Project Throwback – Alsager Tennis Club

In this post we look back on a project that our hardworking team were proud to work on. Alsager Tennis Club were in desperate need of a complete overhaul to their ageing floodlight system.

Surfacelux were approached by Alsager Tennis club back in 2020 to look at their floodlighting system. Our team had identified high running costs and existing lights that were underperforming as two of the main factors to recommend a full upgrade. The green box lights that had been in use for the majority of time were amongst the worst engineered of any floodlights designed for sports use. Thankfully, existing lighting columns for the twin court block were in positions that could be utilized so these courts only required new bracketry and floodlight luminaires.

There was one than one court in place at the premises. So the team were also asked to look at and cost for a new install to these additional courts within the existing block, which was being completely overlaid with a new synthetic carpet surface. Our proposed solution was for a Philips LED floodlight system using the existing columns and mounting heights already in place. Philips are well known as market leaders in both on and off court floodlight performance and their products are coupled with a manufacturer’s backed warranty. We undertook complete design work and then submission was made to the local authorities, and with no opposition, the materials were sourced and the equipment was installed as per our designs.

All in all this was a fabulous end result for a club with an ever-growing membership and increased demand for illuminated courts in the darker months.
