LEDs deliver ace lighting for new tennis centre

Lighting for this £1.2 million tennis centre in Portsmouth is delivered by LED technology in luminaires made by Luxonic. It is next to the Mountbatten Sports Centre and was formally opened by former British number-one tennis player Greg Rusedski and council dignitaries. The project was funded by the Lawn Tennis Association and Portsmouth City Council.

Luxonic’s Hi-Max LED was installed in the sports hall. This range of luminaires is designed for mounting at heights of up to 18 m in large open areas. High-power Osram LEDs enable these luminaires to work at increased heights, and the options of surface or suspended mounting enable the scheme to be incorporated into existing ceiling systems.

The efficiency of these luminaires is further increased by the option of the DALI control system to enable them to respond to changes in natural light levels. DALI controls can also be programmed to turn off lights automatically after the infra-red motion detectors register a certain period of inactivity.

The new centre has four full-size indoor courts and six outdoor courts. There are also eight mini courts inside.

Jo Dallas, centre manager at the complex, commented, ‘We were looking for an efficient lighting system. It is great the way the lighting reacts to the brightness outside and adjusts its lux levels accordingly. The system is very easy to use, and there are various ways the lights can be set according to your needs. The LEDs have certainly been cost effective, which has been seen in our energy bills. I would certainly recommend similar lighting to other facilities.’
