Let there be light

Our courts are available to play on all year round and all day long.

The lighting system was a project partnership between Nelson City Council and Nelson Lawn Tennis Club and we're all very proud that Nelson has a fantastic tennis centre that makes participating in sport and leisure activities even easier.

Non-Members

There is signage at the courts that lets you know how to use the lights.

We've tried to make it as easy as possible.

The system uses a white magnetic card. These cards are available at the Sprig & Fern pub on Milton Street. The pub is open early in the day and late into the night, so should be open at a convenient time for you to get a card.

  • Go to Sprig & Fern, 134 Milton Street and purchase a light card ($10 - 1hr, $20 - 2hr, $80 for 10hrs), with $10 deposit required
  • Access court (3 x $2 in coin box)
  • Swipe card and select available court to activate lights
  • At 5 minutes to the end of an hour, re-swipe and press button again to continue, or exit court
  • Return card to Sprig & Fern to get your $10 deposit back
