Through its Strategic Plan 2009 to 2013, Plympton Sports and Recreation Club developed strategies for seeking cost effective ways to maximise the use of their facilities and encourage more people to be active in sports and recreation.
The oval is located on the corner of Milton Avenue and Park Terrace, Plympton and now features 4 x 25m INGAL EPS Floodlighting Poles with 5 x Philips Optivisions supplied by Pierlite.
The lighting upgrade has not only helped to improve player safety at night, but also in Turf Management.
The installation of new lights has removed black spots which resulted in overuse of some areas on the oval. The new lighting system allows the club to implement training programs that rotate sessions around the whole field, spreading the wear and allowing greater recovery time to turf.
