Smart solar-powered gates

Smart solar-powered gates have been installed across Brent’s tennis courts.

Eight of Brent’s nine park tennis sites are now solar powered, with environmentally-friendly gates offering instant access to court users. Using the sun’s energy makes the operation zero carbon and reduces energy bills allowing us to dedicate that money to other park improvement initiatives.

Cllr Krupa Sheth, Lead Member for Environment, said: “We’re committed to reducing Brent’s carbon footprint and this is yet another example of using technology to reduce our impact on the environment whilst providing the best service to residents. Where it is safe to do so, I hope these tennis courts will help people to keep fit and active.”

Brent tennis courts are affordable and easy to book via ClubSpark.
