We have now got planning permission for the replacement of the tennis court floodlights! The project will involve the removal of the existing lights and columns, with eight new columns being positioned in the corners of the courts, four lights per court. The new lights should be considerably brighter than the existing ones, a lot more reliable and also cheaper to run.
We have just submitted our application for funding to Middlesex Tennis. We hope that we will get an interest free loan for most of the cost, which would allow us to spread the payment for the lights over several years. If/when we get funding from Middlesex Tennis, we can finalise arrangements with the chosen contractor, including sorting out when the works will take place and how they will be scheduled so that there is minimum disruption.
