Sports Turf Association NSW


The Sports Turf Association NSW is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the development and professionalism of sports turf management.

STA NSW is a representative body for all sports-turf related workers and allied trades. Our members are from a variety of sports turf venues, including sports stadiums, golf courses, bowling greens, private schools and councils.

The Association is managed by a voluntary team of committee members who are dedicated to providing knowledge, resources and ongoing education and networking opportunities for its members. The committee is elected by the members of the Association and represents both active greenkeepers and representatives from industry-based organisations. All committee members work on a voluntary basis and meet once a month.


STA NSW conducts a variety of events throughout the year, including seminars and workshops. The purpose of these events is to encourage professional development, learn about industry changes, and network with others in the sports turf industry. Some of the events include a hands-on approach to specific subjects such as cricket wickets, sports field renovations, disease and weed and pest management. In addition to educational events, STA NSW also runs social days such as an annual golf day. All event information can be found on our website.
