Floodlights Officially Opened!

Share this

SMTC celebrated the official opening of its super new LED floodlights last week, with the official 'Switch On' performed by East Herts District Council Vice Chairman Ian Devonshire, and Great Amwell Councillor Alexander Curtis.

Generous donations from EHDC, Stanstead Abbotts Parish Council, and Herts LTA all contributed to the efforts spanning several years to raise the  £30,000 needed, and it was great to welcome representatives from those bodies to join us on our special night.

With all 3 courts now lit with energy efficient LED technology (yes, we're listening Greta Thunberg!) the club is really looking forward to maximising court time over the dark winter months ahead.
