East Lismore Tennis Club wanted to upgrade the existing lights at their courts to LED. Currently the lighting is patchy and is difficult for players to see.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the old flood lights caused issues for neighbours, who had lights shining into their yards and houses.
“High participation rates and a great network of juniors allows competitions to be played five days a week,” Mr Hogan said.
“It was great to join members of the East Lismore Tennis Club to announce $20,000 to assist this project. The tennis club also put forward $40,000.”
“Converting to LED court lighting will provide a better playing atmosphere and will save power bills for the club.”
“Participation numbers are expected to exceed 400 this year. This upgrade will ensure growth continues.”
