Floodlights and Courts Resurfacing.

Dear Members,

As many of you will be aware a new floodlight system will be installed on courts 1 to 8 and courts 1 to 4 will have a root barrier installed, a new layer of tarmacadam laid and the surface replaced.  These works will commence at the end of January and run into late March.

The below dates have been agreed with the suppliers. However, as with all such projects it is impossible to predict the exact schedule and works may not happen within the exact timeframe specified. If there are any changes to the timelines they will be communicated to members as soon as possible.

We appreciate that this will severely limit the amount of tennis members will enjoy during this period. However, these works are absolutely necessary and well overdue.

We would ask that all members be considerate of the limited playing facilities during these times so that all members can still enjoy some court time.

Please also note that a section of the car park will also be cordoned off for the duration of the works and we will send exact details on this early in the New Year.

Some members have suggested that we change how we pay for lights from a pay per play to a flat levy.  The Tennis Committee and the Management Committee are currently investigating both options and any proposed change would be presented to the members for consultation.

We will provide further updates as we approach the commencement of works but should you have any questions please email the office and we will compile an FAQ which will be made available on the Mount Pleasant website in due course.
