NEW LIGHTING EVENT - A SUCCESS
Mackay Tennis recently held our "LED Lighting Unveiling" at our fantastic Kippen St Complex (Sept 2019).
This came after a challenging start to 2018 with prior Lighting Contractors. Overcoming some hurdles, Mackay Tennis and in particular our Vice-President Creagh Bagnall continued to rally and develop a new plan in delivering the fantastic LED Lights.
These lights came to fruition and border our courts 1-8, offering outstanding light quality for members and social players.
With completion of this project in (achieved: Sept 2019) our tennis playing community is fortunate enough to have some great quality lights now and into the future.
To celebrate the unveiling was held being co-ordinated by our treasurer/patron Joyce. it was simply an excellent event with our local Mayor Greg Williamson completing the ribbon cutting/switching on of lights.
In attendance was the Simon + Team from Lighting Technology International; Nick from Tennis QLD; Life Members, players and MORE!
We look forward to seeing many players enjoying the new lights in 2019.
Mackay Tennis have been successful in acquiring the following grants; Better Community Facilities Grant – Mackay Regional Council $120,000 (April 2017) for lights, National Court Rebate Scheme $10,000 (August 2017) for courts and Stronger Communities Program $14,500 (November 2017) for our kitchen.
New courts (Sept 2016)
Great news, all 13 courts have been resurfaced in rebound synpave and are ready now for play.
