Glenorchy City Tennis Club lights up

THE Glenorchy City Tennis Club will shine bright thanks to funding from the 2019-20 Sport and Recreation Major Grants Program that will assist fund a lighting project.

The club secured $80,000 from the program as well as additional funding via the Glenorchy City Council as the facility owner.

The need for improved lighting came after club users experienced difficult and unsafe night play due to the lack of adequate court lighting.

The lighting project involved the replacement of the wooden lighting poles, which were unsafe due to rotting, with new metal base-hinge retractable light pole systems, and new directional lights and reflectors.

The quality, colour, intensity and uniformity of the lights provide consistency of lighting across all playing surfaces and the retractable light pole system provides significant benefits when replacing lights or undertaking maintenance.

This will benefit all participants who use the court and improve the overall playing experience.

The new lights will also enable the club to continue to host the Glenorchy Open Tournament, as well as have facilities to a standard available for hosting Australian Seniors Tennis and the Australian Masters Games.
