The courts at Borough Park have always had floodlights but they were old, underpowered and as a result rarely used because it was so hard to see the ball! But today, a momentous day for the club, we had new lights installed!!!
After a lot of research into the best options for modern cost-effective lighting, discussions with South Hams District Council, patience and more patience… today the contractors, Sports Lighting, turned up and installed a new lighting system!! This involved replacing the light fittings at the top of the poles with high powered lighting and installing new wiring.
First task was getting the Cherry Picker into the court area without dismantling the fence… tricky but they did it!
Then it was up and up to the top of the poles to begin the complex upgrading.
Now we just need to wait for autumn to come and the nights to draw in and the courts will be buzzing with activity all through the dark winter days!
Huge thanks to Sports Lighting and of course to SHDC for funding the new lights.
