TV De Delftse Hout

Tennis club De Delftse Hout is the largest tennis club in Delft and one of the largest in the region of The Hague. Dutch top tennis players such as Arantxa Rus and Robin Haase regularly train on one of the 12 outdoor courts. During the installation, 28 conventional 2200 Watt fixtures were replaced by 28 pieces of 1000 Watt LICHT2 LED fixtures. In the months that followed, all tracks were completely renewed, except for the light poles. The new LED fixtures weigh only 15 kilograms, no necessary investment in new masts was required.

The result is astonishing; 4 “center court” courts with an average lux output above 750 lux and 8 courts with an average of 400 lux. TV De Delftse Hout is very pleased with the new lighting. “With this investment, we contribute to a greener and sustainable future. Partly due to the high light output, the tennis club can grow in its ambitions by organizing more large tournaments with international and national top players”, says Onno Posthumus.
