    How to stay safe on a sports pitch


    You need to know how to stay safe on a sports pitch to avoid accidents

    Staying safe in a public place is, to some degree, our personal responsibility. Looking where you’re going and avoiding dangerous situations should be a natural instinct. How many of us have walked into a lamppost when distracted by something on our mobile phone? If you play sports regularly then you also need to know how to stay safe on a sports pitch.

    Personal safety

    Sports pitches come in all shapes and sizes from a large grassed area to a badminton court in a leisure centre. If you plan to use a sports pitch it’s always a good idea to check out the terrain and equipment first.

    Many leisure centres have large indoor pitches for activities such as circuit training or aerobics classes. Checking to see that the equipment you’re about to use is in good order, can save you from a fall or other injury.

    Has someone spilled a drink in one of these areas? This could cause you to slip and sprain an ankle or wrist. Broken glass out on a sports field could cause serious cuts and wounds. Always have a look around, it can save you from getting hurt. Knowing how to stay safe on a sports pitch can help you avoid injury.
