Out with the old lights and in with the new flash LEDs!
Our tennis centre is getting a full lighting upgrade from the old failing incandescent lamps to state of the art LEDs! Therefore, there's no better time to join our club and take advantage of the amazing facelift our tennis facility is getting over the next several months.
The lighting upgrade will also include a full rewiring of the electrical loom/fuse box and a new automated lighting system including the ability to remotely activate court lights for social play. LED lighting technology has moved super fast over the past decade and even faster in just the past 12 months with lumination improvements up to 40% whilst at the same time installation costs reducing by a similar amount making LED lighting for sports and recreation centres a very affordable, and some would say necessary option.
Not only will these new lights illuminate the courts by up to 5 x brighter than current levels (bringing it up to 350 LUX average across the total playing surface) it will also save our club over 50% in electricity consumption. These savings in power costs will then be re-invested back into the club!
Funding for the Caboolture & District Lawn Tennis Association's lighting upgrade has been provided by:
- Queensland State Government - Get Playing Spaces & Places initiative;
- MBRC - Committed funding contribution plus and interest-free loan to our club; and
- Caboolture Tennis Club's own savings.
Our Tennis Club is extremely grateful for the support provided by the Local and State Governments. Support from Local and State Members is also greatly appreciated, so too, the support given from Tennis QLD and many others.
Installation of the new LED lights is expected to start in July this year (2017) and be fully completed within 12 weeks - hopefully, sooner. So, don't be shy and contact us now to become a Club Member and play fixtures or book in for a social hit everyone from beginners to advanced is welcome!
