Oakham Tennis Club needs floodlights
Tennis is an all year round activity and is a great sport for young and old. The benefits to health, all round body fitness and socially are considerable. Oakham Lawn Tennis Club has great facilities but lacks one critically important thing: Floodlights. This means the club is only functional after 4pm for 6 months of the year and players are moving to other clubs or sports. Being the ONLY 4 court town club in the County/Leicestershire without lights is not just limiting provision but also threatening the future of the club and available tennis in the area. Do we want to be a town without a tennis club? Floodlighting is now so technically advanced that the light is focussed almost entirely on the court area only; lights are also of low height. So, floodlit tennis clubs all around the UK co-exist happily with residents in the middle of built up housing areas. Can’t we secure the same for our town? Please support and sign this petition below so we can collectively press our landlords the Town Council, to sustain and develop tennis as a sport in our town.
