At last we have been able to double up the floodlights on the old double tennis court. Our new court at the front of the site already has 6KW of lighting on a single court to match LTA recommendations. The older double court has only had 4KW across the 2 courts for the past 20 years, but at last we have been able to put double headers on each of the existing 4 stanchions to give 8KW, to greatly improve the lighting on these 2 courts.
Thanks go to Exclusive Leisure Ltd who installed the original floodlights and also the recent upgrade. This project was funded largely by a grant from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, a loan from Leicestershire and Rutland Playing Fields Association and funds from Desford Lawn Tennis Club and smaller contributions from Desford Parish Council and from SiD.
