The current halogen based floodlights will be replaced with energy efficient LED lights during the weeks starting Monday 23rd and Tuesday 31st August. This will save the club money for both energy and maintenance costs.
During this period there will be inevitable disruption to the availability of courts during the day.
We expect to be able to keep 3 courts available during the daytime (with club sessions and group coaching sessions having priority) and with all courts being open in the evenings and the intermediate weekend.
The courts will be worked on 1-3 one week and 4-6 the other week. The flood lights will not be available in the evenings or the intermediate weekend on the courts that are being worked on first.
We apologise for the disruption and request that you are flexible and patient with us during this period. We are sure that the benefits for the members will be worth the upheaval.
