Dennis and SISIS Groundsmans’ Seminar at the Emirates Riverside Stadium Durham

A packed, enthusiastic audience of groundsmen attended the spring Dennis and SISIS seminar at the Emirates Stadium in Durham.

The latest seminar in the series, from organisers and main sponsors Dennis and SISIS, saw a number of excellent speakers and also ground care suppliers on show – Vic Demain (Head Groundsman at the Riverside) Ian Powell (IOG Regional Pitch advisor), Dave Leighton (ECB Club programmes manager) and Chris Wood (ECB pitch Consultant) amongst the speakers covering topics from pitch rolling to spring renovation on a budget.

Everyone also got the opportunity to go out onto the ground to see the playing surface of a Test cricket venue.
