With Birmingham Alexander Stadium hosting more diamond league events;  this year Athletics Direct was given an order to replace their main Hammer cage netting as well as a large amount of their existing equipment which included 110 x competition Hurdles, 12 x hurdle trolleys, Pole vault uprights, scoreboards, various throws equipment and a high jump bed’ Matt Brown the deputy facility manager said:

“This was the first time we use AD and we would 100% recommend them to other athletics clubs and tracks. They worked with us to ensure we got the high-quality equipment we needed on time for hosting diamond league events and offered excellent customer service from start to finish. We would be happy to use them again in the future
