Harden-based STRI has been shortlisted in two categories of the inaugural Sports Technology Awards.

The firm is among the finalists in the sections for best technology in a single sport and use of technology by a governing body.

The sports turf consultancy was shortlisted in recognition of its innovative Trueness Meter, which accurately measures the smoothness and trueness of golf greens.

Chief executive, Gordon McKillop, said: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted, especially with the calibre of finalists being very high.

“What the Trueness Meter has achieved in a relatively short period of time is nothing short of revolutionary.”

STRI, based on the St Ives estate, will discover at an awards ceremony in London on April 4 if it is amongst the winners.
