Feedback Required from Groundsmen and Women

Partner of North Riding FA, The Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG), is currently conducting research through a survey to assess the conditions in which groundsmen/women and greenkeepers are operating, in addition to the contribution it makes to sport and the economy.

The IOG is a membership organisation representing the whole of the grounds-care industry and all those involved in it. They will present the outcomes of their research to decision-makers at organisations across sport, local/national government and funding organisations, as well as making it available across the sector.

To support this work, we are asking all groundsmen/women and greenkeepers, both employed and volunteers, to complete a survey below.


All information provided will be treated in strict confidence and no individual responses will be disclosed. The responses will be viewed only by IOG staff and research contractors for the purposes of the research project.
