The new telescopic floodlights have been installed and are fully operational. These
state of the art Floodlights cost approximately £150,000 and with court resurfacing
the club has invested over £250,000. To aid this development the club received generous
grants from Cleanaway and grants and loans from the LTA. These lights are almost
unique as there is currently only one other club in the country using this system
which offers 1st class artificial light for tennis. This will mean Tuesday league
and Friday Social tennis will continue right through the winter as will the usual
week night practices, squads and private bookings.
Floodlighting is available on Courts 4 - 7.
The floodlights are available for use week day evenings from 3pm until 9pm and up
until 6pm at weekends (because of planning restrictions on usage).
The cost will be £8 per court per hour which is necessary to to ensure the correct
maintenance can be carried out and the loans repaid. On Friday social nights
Tokens are available from the bar on Tuesday and Friday evenings at a cost of £4
It should be noted that play is only permitted in hourly or half hourly slots.
Eg if you have a court booked from 7pm until 8pm you must be there to put your token
in before 7pm. This is because once the floodlights have gone out it will not be
possible to restart them for 10 mins.
