Firstly: UL Tennis Club, UL Playing Staff and UL Tennis public users have been asking for years for maintenance to be carried out on the UL Tennis courts surface. At this moment in time the courts surface conditions are appalling, they flood with the least little rain fall, leaving behind black smudge that when played on could cause serious injuries, injuries that aren't supposed to occur while playing Tennis. Basically the drainage on the courts is improper blocked. With some maintenance could easily be solved. We have seen in particular our female members fall on this surface and injure themselves.
Secondly: UL Tennis Club and UL playing Staff have been asking for Floodlights, particularly UL Tennis Club - this affects our club majorly and has done so since the club was formed in 2008. We cannot train passed 5pm in winter months, this is unfair to our very talented members who have Lectures and Tutorials up until 6pm. All other Universities have proper lighting facilities, UCC for example train from 7pm-11.30pm at night. We entered our very first Varsity last year as a club and won the plate, this Varsity was hosted by UCC, with proper facilities we could train more and even host our own Varsities here in UL.
Please sign this petition if you agree that it's about time these facilities were improved..!!
