LED Lighting At DNTC
We are very please to announce that in the coming weeks we will be installing new LED lights on all 6 courts.
This installation will bring energy efficiency along with increased levels of lighting that equal that of ITF television requirements.
Even though the light output is much greater, the energy will be significantly reduced. LED bulbs use less power and also help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by saving energy. The new fixtures are projected to save 220,000 kWh annually, which is a 40% reduction of the building’s past energy use.
The light itself is a pure white similar to outdoor daylight so visibility on court will greatly increase. Lights will still be reflected to the ceiling so no bright light will distract from play.
You can see our new lights the next time you are playing. Look up on Court 2 and you will see two lights that are installed that showed the quality and level of light coming to our facility.
We are very glad to be able to offer this to our members as we prepare for the winter season.
Nichent Energy, Efficiency NS and NS Power are partners in this project and we are thankful for their contribution to bring this project to LIGHT.
THE FUTURE OF TENNIS IN NOVA SCOTIA
The Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre is open year-round rain, snow or shine.
Our HarTru clay courts are the only indoor clay courts east of Montreal and feature player benches on every court, scorecards, single sticks and waste baskets. Our proshop offers a selection of brand name tennis balls, along with DNTC branded clothing, racquet stringing and refreshments. Our racquet stringing services offer numerous options in string choices and racquet maintenance for tennis, squash or badminton.
The Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre is designed to grow tennis in Nova Scotia. Phase one is already completed with 6 indoor clay courts, lounge, offices, showers and ample parking. Phase 2 will include 4 more outdoor courts that will be open for summer play along with a small stadium to bring higher levels of tennis to Halifax and the province. Within 5 years we plan on building a total of 14 courts for both indoor and outdoor play along with numerous junior training courts. Below is an artist rendering of our site and plans for the future.
