North Yorkshire, England
The project at Ben Rhydding Hockey Club in Ilkley saw Halliday Lighting involved in improving lighting for an existing hockey pitch as well as installing floodlights for a new pitch built by SIS Pitches.
The pitches at Ben Rhydding Hockey Club are used for nearly 20 senior and junior club teams and by Ilkley Grammar School during the daytime too.
Having two floodlit hockey pitches makes the club one of the largest multi-sport facilities in the region. It also creates more space for training and extends the hours of pitch use available at the club.
The existing hockey pitch at Ben Rhydding Hockey Club saw Halliday Lighting re-head the metal halide floodlights. This is something that is usually needed after a number of years of usage, when it becomes more cost-efficient to replace the lights rather than to keep maintaining and fixing them.
LED floodlights were then installed for the new hockey pitch providing a state-of-the-art solution for this facility.
