The Autumnwood courts will soon have better lighting.
Reston Association has kicked off a lighting project that will bring upgraded LED lights and automated lighting controls to the tennis and pickleball courts.
The project will cost $80,000, according to Mike Leone, RA’s spokesman.
The project is expected to begin today, according to a statement by Reston Association. The tennis facility will be closed until Feb. 15. But pickleball activities can continue on Lake Newport during construction at Autumnwood.
Later this spring, two of the tennis courts will be converted into four pickleball courts.
Once construction is completed and the Autumnwood courts reopen, Lake Newport’s courts will return to tennis only.
Lighting upgrades are also planned at the Hook Road tennis facility. That work is expected to begin in March, depending on the weather, Leone said.
