The 2017 Racecourse Groundstaff Awards

The RCA is delighted to invite you to submit your entry for the 2017 Racecourse Groundstaff Awards, sponsored by Pitchcare, Watt Fences and Fornells.

As in previous years, there are individual awards for Groundstaff at the racecourses judged to be the best Flat, Jump and Dual Purpose tracks. Each of the winning racecourses will receive a monetary prize and a momento to keep.

In addition to the winners in the individual categories, one of these three Groundstaff teams will be named overall champions as decided by the sponsors. The overall champion will be announced at the 2017 Showcase Awards Ceremony which will take place at Newbury Racecourse on 16 November. This brings together the two major sets of awards that recognise excellence and innovation on racecourses.

Once again, a standard entry form has been developed, and this is available to download here. Your entry should cover the period October 2016 to September 2017, and you may attach additional sheets and photographs if you wish to do so.

For your entry to be considered, it must be provided to groundstaffawards@racecourseassociation.co.uk by Friday 15 September 2017. Only those racecourses who enter a submission will come under consideration by the panel.

Please contact Holly Cook for further information.
