The Pitch Advisory Service, formerly the Grounds and Natural Turf Improvement Programme, was launched in 2014 and is funded by Sport England and the Football Foundation, working in association with the ECB, RFL and RFU.
With the addition of RFL and RFU, Phase 3 has seen the programme grown considerably; led by Chief Operating Officer, Jason Booth, the team now consists of four Key Account Managers, one Programmes Support Lead, elevenRegonal Pitch Advisors and one Administrator. The aim of the PAS is to raise the standards of sports surfaces as well as the understanding of sports turf management practices among grassroots sports clubs across England.
