! The only requirement is that the pitch needs some TLC!
Entering Pitch to Play is really easy – simply enter online or download the entry form.
Once you have completed it you can send us photos, video links and anything else that you think will support your entry. (Closing Date for entries 1st December 2017)

We do need to see at least three photos of your pitch and we’d love to see your videos
too – the more creative the better! Remember this competition is for pitches that really
deserve makeovers, make sure you show us exactly why yours does!
