PROJECT CASE STUDY

Thongsbridge Tennis Club

When it opened just after the end of World War 1, Thongsbridge Tennis Club had just two grass courts, a wooden pavilion, and an outside toilet on its seven-acre site.

It has now grown and has: Four acrylic courts, Seven all-weather outdoor courts, and, two tarmac mini courts.

One of the most dynamic, forward-thinking, and growing clubs in the North East, Thongsbridge has also welcomed international stars such as Illie Nastase, Martina Hingis, and Pat Cash.

The challenge

As a growing club, Thongsbridge needed to make sure it was able to maximise the use of all its courts to fulfil the demands of its members and to capitalise on revenue opportunities. It also needed to meet the full standards set by the Lawn Tennis Association.

Our solution

Working with our partner Energy Oasis, who completed the installation, we designed a lighting scheme that meant the new floodlights could be retrofitted to the existing structures at the club. Combined with a new control solution, the floodlighting not only met the club’s challenges, it helped save energy and money too.
