Tennis Dome Lighting

To all Dome  users,

Re – lights Blackburn Northern Indoor Courts

As you are all aware the club has encountered a problem with the lighting system for the indoor courts.

The Dome management felt it was only right that users were updated with the situation.

You will have noticed that the lights are inter­mit­tently failing. Sometimes we can have 7 of the 8 lights working and on some days only 5. Our electrical contractor has advised us that the whole lighting system needs replacing. This will be a major expenditure for the club but obviously the lights have to be put right as soon as practically possible.

As a result we are taking this opportunity to investigate changing to LED lighting. The use of them for indoor courts which are lit by uplighters, is however, very new technology. At the moment we are in discussion with various lighting companies and the LTA with regard to the possi­bili­ties open to us.

We are also inves­tigating whether we can carry out some kind of temporary repair to the lights that are inter­mit­tently failing.

We are aware that this is not an ideal situation and will keep you informed of future devel­op­ments.

If you wish to discuss this situation further please contact Ian Broughton on 07710 958229 (outside of working hours).
