National golf purchasing alliance Golf Management Group is expanding their services to other sporting sectors.
Following a lengthy tender process GMG and the Lawn Tennis Association and have combined to launch the LTA Buying Group.
The service will mirror GMG’s national partnership with golf’s governing bodies in England, Scotland and Wales by providing complimentary access to their service for affiliated clubs, reducing their running costs and helping clubs access the best value services from a broad range of approved suppliers just as GMG has been doing for nearly 10 years in the golf sector.
“This is a fantastic endorsement for us, with over 2,700 affiliated tennis clubs to add to our portfolio purchasing very similar goods and services this is can only be great news for our members. Our aim is to help tennis clubs access the same high-quality service we have honed within the golf sector and assist with their financial sustainability.” states Scott Partington, GMG Director
“During the tennis pilot scheme, we had very positive feedback on Contracts-Manager, our online portal which assists in managing the club’s service and utilities contracts. so we are keen to roll this out following the launch”
GMG is looking to extend these new sporting affiliations and has recently started working with Wales Rugby Union supporting their clubs in reducing costs and look forward to building on this in the near future.
