An American maker of lighting systems for sports courts is touting advances in technology which have let it drop prices.

LED technology is “constantly improving” in energy efficiency, lumen output and module life while the cost is falling, according to the firm.

But tennis players shouldn’t hold their breath – even with the new lower costs, a full set of lights are priced just shy of $20,000 (£12k).

Steven Rothschild, CEO of Massachusetts-based firm Access Fixtures said: “LED tennis courts are becoming the preferred solution in areas with high energy costs, like Hawaii where electricity costs between $0.30 and $0.50/kWh, or on Caribbean islands where power supplies are both limited and expensive.”
