The Richmond Tennis Club was formed in the 1960’s and is a private tennis club with nine courts, three of which are converted to an indoor bubble during the winter for year-round play. Richmond Tennis Club shares land with the City of Richmond’s public tennis courts.
The Richmond Tennis Club Board of Directors had been investigating lighting upgrades for their tennis courts to eliminate shadows, reduce glare, and increase the light levels to improve the overall visibility of the ball on the court. The Club was looking to hit an average of 400 lux on playing areas of all courts. The existing lighting on the courts was provided by 1000W metal halide flood lights.
PVL Projects toured the Richmond Tennis Club through the Burkeville public tennis courts, a previous tennis court project completed nearby where 1000W metal halides were replaced with 480W LED fixtures with occupancy sensors and photocells. Controls were a large draw for the Richmond Tennis Club to maximize their energy savings.
