UJSportslabs recently hosted the first short learning programme regarding the Maintenance of synthetic turf surfaces at the University of Johannesburg. The programme aimed to provide candidates with the necessary knowledge, skills and insights required to assess and conduct the necessary maintenance required on various synthetic surfaces. The course was a great success and included local speakers as well as speakers from Scotland and Germany. The feedback thus far has been very positive, with UJSportslabs looking to host the short learning programme in Cape Town next year as well.
