Additional Capital Expenditure Required for Floodlights and Court Resurfacing Projects

Dear Member,

At the March 2018 Mount Pleasant Lawn Tennis Club Annual General Meeting club members approved capital expenditure of €300,000 to Refurbish & Resurface Tennis Courts 1-4 and install New Floodlights on Tennis Courts 1-8.

There have been some additional and unforeseen but unavoidable expenses associated with safety lights, additional replacement of fences, professional fees and an issue with the base layer and original tarmacadam layer.

As a result the total project is now expected to cost €335,000.

In line with Club rules, and to provide members a chance to ask questions, we are calling an Extraordinary General Meeting to vote on the following:

“To approve additional capital expenditure, as presented at the Extraordinary General Meeting on March 13th 2019, for the refurbishing and resurfacing of Tennis Courts 1-4 and floodlight installation on Courts 1-8”

Please do not hesitate to send us questions in advance of the meeting and we will do our best to answer these. However, we would also ask for your understanding that a significant amount of work and time is going into the project as it comes to the final stages.

The original completion date remains achievable but as with all construction projects it is impossible to predict timelines with exact certainty.

The Tennis Committee, Badminton Committee and Squash Committee would recommend that all members vote to approve the required additional capital expenditure.

The Management Committee
