Portarlington Tennis Club HAWKeye LED lighting vs Metal Halide lighting
Located on the Bellarine Peninsula, Portarlington Tennis Club had a requirement for lighting their existing courts and keeping the operating costs to a minimum. Surfcoast Shire were considering a 1000w Metal Halide lighting system until we put forward our proposal for the HAWKeye 500W LED lighting system. In comparison, we were able to provide almost double the lighting levels and reduce the operating costs by 50%. By electing to install our system, the club had peace of mind in knowing that there were no ongoing consumable maintenance costs unlike the Metal Halide system.

Tally Ho Tennis Club - Change over to the HAWKeye LED lighting system
Located in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Tally Ho Tennis Club has been an established club for over 40 years with great facilities and a strong membership. In 2009, they added a single Championship Show court to their facility with a 1000W Metal Halide lighting system.
In 2016, we were approached to provide a state-of-the-art tennis court lighting system to compliment this court.
It had to be brighter, better and more energy efficient than their existing Metal Halide system in place, as this was their "Showcase" court for all to see.
They required a premium LED lighting system of excellent uniformity with increased lighting and minimum glare for optimum playing conditions.
We were able to increase their lighting levels by 60% and reduce their operating costs by 50%. Our fitting was a direct retrofit onto the existing poles, meaning, that there was no modifications required to the existing mounting brackets and poles to install our HAWKeye fixtures. This kept site labour costs down to a minimum and the changeover look of the fittings on the existing poles was excellent. The HAWKeye 500 LED lighting system was deemed a great addition to the facilities, by the club, coaches and it's members.
Point Malcolm - Council elects to use 'low level' HAWKeye LED lighting system
The Point Malcolm reserve is a pleasant recreational reserve located adjacent the oceanside Adelaide suburb of Semaphore. Part of the reserves recent major redevelopment program included the refurbishment of 2 tennis courts and a basketball court. The Charles Sturt council as part of this redevelopment called on contractors to provide pricing for a floodlighting system to the tennis courts using a specified traditional metal halide lighting system on 10m light towers.
After a review of the courts surrounding environment, it became apparent to D&A Lighting Systems that a tall tower lighting system would only be a detraction to the existing landscape with unwanted "spill lighting" from unsightly tall lighting towers. After councils careful tender evaluation process the Hawkeye low mount LED lighting system soon became the preferred option. The Point Malcolm reserve public tennis courts are now used by hundreds of people each week who enjoy all the benefits of brilliant even environmentally friendly LED lighting.
