Wiseman was engaged in 2014 as the club wanted to light court 8 with LED in addition to their 7 existing courts lit with metal halide. Expectations at the club were managed with Wiseman advising the club to wait as until product testing was complete. In 2015, a suitable product passed Wiseman’s testing and the company was engaged to obtain planning in a very difficult location with residential properties only meters from the court. Planning was granted without an objection and the new 500 lux LED installation on 4 x 9m columns were installed within a week.

Members of Wigmore Lawn Tennis Club in southwest London have welcomed new 500lux LED Floodlighting, installed by Wiseman Lighting. President of Wigmore LTC, Louise McKerchar, says, “Wigmore has always aimed to provide the best court surfaces and lighting for our members and we were excited about the prospect of being one of the first tennis clubs to install LED lights. We are extremely pleased with the new LED’s installed by Wiseman and playing under them is a wonderful experience. They have a great “Wow” factor and many local clubs now want to come down and try them out! It was a joy to work with the Wiseman group and while the project took longer than we would have initially liked, it was well worth listening to Harry Riste’s advice that the technology was changing fast and we should be a little patient and wait for the right product. He was so right! Planning permission went through easily and actual installation of the lights took just 6 days – absolutely fantastic!”
