Facilities Guidance Note 8

FLOODLIGHTING

INTRODUCTION

There are a number of key facility issues affecting clubs and restricting the growth of the game. One of these

issues is the lack of, or poor quality of floodlighting. Accordingly, the installation of floodlighting for training

is one of the facility improvements which are eligible under the Sport Wales Development Grant Scheme

providing that “Value for Money” in terms of increased membership and participation can be shown.

This guide has been designed to provide comprehensive coverage of virtually all aspects relating to the

floodlighting of WRU rugby pitches and training areas but should not detract from the fact that a floodlighting

expert should be commissioned to design and install a system appropriate to your requirements.

For ease of reference it has been prepared in sections progressing from concept to completed installation,

maintenance and possible future upgrading:
