To improve groundsmanship across the county at recreational level, the Hampshire County Groundsmanship Association (#HantsCGA) was formed in June 2012.  This followed the launch of the ECB Pitch Advisory Scheme.

Membership of HantsCGA is free to all groundsmen of affiliated clubs who have registered their details with us. The only information required is the member's name and email contact details.  You can Join #HantsCGA by clicking the button below.

Membership provides a number of benefits including:

  • Advice and assistance from Chris Westbrook (Hampshire County Pitch Advisor) and where required the ECB/IoG Regional Pitch Advisor
  • Information on #HantsCGA and Institute of Groundsmanship (IoG) courses and activities via regular newsletters (which will also appear below once confirmed)
