Court Lighting Guide

To switch on the lights, please open the green cabinet outside the clubhouse (the padlock code is the same as the courts). There are 3 keypads (one for each court), simply enter the lighting code (*) on the keypad for your booked court and this will activate the lights for 60 minutes. You can re-enter the code at any time to provide a further 60' from that point. Please note that entering the code again does not switch off the lights, instead it simply re-starts the clock for another 60'!

When the lights switch off, one lamp above your court will remain on for 5' to enable a safe exit and locking. The courtesy light near the clubhouse will also remain on for 10'. Please do not forget to lock the lighting cabinet.

(*) the code is included in the confirmation email which you receive when booking a court


Lighting Fees

From January 1st 2024, an hourly charge for the lights will apply to evening bookings. The cost will be kept as low as possible and will cover the electricity usage, the ongoing maintenance or repairs and the build up of reserves for future replacement (in 30 years!).

The Committee has decided that the hourly cost required to achieve this will be £4 per court, which is consistent with what other clubs charge. However, in an effort to continue to promote the use of our new lights, we are offering a special rate of £2 per hour for Spring 2024.

For evening court bookings after January 1st, the system or app will show a charge of £1 per 30 minute slot, which can be paid by debit or credit card when confirming the booking. 

The charging times will be based on daylight hours: it will be from 4pm in January, 5pm in February, 6pm in March and 8pm in April (clocks go forward 1 hour on 31st March).
