sapca awards

Rocklyn Sports received the award during

the SAPCA Conference and Dinner on 5 February. Now in their third year, the SAPCA Awards – organised by the Sports and Play Construction Association (SAPCA) – were launched to celebrate exceptional achievements by the association’s members. Entries are accepted for any achievements

during the year that represent excellence in sports and play facilities, from new products and services to technical innovations and construction projects. According to Chris Trickey, SAPCA chief

executive, the awards showcase the wide range of expertise within the SAPCA membership. “The final list reflected the breadth of knowledge and level of innovation our

members possess. In fact, the high quality of entries for this year’s awards meant that we ended up with a longlist – rather than a shortlist – of finalists.” Trickey added that the success of the SAPCA

Awards – reflected in the increase in the number of entries – means that the 2018 edition will be expanded from its current format. “The SAPCA Awards have now established

their role as a respected mark of excellence within the sector,” he said. “Therefore for 2018, we are expanding the

awards and creating a number of different categories, which will be announced later this year.”
