Boldon Lawn Tennis Club has been at the heart of Boldon since 1886. With 6 outdoor courts, this family friendly club caters for all levels of tennis from grassroots to competitive tennis.

To ensure the tennis club provides the best facilities possible for its members, they reached out to Powerplus Group to aid with a lighting upgrade. The brief was simple; install high output energy efficient lighting, to increase the clubs’ playing hours, while reducing their energy bills & carbon footprint.

The first phase of the project, saw 3 of the 6 courts illuminated with BELL Skyline Elite Asymmetric Floodlights. As the tennis club is located in a small village, there were inevitably restrictions in place with regards to lighting spillage. The BELL Skyline Elite Asymmetric floodlight was chosen to alleviate any light trespass and glare into the surrounding properties.

Due to the layout of the tennis club, 2 of the 3 courts were illuminated using a standard corner/side lit scheme. The remaining court presented a few more challenges, as lighting could only be installed at one side of the court. The Skyline Elite Asymmetric Floodlights made “light” work of this and easily achieved the recommended LTA lighting level.
