NEW Dennis & SISIS Virtual Bowls Seminar

A new Dennis and SISIS Virtual Bowling Green Maintenance Seminar Portal is proving to be an invaluable free online resource for bowls greenkeepers and volunteers.

For over 20 years, Dennis and SISIS have been organising and hosting educational maintenance seminars for grounds managers and greenkeepers across a variety of sectors up and down the country at various venues and overseas. 

In particular, the companies have a long history of supporting the sport of bowls and the seminars, which are designed to ultimately help club greenkeepers and volunteers maintain their bowling greens, have significantly grown year on year.

Inevitably, the Covid-19 pandemic brought the seminars to a temporary halt but Dennis and SISIS remained determined to still connect and engage with the bowls greenkeeping community. Plans were quickly put in place and using the latest technology, the Dennis and SISIS Virtual Bowling Green Maintenance Seminar Portal was launched in October last year.

The free online portal was an instant success bringing seminars to a much wider audience and nearly a year on the portal membership continues to grow above all expectations. 

On the portal, members have access to regular, updated video seminar sessions on a wide range of relevant topics written and hosted by expert speakers. At the click of a button, users can also ask questions to the various experts and tap into their vast amount of experience and knowledge. Other resources on the portal include downloadable PDF’s containing seminar content, case studies, more informative videos, links to key products and vital information on funding. 

Furthermore, to celebrate the success of the portal, Dennis and SISIS recently launched a competition which would offer three bowls clubs an opportunity to improve the standard of their greens through a free bowling green consultation. 

Over 500 clubs entered the competition and Sunbury Sports Bowls Club in Surrey, Penistone & District Bowling Club in South Yorkshire and Barton Park in Lincolnshire were the three winning clubs selected at random. 

The prize saw renowned turf expert Alan Lewis visit each of the three clubs to carry out an in-depth consultation on the greens and provide each with an invaluable maintenance report and recommended improvements. 

As a featured expert on the Dennis and SISIS seminar portal, Alan revealed his delight at playing a key role. 

“I am amazed that so many clubs, both flat green and crown green, from England, Scotland and Wales, have already signed up to it,” he said. “I’m getting some good questions and I think it is going to keep growing and growing. From our side, we have got to keep providing relevant content that will really make a difference.”

Dennis and SISIS Sales and Marketing Manager, Roger Moore, who has been instrumental in the development of the portal, agreed. 

“It has been incredible to see so many clubs making use of the seminar portal. Originally, the purpose of the portal was to continue to offer support and education to the bowls greenkeeping community during the pandemic. However, it has grown to a point where we are now connecting with a wider audience helping even more greenkeepers and volunteers to build on their knowledge and improve their playing surfaces. With this in mind, we are absolutely committed to continuing with and growing the free seminar portal.

 “The portal continues to be updated regularly with unique new content and we always welcome questions, feedback and suggestions on any potential topics. We’re always here to help.”
