Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Saints among IOG award winners for groundskeeping

By Tom Walker    05 Nov 2019
This year's winners were announced across 20 different categories / IOG

Groundskeeping teams at English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and Premiership rugby side Northampton Saints are among the winners of this year's Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) awards.

The awards celebrate the quality standards of grounds care achieved in public and private sports venues and highlight the progress of young/student grounds professionals – as well as entrants’ environmental considerations.

In all, winners were announced across 20 different categories.

IOG chief executive Geoff Webb said: "We've enjoyed a glorious year of professional sport, especially a summer of outstanding cricket, and this has highlighted the crucial role played by high-class playing surfaces – and, therefore, also our superb grounds care skills.

“Our awards also acknowledge the unstinting work of the army of volunteers who maintain grassroots pitches up and down the country, often on very limited budgets, to enable players of all abilities and ages to enjoy sport on well-prepared pitches."
