When the sun goes down..... we switch on the lights.....
But some are better than others.........
Court 4..... Court 13......
So we are starting to raise funds to replace the carpet on courts 9-14 and the old metal halide lights on courts 9, 11 and 13 with LED lights.
Details as follows:
- Project budget ~£50k
- Aim to install by 2025
- LED lights similar to those installed on courts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 14
- Half the running costs of current metal halide lights
- Minimal maintenance costs as each LED panel has ~50,000 hour life
- Our existing lights have served us well but are ageing.....
The cost of the carpets will be covered by the tennis levy fund but we are trying to plan to bring this work forward from the current planned dates of 2024 and 2026, so that we install the new lights and new surface at the same time
Help us to raise funds in the following ways - which are no cost to you:
- Recycling Tennis Balls:
- Every ball put in the recycling bin is worth 30p to the club
- If each member recycled just 12 balls a year - we would recycle over 8000 balls and raise £2500 per year towards our fundraising target
- So please put all your old dry balls in the green recycling bins on courts 1, 4 and 9
- Sign up to Easyfundraising:
- And then shop in the normal way........
- We only have 12 participants at the moment who have raised over £500 in the last three years
- Here is a guide to the Easy fundraising registration process........if you haven't managed to follow the instructions above
- You can also download the Easyfundraising app onto your phone....
