Using the KORO FTM in tennis and cricket is becoming increasingly popular, and Sutton Upon Derwent Tennis Club has already seen the outstanding results that can be achieved, as volunteer groundsman George Hobson explains.

“I first met Ben Taylor from Campey at Wimbledon’s Grass Court Seminar in August 2019, and they had machinery on the courts there including the Koro® FTM® which looked amazing. So after meeting Ben, I asked him if he knew of anyone who had a Koro® in our area because it would be interesting to see what price they’d charge to help us out. Campey very kindly came back and said they would do a renovation demo day on the tennis courts, so that’s how it started.

“The tennis courts at the club have never really had a renovation, so the thatch was like a sponge. The quality of the courts wasn’t there because of that, but the Koro® did the job we needed to take the thatch away, and the use of the Vredo seeder and Uni-Scratch® prepared the seedbed perfectly to allow for very high germination rates.”

As well as the machinery side of maintenance other speakers will be presenting on their own specialist subjects including;

Phil Blackwell – Director – SISPitches / SISGrass
Neil Stubley – Head of Courts and Horticulture – All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club
Danny Negus – Head Groundsman – Devonshire Park
Dan Lightfoot – Business Manager UK & Ireland – Syngenta
Andy MacKay – Pitch Advisor – England & Wales Cricket Board
