SAPCA (The Sports and Play Construction Association) is the latest organisation to start working with Saje Impact as it looks to raise its profile and marketing offer to its members by engaging with its external stakeholders.

SAPCA is a trade association that represents businesses committed to raising the quality standards of all sports, physical activity, recreation and play facilities that are designed, built and maintained across the UK. SAPCA helps funders, owners, operators and users avoid the hoops, hurdles and high jumps of sport facility funding, construction, management and development.

Over 250 corporate members have a direct involvement in the development of sports and play facilities – from contractors, manufacturers and suppliers to consultants, test laboratories, sports governing bodies and related organisations.

Andy Reed said:

Our sports sector is so wide and varied and sometimes important elements get left out of decision making and funding. Sports businesses make a great contribution to the sector and to the British economy and I am looking forward to working with SAPCA in raising the standards of construction in the sector as policy increasingly understands the needs for greater and modern facilities as part of the good sports mix for consumers. I am also keen to help the sector innovate around new technology and the integration of new ideas.

With the government's new sports strategy and a greater focus from NGBs on facilities this the perfect time for a partnership in the sector with SAPCA.
