1. Set up your PitchPower account

Complete from the comfort of your own home

  • Sign up here
  • Find your organisation from the dropdown list
  • Locate the ground(s) you maintain
  • Add all the pitches you maintain at the ground(s)
  • To get ahead, have to hand:
    • Details of the maintenance equipment you currently use
    • Your annual budget for maintenance/renovation
    • List of standard maintenance activities you carry out
    • Info on training courses you've completed 
    • Pitch cancellations/usage info

Top Tip - We recommend you complete all of Step 1 before going out onto the pitch. That way, you can make sure you have added all the details you need to carry out the pitch inspection.

2. Carry out your pitch inspection

  • Head out to the pitch. Make sure you have a spade or a soil sampler, a tape measure and a camera phone with you.
  • Using your phone, go to PitchPower and sign in to complete a pitch inspection 
  • Complete an inspection for the pitches you maintain at your ground. If you have up to 6, you need need to complete an inspection for each. If you have more, please see here

TOP TIP - More than one of you can complete pitch inspections at the same ground. To do this, just get them to create their own PitchPower account and make sure they choose the same Organisation as you. 

PitchPower assessment report

3. Submit your info and receive your report

  • Submit your completed inspection before the window deadline 
  • The Grounds Management Association (GMA) will review the information and assess the quality of your pitches
  • You will receive an assessment report within 21 days
  • This will provide practical recommendations for how you can improve the quality of your grass pitches. For example, applying for funding or taking a training course.

Three submission windows:

September - October 

November - March 

April - June

Your inspection needs to be submitted before the window closes, so aim to do it as early as you can. The first submission deadline is Saturday 31 October

There must be four weeks between submissions.
