Memorial Drive, Tennis Centre- Adelaide SA Australia

Opened in 1921, Memorial Drive is one of the world's great tennis clubs. It is full of tradition, and for more than seventy years has been the headquarters of South Australian tennis. The complex is located next door to the Adelaide Oval and contains many courts including Centre Court which has two grandstands at either end with seating for approximately 5000 people. The Memorial Drive Tennis Centre has been undergoing a complete re-development with the major part being the Centre Court upgrade. It now has a four plexi-cushion courts in readiness for the 2008 Next Generation Adelaide International. The plexi-cushion surface is the same surface to be used at the 2008 Australian Open and the Medibank International. As part of the upgrade, new lighting was desired to bring the facility up to a national / international standard (1000 lux per Australian Standard AS2560.2.1.) The four existing 20m poles were re-used in their corner positions. Each pole was installed with eight new Philips ArenaVision 2kW floodlights. In addition, Philips Optivision floodlights were positioned under the eaves of the grandstands. These supplemental flat glass luminaires provide the necessary vertical illumination for television coverage to CIE 169.
