MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT

It is with great excitement that we advise court lights are now fully operational and you are welcome to access them. LED lighting has been installed on 2 courts, providing a superior lighting and a fantastic experience of nighttime tennis.

We are keeping the cost of the lights VERY LOW initially at only $5 per hour.  

We are also pleased to advise that the costs for installing the lights have NOT come from membership fees. The lights have been funded through a combination of grants, donations, and a low-interest loan from Tennis Australia. The committee has worked very hard to secure various grants of nearly $40,000, donations of over $6,000. The loan from Tennis Australia will be repaid by income from the lights which the committee estimates will be repaid in two to four years. After that time, the club will be earning money from the lights which will be able to go to other projects to help the club.

How to use the lights:

At present we are using a key to switch on the lights. The key will be kept in a key safe located on the court near the lightbox. To obtain the code for the key safe, you will need to text the committee via WhatsApp to obtain the current combination (this will be changed regularly) and deposit $5 cash for using the lights in the fee box on the court. Once you have finished playing, please return the key to the key safe for others to use. The charge for non-members is $10 per hour – this money can also be deposited in the fee box.

Thursday night social tennis night:

We will also be running a regular Thursday night social tennis night for members and non-members. Find out more here.

If you have any questions about this or other club matters, please feel free to contact us.

Enjoy the new lights and Happy Hitting!
