The club already had an existing floodlighting system in place, However, they were after an LED alternative to enhance the playing experience, reduce operational costs and minimise any environmental impact.


  • 16 x 1000W Challenger 1 LED floodlights

Abacus completed an LED re-head on the old installation, installing 16 Challenger 1 LED floodlights which achieved LTA specification for the lighting. As part of the retrofit works, a structural assessment of the existing columns took place prior to installation.

The introduction of advanced LED technology has dramatically improved the playing experience for members.

With superior illumination and colour rendering, the courts now offer optimal visibility during evening matches, enabling players to perform at their best regardless of the time. Beyond enhancing gameplay, the new Challenger 1 LED floodlights contribute to the club’s sustainability efforts. The energy-efficient LEDs significantly reduce power consumption, leading to cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint, alongside minimising light spill to the surrounding area.

As a result, the Wincanton Tennis Club has not only embraced cutting-edge technology but also reaffirmed its commitment to environmental responsibility while enriching the tennis experience for all members.
