Bradfield College Main Sports and Tennis Hall


Bradfield, United K

Founded in 1850, Bradfield College is one of the country’s leading co-educational, independent schools specializing in Cricket and Tennis.  They have their own tennis centre with three indoor courts as well as the country's first indoor cricket training facility.

In order to comply with LawnTennis Association (LTA) UK and the England Cricket Board (ECB), 750 lux is required at floor level for both Tennis and Cricket.  This was the number one requirement for any new lighting installation.  In addition, in order to adjust the lighting for other sports, a simplified control system was also needed. 


Powercor installed Gentlespace High Bays controlled by a Philips' Dynalite system enabling the facitilities manager and coaches to control the lighting levels based on their immediate needs.  When not in use, the dimmed lights gave Bradfield a massive energy savings adding to an already world-class, state of the art training facility. 


Impact on end-user

The before and after pictures tells the story: shadows and dark spots were the norm in the Tennis Centre.  After installing the Philips High Bays, lux levels were at the required levels and every player immediately noticed the difference.  Lux levels for the new cricket facility was even more critical as hard balls are being hit at up to 160km/h.  The new facility's lighting offers maximum safety due to its lighting. 

We chose Powercor in the end as they instilled upon us their expertise in lighting and installation.  They were friendly, punctual and very flexible.
  The college is over the moon with the result, but more importantly, our students are excelling at sports due to the new lighting system."
