Lighting renovation kit for tennis courts in Patton Park

On Monday, the Town of Hendersonville will begin a project to renovate the lighting of the tennis courts located in Patton Park. The project will run throughout August and during this time there will be no backyard lighting available in the evening.

The renovation includes a complete upgrade to the tennis court lighting system and the replacement of existing bulbs with more energy efficient and efficient LED fixtures.

Daytime use of the tennis court will still be available during the project. If court closures are required, Public Works staff will close the courts temporarily and as needed.

The City’s public works department is carrying out the renovations during the summer to ensure the project is completed before the arrival of the limited sunshine hours of the fall and winter seasons.
