The Tatlock Tennis Courts, located off of Butler Parkway in Summit have had lights for many years. Those lights were controlled by a timer that was set based on seasonal needs. The courts would be lighted nightly, even when not in use.
The lights at Tatlock are now available "On Demand" with the use of a manual timer. Tennis players can now set the amount of time they need to play and the timer does the rest. The timers can only be activated during the hours of 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM for the Spring and Summer Season. This improvement was made with both energy and cost savings in mind. Tennis enthusiasts are asked to set the timers for only the time they need to complete their match.
